For the record, I'm pretty sure you cannot do that in 1L spring (although I'm absolutely sure you should not want to)
I'm currently registered for two courses, in fact I didn't even realize I was in both of them until I got an email today (the other course was a by-application course that I never realized I had actually gotten into). I'm not planning on doing it (In fact I just removed the other class so I wasn't holding up the wait-list), but it seems like it would be a weird way of accumulating more grades than your classmates, which is why I asked if it was even possible.
"More" isn't helpful unless you were to happen to get Hs in both classes. (Which would be less likely since you'd have a bigger credit load.)
It's also by credit, so you wouldn't have any more than someone taking a 4 credit class (also not advisable). Also, taking more credits 1L year does not mean you can take less credits next two years because those requirements are independent of 1L. As people have advised on this board before... take a 2 credit seminar! Usually less work during the semester because it's less credits than everything else. If you do not have an exam that means you have to study for less exams than your peers that have courses with exams. If there is a 4 credit course you are interested in, you have four more semesters to do so. Save it for then!
