Taking 13 or 15 credits 1st semester 2L

Postby BK88 » Thu Sep 04, 2014 5:56 pm

Hey All,
I'm starting my 2L at a second tier school, top 15% with a decent scholarship. Got some play from OCI but nothing crazy. For fall i'm interning for 16 hours a week with the DA and taking Crim Pro, Corporations, required once a week crim seminar and a journal. All that adds up to 15 credits. I'm debating doing a real estate transactions course as well to bump the total up to 15 credits. Crim is my main interest, real estate is my backup. I'm debating if its too much to take the real estate class.

thoughts?

I'm doing 15 but that includes 2 hours of RA and a 1 hour short course with no exam. I wouldn't do 4 exams this semester if I could avoid it.
