<p>I’m trying to read my son’s schedule and this is what I’ve come up with:</p>
<p>Med Ethics/Phl 225
Southern Val UH101
MDGR - (not sure what this is, but it’s in Comer Hall)</p>
<p>He claims he wants to study medicine (we’ll see how he does when he takes chemistry).
He’s coming in with the following AP credits: Bio, Eng Lang/Comp, Psychology, Statistics, Calculus BC, Econ-mac. He received a 5 on all AP </p>
<p>He received the following message from the Honors College:
"After reviewing your schedule, I noticed that you are currently registered for 10 Honors hours in the fall. I truly value your desire to engage in an Honors intensive curriculum in your first semester, but I would suggest you consider spreading out your Honors courses throughout your undergraduate experience. You will have many other semesters to complete the 18 hour University Honors requirement. </p>
<p>Transitioning into a collegiate environment can be a strenuous, time-consuming endeavor, and taking a heavy load of Honors courses in your first semester could result in a lower GPA. I want to encourage you to explore other ways to get involved in the Honors College rather than taking multiple Honors classes in your first term. Consider engaging in a host of extracurricular activities, including getting involved with the Honors College Assembly, to balance your academic coursework with other experiences in your first semester."</p>
<p>He is taking his sweet old time, in terms of making changes to his schedule, so I’m looking for input so I can push him in the right direction.</p>
<p>Does anyone have any suggestions?
