Of course. You're likely to get median pwned. I recommend two lecture classes, two seminars.

Spread dat werkload around. I like it when my workload is one paper due before finals, a bullshit final, a real final, and a paper due after finals.

If you're already below top 15%, just take the classes and stop worrying. If you're at the top, and gunning to make the harder rank changes, take easy classes
