I will be attending university next year where I hope to major in Sociology or Social Work.
I would like to get my Bachelor's in the typical 4 years. (meaning 15 credit-hours a semester.)
I also will be needing a part-time job. My parents are in a bad financial situation and I can't expect to get cash from them for gas, food, clothing, or simple accessories. If I do get money, it certainly won't be enough!
My question is this.. Is it over burdening to take 5 classes a semester while maintaining a job?(Hopefully a job where I can work like 4 or 5 hours a day.)
I ask because one of my brother's professors said that taking 12 credit-hours per semester should be the max someone takes.. But I find this to be silly as most seem to take 15!
