Is this too heavy a course load to take in the spring of my freshman year? Calculus 3 - 4 credits Honors Physics 3 - 5 credits General Chemistry 2 - 4 credits Intro to Diff. Equations - 4 credits Some easy gened I have to take - 3 credits That's a total of 20 credits. Physics 3 covers waves and the calc course is multi-variable stuff. I'm required to take the gened so I can't drop that.
