Does anyone think this class schedule is too hard? - page 2

Hi everyone! I will be transferring to the University of Detroit Mercy this Fall, and I will have a full slate of pre-requisite classes - some classes I hear are really hard to be exact. :uhoh21:... Read More

    Once again everyone, thank so much for your feedback! You all sound so amazing, pulling As with all these responsibilities and other hard classes! I only hope I can be as amazing as everyone here is! One reason I'm still worried about taking such a heavy course load is that I will be all on my own -no family in Michigan - in a new school and trying to adjust to dorm life. I'm never afraid to talk to my teachers -personally I think its critical in some classes- and I study pretty hard (I usually end up knowing my teachers better than my fellow classmates LOL). Still, I hope I don't get overwhelmed with all the personal changes I have to adjust to. I'm pretty good with rote memorization and things like that, so I think that if I live and breath flashcards LOL, I could make it through A&P pretty well. The thing is I'm having a bit of tough time with Chem. 101, mostly because it requires more 'critical thinking' than the kind of critical thinking I developed in all my past quarters in Math classes. I'm worried this could continue into BioChem. and my advisor (she's an honest sort, which I really appreciate) said BioChem. was a 'make or break' class for pre-nursing students and that you have to of course have good grades in the class - not just 'pass' it. I guess I'll just try my best and pray alot! :bowingpur Thanks everyone for your support and input! Please keep your thoughts coming!

    I think it will be OK if:

    1) you aren't working

    2) you are willing to bypass most other extracurricular activities and spend several hours EACH day to study

    This will be a lot like nursing school so it will actually be a good preview for you.
