I'm going to be a first year grad student in the Fall. What is a typical course load in grad school? I will be leading recitation for 2 hours a week, plus 2-3 hours of "office" hours. I know most people take 12-15 or so hours during underdrad, but this seems like too many for grad school. I was planning on taking 3 classes (Algebra I, Intro to Geometry and Topology I, an Advanced Linear Algebra). I know this isn't too hard, but is it too easy? I mean, for the grad students (and former gradstudents or future grad students) how many classes did you typically take each semester?
