How heavy is "heavy course load"

<p>I just heard from someone accepted in Hass, and he saids, "heavy course load". How heavy is HEAVY? </p>

<p>Of my case I took the greatest teacher of my institution offers, so a normal English 1 class, its difficulty goes about equivalent to a teacher who thinks this is the class you are taking. 11 essay question per every 2 week, and repeat 5 times, and in between 1 research paper, 1 week of due day for example. </p>

<p>So on my transcript of one semester:
English 1 (4 unit)
Calculus 2 (5 unit)
Introduction to Bussiness (3 unit)</p>

<p>really just look like a piece cake. But really NOT!
{I did successfully finished the classes thou}</p>

<p>Thanks People</p>

<p>I would imagine that a heavy course load relates directly to the amount of units you're taking.</p>

<p>18+ units 10char</p>

<p>That is really not smart on the part of the officer. Well maybe if I provide sufficient explanations in part three, it will be okay. I guess. What to do you think?</p>

<p>What kind of case are you trying to make? Did you not receive satisfactory grades in the classes you mentioned above? I doubt it will really make a difference if you received all A's.</p>

<p>Heavy is 50 units+. My friend did that during his 1 year at CC and got accepted into Wharton. Take a lot of units and you will impress. Teacher reputation does not matter. Admissions officers don't know your teachers.</p>

<p>At my CC, you can't take more than 15 or 17 units per semester and you need a derogation to get 17...</p>

<p>How do you guys do to take so many units? Do you attend two CC or take online classes from other CC?</p>

<p>@zwip778, I totally agree with you. Same here at my CC. But this guy, of one semester had completed 24 units. Crazy I thought.</p>

<p>Well, good to know that I am not the only one to find all those threads about taking 30 units/semester surprising due to the budget cut in california.</p>

<p>your workload is not heavy at all with what you listed. It is 12 units of CCC coursework. 12 units at UC Berkeley was way more time consuming than when i took 23 units at CCC and got a 4.0. I cannot even begin to explain how much harder your coursework will get once you transfer if you are in a technical major.</p>

<p>In all fairness English is clearly not the OP's first language. Furthermore, if the OP's teacher was very demanding it could explain why he/she found the courseload a bit difficult.</p>

<p>I personally found that my level 3 spanish class at CC was harder than any of the econ, physics, programming, and math (with the exception of one class) that I had taken at my CC or UCLA. Nonetheless, there were many others who excelled in that class with much less effort.</p>

<p>I thank you of your words Supa-Ramaba. And plus I must admit. I am not smart, and I definitely will agree if someone say I have an ignorant mind. But difficulty I fear not, for it is because of this I work extra harder.</p>

<p>I did 23 units one semester. </p>

<p>English 101/103(6)
Calc 1 (5)
Gov (3)
Macro econ(3)
Programming in C(3)
Programming in c++(3)</p>

<p>English 101/103 was accelerated 8 week classes in the same time slot so was c/c++ so it wasn't too bad. Proper time management and keeping on top of your work makes it easy</p>

<p>If you don't consider yourself "smart", why would you want to go to Haas? </p>

<p>Honestly, you either need to get some self-respect or admit that you're not book-smart enough to go to a prestigious school, it's not the end of the world.</p>

<p>I am working full-time (spend my afternoons and nights (yes, sometimes until 2 AM) working for a production company) + 15 units at my CC + english is my second language too</p>

<p>If you were an EECS major at MIT or Berkeley, I would start getting your point.</p>

<p>Edit: I am sorry if I sound arrogant, it's just my opinion based on what you said. You know yourself better than I do so...</p>

<p>Well, english is not my native language but still, I think that you should take some ESL classes even if you're a native speaker...</p>

<p>Did I say at any point that I was "proud" or "bragging" about me working full time and taking 15 units? I simply stated those facts, without either mentioning that it was a lot of work nor saying that it was not. </p>

<p>Example: My car is red.</p>

<p>Does that mean that I am bragging about the fact that my car is red?
No, that's just me stating a fact...</p>

<p>I have some friends back in France that do not work but are in classes pr</p>

<p>Weak analogy doesn't denote the fact that you appeared to be bragging.</p>

<p>No I just tried to contrast his situation with my situation. The difference of workload between his and mine made, I admit that, me sound like if I was bragging. But, that's not because I was bragging, that's just because there is indeed a big gap between his workload and mine which in itself makes me sound arrogant without having said anything arrogant...</p>

<p>Another example: </p>

<p>Guy 1: I am rich I make 100k a year</p>

<p>Guy 2 with his ferarri: I make twice that amount every month</p>

<p>The guy 2 does not have to be actually arrogant to sound arrogant. He is only stating a fact, but the huge difference makes him sound arrogant.</p>

<p>Hope you get it.</p>
