My School Plan

Okay, so I am trying to get more organized. And part of that is figuring out where I’m at in school, and figuring out where I need to be and how long it will take me. Today I worked out several plans, juggling various possible courseloads. If I take 6 (4 hours each) classes per quarter, I could be out in two years. Umm, no. That’s insane.

If I take 5 classes each quarter, I’ll be out in two and a half. Four classes per quarter? Three years. So I’m probably going to shoot for 5 classes a quarter, and then my last two quarters I can do only 4 classes. Anyway, here is the basics of what I have done, what I don’t have done, and what I still have to do…

I transferred in 47 credit hours. That’s not great, considering I had a lot more than that, but hey, it’s better than starting at the beginning. I transferred in:

-Composition I
-Composition II (counts as an elective)
-General Psychology (elective)
-General Sociology (elective)
-Environmental Science (elective)
-Applied Math With Stats
-US History to 1877
-Principles of Communication (speech)
-Intro to Fine Arts (art history)
-Introduction to Philosophy
– Ethics
So see? I knocked out about 3 semesters of classes, or, almost a full year.

Currently, I’m taking a light load (ha! I study non-stop!).

Now, to survive the semester!
