Is it too much?
(#)- Are credits
I'm taking 6 classes. UNIV100(intro to university life)(1), Precalc (already took to HS)(3), Philosophy (3), Athropology (3), English 101(3), and I'm part of a FIRE Program so I'm taking a class which is also 3 credits. So a I have a total of 16. Multiplied by 3 means I'm looking at 39 hours of work per week.
I'm not afraid to work hard. I want to know if any anyone else has ever had a heavy course load and how did you handle it?
I'm majoring in Biochemistry if that helps.

I did 18 credits and a 20 hour part time job for my freshman semester.
It is doable but you have to be very careful with your time and be very good at prioritizing, if you happen to need a job it might help a lot if the job is one that allows you to read or do some homework while working.
One thing for sure, the level of work required is very much institution dependent, thus 18 credits at a tier-1 university will be very different from a tier-4 uni.0
