    Hmm, well the thing is that my college doesn't offer A&P II or micro over summer. Rarely do they offer Organic Chem as well. As far as financial aid goes, I get more money if I go full-time, which I use to help out my family. Plus EOPS want all of their students to enroll in full-time.

    I understand. What about the other none science classes like Spanish and Music? :]

    I think the second course schedule you listed is much better.

    I've NEVER heard anyone say that they were taking Organic Chemistry "for fun."

    But to answer your question, I think that your schedule definitely doable.

    The second schedule would make you more appealing. Take anything medical oriented you could. Look into the other medical programs and see if you could add anything from them like medical terminology or something from surgical tech division. You could probably get multiple associates degrees that way.

    I'm confused as to why you're taking organic chemistry for fun? Isn't that counterintuitive to wanting to protect your 4.0?

    Decided to stick to the "nursing" route, and space off the music stuff. :-) I'd figured, I can always do music and art some other time.. As for now, I should just concentrate on my career.

    Here's my final choice:

    Spring 2013
    A&P II
    Health Science

    Summer 2013:

    Fall 2013:
    Oral Communication
    Spanish for Medical Interpretation

    Oops, i'm sorry, I meant to put
    "Intro to Organic Chem & Biochem", it's a much more lenient class for allied health majors :-)
