I am an early college student in my junior year and this spring I am taking 14 credit hours, and I have just way too much free time. I have Composition 2, US history 2, Ethics, and Calculus 2. Next semester I am planning this schedule: Calculus 3 - 5 credits Differential Equations - 4 credits Physics/w Calc 1 - 3 credits Physics/w Calc 1 lab -1 credit Intro to Economics 1 - 3 credits Art Appreciation - 3 credits For a total of 19! My mother is skeptical that I can handle this, but I don't think it is bad as it looks. I love math and I have read all the way through my calculus book and have got most of it down pat. I have already taken a good physics course while I was still attending my high school so I am not worried about the Phy/w calc class. Plus the only pre rec for that class is calc 1 at my school, so it won't be anything crazy advanced. Three of the 19 credits are in art appreciation which is a cake walk, and I am only taking it because the honors college wants me too. Also, I am a physics major, well technically not because as an early college student I can't officially declare, and the schedules I have seen that most physics majors take seem much more daunting than this. I have seen kids taking a combo of mechanics, thermodynamics, and fluid dynamics all at once. If they can do that I can take calc 3, physics 1, and differential eq. and be fine. The classes that are the most difficult for me have always been the classes I don’t like. For example I hate the Comp 2 and US history classes that I am in with a passion. They give a mind-numbing amount of busy work and then test me on my ability to regurgitate the facts and opinions of others that they forced down my throat! I actually see the schedule I wrote up above and drool! I will actually be taking classes I am interested in, and if I am interested in something I don’t see it as work when I have to learn it and practice it. Anyway what do you guys think? Is this a doable schedule? Unless Differential Equations is just this otherworldly monster of a math class that I could never imagine, I think this is very doable.
