I read somewhere that the average course load is 16 units a quarter, is that pretty typical? I 'm thinking of taking 18 in the fall (poli sci major), is this too much (working like 15 hours a week). What does everyone here usually take?
I'm doing 30 right now! However, 8 of those are TA'ing and research.
Also, you don't need 12/quarter to be full-time; rather, you just need 36 total in an academic year (which averages 9/quarter, if you count summer). If you fail to meet this, then you will face consequences.
Pretty much I have my sisters guiding me and I know that I want to go to med school.
I'm going in undeclared but I want Bio. I'm maxed out in AP credit and I have 5 units in science from last summer, I'm willing to take as many as needed. I'm in Muir, I know that'll make a difference.
Its not getting out asap without regard, its just I want to go to med school as fast as possible. And even if I wanted to wait till after my fourth year to apply, I'd still be free to go abroad and volunteer or something.
