<p>Side question: Do professors usually have open research positions around this time of the year? Or is it better to wait for URAP in the spring?</p>

<p>Those are three pretty intense classes. I'm actually taking Math 53 and Stats 134 concurrently right now, and as these are my first real math classes in more than 3 years, it is a challenge.</p>

<p>I'd say though, that if you have background in maths or statistics, enough to help you get through Math 53 or Stats 134 decently, then go for it. Most of what you learn in both classes is not going to coincide.</p>

<p>Econ 101A is intense but if you're good at micro, it's fine.</p>

<p>As a whole, I'd say that's not a bad courseload. It's on the tougher side, but as long as you stick to that AC or easier writing course, you should be fine.</p>

<p>54's a lot easier than 53. 101A starts out easy (just basic utility theory and some partial derivatives) and gets a little more difficult. Same with Stat 134 (starts with discrete probability like AP statistics). Very manageable courseload. </p>

<p>Would be considered cake if you were an engineering major.</p>
