    If you work part-time or not at all ...totally doable, no question. If you work full-time ...well, it's doable, but it will be rough. Just my lovely opinion though.

    Well, that's pretty awesome that you get extra study time at work. And no, I haven't ...I start with Anatomy next semester.

    Mom2josh makes a good point that I didn't even notice and that you should certainly consider. It is also advised at my school not to take Physio (which I think is the equivalent of A&P II) and Micro together. If you have to, yeah, it's doable ...but it's going to be a lot of work and dedication on your part. You know yourself better than any of us. If you're absolutely determined and willing to put in the time, you can still do well taking both.

    I am jealous of your part-time job AND that you can study there

    Good luck with whatever you choose.

    I would kick English and the elective for fall. Other than that, doable. (I did something similar this year)

    last spring i took 19 cr. apII, micro, ancient lit(writing intensive), anthropology, and intro to algebra all while working FULL TIME and still had time for two vacations and weekly movie nights with my bf.

    its definitely possible...imo ap II and micro complemented eachother nicely

    oh and i got one B+ in micro because i was ill during an exam (i.e. came straight from urgent care on pain meds to the test) and a B in math bc i suck at math. But i got A's in all the other classes

    If they are 5 week classes, I would suggest you hold back on taking sciences during the summer. I don't know how it is for your school, but at my school the 5 week A&P and chem classes are set up for students who failed those classes during the regular semester. A lot of it will be learning stuff at home on your own (which is hard for most people do to when talking about sciences). I took English over the summer, online and in 5 weeks. It was so easy. I suggest you look into classes that aren't as difficult. Good luck
