Too much for a freshman!?

<p>This is what I'm hoping for my first semester as a freshman:</p>

<p>German 1<br>
Intro. to Policy Analysis<br>
Calculus 1<br>
Intermediate Microeconomics<br>
FWS: Fairy Tale to uncanny
Intro. to Competitive rowing**</p>

<p>**This class is a 2-week intensive course at the beginning of the semester. Therefore, the first 2 weeks of school are the only period where I'd have a time constraint of a PE class. After that, it's 5 academic courses.</p>

<p>Is this too much? I think it's a good foundation and allows me to ease up an explore more. Plus, I plan on studying abroad for a semester.</p>

<p>I don't think it'll be too much. Five classes are pretty reasonable. As long as you're not a klutz around new languages or find math challenging, German and Calculus should be fine. If you've done microeconomics before, Intro Micro should be fine as well. I can't comment on policy analysis and the FWS (how do you know which one you're going to get, anyway) but I think your schedule looks fine as long as you have a strong work ethic.</p>

<p>Yea I do. Plus I'm excited to start German and heard it's not very demanding. I'm also retaking Calculus because I want to have a strong foundation in it before I move onto Calc 2. Yea, my FWS was just what I'm hoping for (plus I heard it's easy :p ). Intermediate Micro might be hard. I got a 4 on the Micro AP and need to brush up a little.</p>

<p>Thanks for the advice!</p>

<p>srrinath, if you look under ENGL or HIST (I don't others ... I haven't bothered to look too much into it), you'll see a lot of FWS options
Cornell</a> University Registrar: Course and Time Roster Fall 2010</p>

<p>@runner43: Consider ECON 3010 instead. It covers content from both intro and intermediate micro, and will probably be a more cohesive overview of the subject. </p>

<p>@ansar: I saw that a while back, but my point was that balloting for a particular FWS doesn't guarantee that you'll get it.</p>

<p>if you do choose Econ 3130, you don't really need to brush up on your AP material...everything you'll need to do well will be presented in the actual course.</p>

<p>@ansar: Those FWS options aren't up to date and there's a good chance that they won't be offered this fall.</p>

<p>what if you continue to row after the gym class ends?</p>

<p>@suzaliscious: Considering they're on the Fall 2010 roster, what makes you think they aren't up to date?</p>

<p>@somni: I plan to run on and off for the running club
@suzaliscious: I found those FWS options on the up-to-date Fall 2010 course time/roster.</p>

<p>And to everybody...I'm in Policy Analysis & Management, and I think we have to take a specific Intermediate Microeconomics. It's called PAM 2000 and called 'Intermediate Microeconomics.' Is that class equivalent to other Intermediate Micro courses? If I was to switch to AEM would it be transferrable or would I have to re-take a different Intermediate Micro class?</p>
