Small Concern with my Fall Schedule

ReidIsLovelyReidIsLovely 39 replies14 threads Junior Member
Hello, It has been a while since I've been on this website and a lot has happened in these couple of months.

I am a CC student majoring in Computer Science.

My fall schedule looks like this :
Calc 2
Physics 101
English 103
And two one unit for fun type of courses (Weightlifting and Swimming if it matters at all)

My question is would admissions officers care at all if I decided to choose two fun classes rather than another Major prep course?

Just for reference, I am applying to UCI,UCSD,UCR,UCSC,CSULB.CSULA,SFSU, and CSUF this upcoming Fall.

Thank you.

    Yes, the rigor of the schedule you choose is usually a factor considered in admissions. Admissions staff is looking for students who will be able to succeed in the rigorous world of their schools. I’m relatively certain that few undergraduate programs would have 2 Phys Ed classes as part of the expected course of study. Unless you’re planning to be a Phys Ed education major, of course.

    I already have 18 units, 3 are major required classes. I think I should be okay right?
