Too many classes?

Postby salim123 » Mon Sep 14, 2015 12:13 pm

I'm currently taking 15 units by way of 5 classes at a new school (transferred). Is this too much? Not the units the number of classes I mean? I feel jumbled a little and am worried it's not gonna get any better. Anybody have any experience with this sized course load?

I don't see why you think this is weird at all.

Yeah this. I wouldn't want to take more than 3 exams per semester as a 2L/3L. It's harder to stay ahead of the curve when some of your classmates are studying for a single exam. And in any case, studying law is no way to spend your 2L/3L years.

2-3 exams and a few papers? Eh, probably okay.

5 classes isn't bad, but 5 exams sounds terrible. Mix in some easy seminars where you only have to write 12 page papers. If your school has course reviews, it shouldn't be very difficult to sift through those and find them.
