School is great so far. I'm really enjoying chemistry. I'm sure the fact that I'm prepared for each class helps. I find myself hoping that we'll get points for every little thing. I'm looking forward to homework, tests, and quizzes just so that I can rack up points. It's strange. I never viewed school like this before. It's fun!
Anyway, they just posted the schedule for next quarter. I'm hoping I can get them to make an exemption for me to take 4 classes. I'm pretty sure I can take Oral Communications and Comp II without a problem. Not sure if they'll allow Chem II and Genetics (even though genetics doesn't have a lab).
For those who don't know, my school has 4 quarters per year instead of semesters. However, they all have an online component which allows them us to get a full semester of credit for a quarter class. It's sweet, but very fast paced. You cannot afford to fall behind, hence, the 9 cr hr limit per semester.
I also found out today that the school is doing so well that they are going to build a few more buildings on campus this year... pretty impressive in a recession. My chem prof said bonuses last December were 18% of salary. Nice.
I love school!
