I'm going to be dropping a course and I'm only going to take 4 courses per semester. 5 courses is too much for me. I can do it, but it's very stressful. Semester 1: 5 courses Semester 2: 4 courses (going to drop a course tomorrow) Semester 3: 4 courses Semester 4: 4 courses Semester 5: 4 courses Semester 6: 4 courses Semester 7: 4 courses Semester 8: 4 courses At the end of semester 8, I will have 6 required courses from my degree to complete and 4 liberals. I guess I could do the following: Semester 9: 3 courses 2 liberals Semester 10: 3 courses 2 liberals Is this kind of stupid? I'll need to take an additional year to finish my degree. How much time is needed for a liberal? Is 1 liberal equivalent to 1 course in calculus or physics?
