Classes for Senior Year

So I am thinking about only taking two classes for fall of my senior year. Cancer biology and immunology, plus 6 hours of research credit. This will put me at the minimum for a full time student. I'll also be TA'ing an intro level bio class. My hopes are that the reduced course load will open up plenty of time for research and my senior honors thesis. I'm curious if grad schools will be critical of that fact that I am only taking two lecture classes.

    I doubt they'll care. Research matters much more.

    More time for research = good. If you feel like you've taken nice and heavy classes the rest of your time, you'll be fine. Besides, you need the extra time for apps, too. No worries.

    I agree with sarbruis and EvoViro. As long as you've taken a solid core of advanced bio courses, you should be fine. And more time for research = always good.

    I was hoping this would be the case and feel much better about it now. Thanks for the replies.
