    try not to overload. failing is a possible sign of overload. try to do as much as you can do well and not more.

    Less classes so you have more time to study.

    Are you attending summer sessions? You could always take 1 fewer class during the fall and spring semesters and then make those 2 up in the summer session. However, is there really a rush? I think as people have already suggested, take as many classes as you can, and do not overwork yourself, be realistic.
