Chemistry + Biology + Psychology (all with labs) in one semester. Is it doable?
Hi, I'm getting ready to start my first semester of college. I'm a neuroscience major and pre-med. My general honors college advisor recommended I take Biology and psychology (+ a couple gen-eds) my first semester, start gen chem my second semester and take gen chem 2 over next summer. However my pre-med advisor thinks I should start gen chem first semester and take Chemistry I, Biology I, and Psychology I (plus labs) all in my first semester. I know how important it is to make A's in these classes (esp bio and chem) and I'm a little nervous that I won't be able to do well in all three at the same time. Any advice from those who have taken a similar schedule would be really great. Thanks6 replies
