What's an acceptable courseload for freshmen? (pre-Haas)

<p>I'll be applying to Haas and I want to know if this is a doable courseload...</p>

<p>2 Haas prereqs (probably Math 1a and Econ 1)
2 breadth requirements
1 foreign language</p>

<p>A lot of CC's have been saying that 2 prereqs and 2 breadths are reasonable for freshmen. Will taking an extra foreign language class be too much or should I change it to 1 breath and 1 foreign language?</p>

<p>I forgot to add that I'm considering doing work study too. I'm not sure how much I'll be working and how much that will affect my study time...</p>

<p>I heard foreign language classes are really tough. They are, after all, 5 units and they meet every day during the weekdays.</p>

<p>I would say its not a good idea since you would be taking 19 (2 3 unit breadths included) units and doing work study at the same time.</p>

<p>This would mean absolutely NO free time. Don't you want your first semester to be joyful and fun?</p>

<p>Nah, that's not a good schedule. You want to keep it to around 15 units your first semester. I recommend 14 units so you can chillax. Chillaxing is very important.</p>

<p>Yeah, I didn't realize that foreign language classes are 5 units. That is a little bit too rigorous, I'll cut it down a few units.</p>

<p>From what I've heard, people regret taking a heavy load in their first semester, so I'd bring it down a bit in units. Take some seminars or decals. At Calso, they will explain more to you.</p>

<p>thats a pretty hard schedule
i'd recommend spreading out your haas pre reqs for the 4 semesters as even as possible.
and language classes are definitely a pain. most are everyday of the week and many are 8am classes. which are WAYYY harder than you think they are</p>
