Opinion needed ASAP

  1. I am a mother of two (9 & 6), I I already in my 1st semester of school. So far it's been pretty good. Beginning in the summer semester I have to take A & P I, Physchology, and Human Communications. I am scared to death! Does anyone think that that is possible, especially being that the summer semester is broken down to about 1 1/2 months instead of 4. Please help me ASAP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I think anything's possible. Since your children are a little older and can entertain themselves (I'm assuming here) that should help. I know you can do it! Good luck!

    I think you can do it. I remember one busy summer I had: a 3-week American history class, a 5-week Spanish one class, a 5-week Physics class, and then Spanish 2 the last 5 weeks of summer. I made 2 A's and 2 B's.

    Just remember, you don't have to make an "A" in everything; you're already in the program. Survival is the most important thing. If you live near two different colleges, you can mix and match and pick the best scheduling options to help you out, assuming you can transfer credits into your program. And some courses are on television, video tape, etc., (Psychology). I would pick Psychology and the communications class to speed through, and get the most # of weeks for the A&P class.

    Also, maybe if the boys could spend time in day camps or summer camps that might be a way to occupy their time. I always loved Bible camp. They also have sports camps for kids.

    Best of luck to you! Tell us how it works out for you.

    What would that be?... 9 or ten hours? I think 8 is considered full time for a summer semester.

    I think it is do-able; keep to a schedule and don't let yourself get distracted.
    Good luck!

    I did a month long (5 week) bio course (first course in 10 years) with 5 month old twins and a 1 1/2 year old. Got an A too. Anything is possible and don't let the courses scare you. It can be done!
