Does this look like a reasonable schedule?

<p>Basic Calculus I-Is this the same as AP Calculus?
Principles of Economics-Already took AP Economics in high school lol
Law and Philosophy-Is easier than it sounds
Creative Writing I- oh oh
Human Biology
Human Lab Biology</p>

<p>Am I poised for a good Semester I gpa or what?</p>

<p>It looks pretty solid, as far as GPA that depends on how hard you work</p>

<p>It looks like a relaxing schedule.</p>

<p>My adviser recommended to take 5 classes as that's the average amount of classes a freshman registers for.</p>

<p>I was also required to take a cluster to fulfill my graduation requirements.</p>

<p>

Usually Calculus I is equivalent of AP Calculus AB.</p>

<p>Basic Calculus I=Calculus I?</p>

<p>The only two Calculus I options were Basic Calculus I and Calculus I/w implications so I chose the more standard sounding one in the former.</p>

<p>You mean Calculus I w/ Applications?</p>

<p>Anyway, just make sure Basic Calculus I allows you to take higher-level math, if you're interested in doing so.</p>

<p>I'm only interested in taking 4 math classes my entire college experience
1. Basic Calculus I
2. Calculus II
3. Statistics
4. Statistics II</p>

<p>I'm an Economics major, but I'm getting a B.A degree instead of B.S</p>

<p>An Economics major should need much more than two Calculus classes. In my university, a typical Economics major should take four Calculus classes, and someone who wants to go to graduate school should take at least two more classes in more advanced materials (such as real analysis/complex analysis).</p>

<p>Generally, there are four or five classes in Calculus. The first class corresponds to Calculus AB, the second class corresponds to Calculus BC, the third class is in multivariable calculus, and the fourth class and possibly fifth class are in introductory linear algebra and differential equations.</p>

<p>Doesn't really matter if it's a B.A. or B.S. High school economics is all concepts, but once you get to the college level, mathematics play a huge role. You'll need at least multivariable calculus to survive. In graduate school, economics is entirely based on mathematics.</p>

<p>I'm not really looking to attain a Ph. D in economics, although I'm open to that option.</p>

<p>I'm just using economics as a foundation to built upon for Law School. </p>

<p>From what I understand economics allows you to build on your skills of analyzing, which are very useful for a lawyer.</p>

<p>If you're looking at law school and wants to build on your skills of analyzing, Political Science and History would both be much better majors. English and Psychology are also popular for pre-law students. Economics is not unheard of, but to achieve good grades in economics you almost certainly need an excellent foundation in Calculus, and the huge amount of time required for this is not worthwhile. From what I've gathered from here, mathematics isn't exactly your strength, and your best choice would be to choose another major.</p>

<p>My relationship with math is awkward. </p>

<p>In 1st/2nd grades I was amazing with addition/subtraction/multiplication/division.</p>

<p>I was able to process difficult problems in my head without using paper and pencil. </p>

<p>But when I moved to America, the whole "show your work" thing really ****ed me over as I would prefer to take shortcuts, use my brain instead of paper and was unspecific in my answers(although a lot of them were right). </p>

<p>That slowed me down and affected my grades. </p>

<p>At this point I would say I'm average. </p>

<p>I'm also hesitant in majoring in political science/history because I understand situations change and I may be unable to go to graduate school, so I'll need a useful major if things turn sour. </p>

<p>I don't know, I'll try a couple of semesters of economics and see if I'm able to handle the work load.</p>

<p>Political science is a pretty useful major, actually. The average income of political science majors is on par with economics and higher than every other major in the social sciences and the humanities. But then I might be biased since I'm a Political Science/Economics double major.</p>

<p>Take a course in every field and see what kind of grades you're getting and what kind of materials interest you. Lots of things can change before you have to decide on a major.</p>
