I think my course-load seems too scattered and light in order to be competitive for transferring...I've been looking at liberal arts schools like Williams, Rice, and Pomona.
Freshman year first semester:
Intro to Econ (4) A
Calc II (4) A-
English Class (4) A-
History breadth class (4) P [took it pass/no pass]
Total graded units: 12
Chem I (4) A
Astronomy (3) A
Metabolism Class (3) A
Psych I (3) A
Total graded units: 13
Also had some pass/no pass electives
Chem II (5) will probably get an A
Physics (4) will probably get an A
Math III (4) will probably get an A
---upper div anatomy--- (3) will probably get a C or B minus... am trying to figure this stupid situation out right now.
If I drop this bio class, I will only have 13 graded units.
Thoughts on my schedule? I'm in quite a messy predicament right now. I'm really worried about how my course-load will affect my chances. I do have a decent GPA and extracurriculars but I don't know if the light course-load will cancel this out.
