Im taking:
Monday - Pre Cal w/Trig 6-8:40
Tuesday - Human Anatomy w/lab 5-9:40
Wednesday - MacroEconomics 6-8:40
Thursday - Chem II w/lab 5-9:40

Thats 14 credits with two labs..Just taking the basic courses. I work durning the day so I have to go to school at night for now :)

But my last semester in school before I graduated looked as awful as some of the above:

Biochemistry II
Biochem II Lab
Physical Chemistry
Integrated PChem Lab
Quantitative Analyisis
Quant Lab
3 hours of Independent Study in Biology (research)
Physics II Lab

Yeah, but I had some problems with schedule request, so as of now I am not scheduled for it. Hopefully I'll be able to get in after the purge date or after the first day.

Easiest, or maybe just lightest, semester yet.

General Genetics

O-chem II w/lab

13 hours in total which beats the 16 hours I've had every semester for the last 2-1/2 years. Unfortunately, I still have to work next semester.

Why do you think that Microbiology is going to be your hardest class? Just curious? It is a lot of work, but not very hard to understand (nothing like Organic :scared: ) Than again maybe you are one one those who love O-chem :) Anatomy requires a lot of time as well....memorizing tuberosities, condyles, tubercules... enjoy! :)

Oh yeah, which sounds more interesting?
1. Building synthetic membrane
2. Purifying other useful drugs from caffeine
3. Protein modeling

It's so hard to decide! #3 is hard because I have never done it before so it'll be like another class for me. #2 is just like organic chemistry so it should be less time intensive than the other two. #1--> I have to talk with the research advisor to find out more info about it. But from what I read on his profile, he builds synthetic membrane to ease drug coming into the membrane or something like that.

This seems easy too since I know many things about cell membrane already.

Ah Microbio is known to be one of the harder classes offered down here. I've heard many horror stories about it :(. Microbio is also all group based. You're assigned groups at the beginning of the semester and your grade depends on the performance of the people in your group. On quiz days a person is randomly selected from your group and takes the quiz. You (and the rest of the group) get the grade that they make on the quiz and have no control if they fail it. Lab is taught in groups also :(.

That is the most amazing thing I've ever heard. That's even worse than my physics class where the curve is based on the average score on exams, but the exams are so easy that everybody gets a 100 percent (well, not everybody but the average is really high). So people with 94% at the end of the semester are looking at B's.

So, do the people in your group also pay your tuition? That just sounds like a lazy ass professor who needs a career change to me.

Really? That does sound very different. My Microbiology class had lab group work, but testing was done on an individual basis. I guess just hope for a great "group" and maybe try to find creative ways to motivate others if you need to. :laugh:

That has to be the most ridiculous thing I've ever heard. Sorry but I can't believe the professor can get away with something like that. That's not hard, it's just stupid. Sounds to me like someone told you a story to scare you :p

I am still deciding if I'll take Calculus next semester (depends if I pass trig!). If not, then in the summer.

Has anyone ever taken a science course online? I'm apprehensive about taking Chemistry as an online course, but it's the most convienient for my family's schedule right now.
