    Sounds like a reasonable schedule (as long as you're able to get Tuesday's assignments done before Thursday). I took 4 courses/quarter when doing my prereqs, and it worked out OK.

    You've got those nice 4 hour gaps in your school days - those are great to work on homework or other assignments, or just to study for upcoming tests/quizzes.

    I also think it sounds like a very reasonable schedule. Most of my fellow classmates (and myself) juggle a lot more than this and we're all able to get good grades if we put our minds to it! I typically took around 4 courses a semester, worked full time, and volunteered every week and things were just fine. Also, you have four days off of school! That's amazing. I think you'll actually find yourself with some free time on your hands! I wish you the best of luck!

    It is very reasonable. Right now I am taking 2 online courses and one class on saturday. Next I am taking AP1 on T/R, APlab on R afew hours after lecture, MWF I am taking ethics and Saturday I am taking human growth and development. It will keep me busy but I don't mind because I don't really work, maybe only 2 hours a week.

    You didn't say what classes you taking. I mean if you took 4 3 units classes then yes hell of easy. If your taking like 2-3 science pre-reqs then yes. No more than 2 classes with lab I would say.

    u sound ok unless ur like taking like 2 science pre-req at the same time- which is doable just hard.

    Very reasonable. I will go every day M-F in the Fall and my shortest day I will be on campus for 3 hours. I will be taking, A&P1 with lab, Humanities lecture along with a separate discussion session, and then Developmental Psych. Of course I am not physcially working outside of my home either, I stay home with my wonderful brats... ahem... kids. set up a schedule for study time and stick to it.

    It sounds doable; I took 18 credit last Spring and I got a 4.0, bear in my that I only had 1 science class with lab though. This coming Fall, I will be taking 19 credit, with 2 science class both with lab so I am hoping to get good grades as well.
    Goodluck.

    Sounds pretty good. Just make sure that you can handle it....you would know better than us. Just make sure that its something that you can fit into your life without completely overworking yourself and letting your work or school falter. Good luck!

    Sounds very reasonable... I was in class from 8am-4:45pm, had a break from 4:45-6:30pm, then worked from 6:30 pm to 7am and still ended up with a 3.0 GPA for that semester. Was taking microbiology, devp psych, and chemistry.

    You have plenty of time to study especially on your off days and even when you get off from work.

    Good luck!

    Thank you guys so much!!! I didn't know if it was too much or not. I am taking A&P1, Philosophy, Algebra and English???? My A&p class is at night from 6:30-9:30pm. I wanted to start really slow like 2 classes a semester but my grant won't allow it. I am thinking about turining in my 2 week notice at work so I can be 100% dedicated.
