SLS 2L - help with choosing classes

This is a question specifically for any Stanford 2 or 3Ls out there, although anyone's welcome to chime in, of course.

I'm a transfer, and I'm still figuring out what to take this quarter. I'm interested in corporate/transactional law, so I know I want to take corporations, bankruptcy and tax at some point. Right now, I'm signed up for corporations with Daines, who I heard was really tough.

I'm guessing corporations, tax and bankruptcy all in one quarter would be overkill, right? I'm thinking I'll take corporations, and then either tax (Bankman) or bankruptcy (Cole). To help me decide which, any thoughts on the classes (either at Stanford or elsewhere) or the professors are very appreciated! :P

corporations isn't really that much work. it's a bit of reading and side assignments but the exam is mostly multiple choice and there are tons of good outline online.

I would take the three next quarter because winter quarter has some really good classes. You could always wait till spring to take corporations if you're afraid of the work. I'd take capital markets with grundfest too if he's teaching.

Thanks for the advice Legends. I was also wondering, how many courses do you usually take a quarter - 3 or 4? I've been afraid to ask, because I don't want to look lazy...
