Hi I was just wondering if it is a good idea to tackle Physics 140/141 with Chem 210/211 in the same semester along with only 1 more class. Also is it a good idea to take 215/216 in the spring term to make orgo 1 and 2 consecutive and if so which orgo 2 teacher is known to teach fairly well in the spring?
While you would only be taking 3 classes, Orgo + Physics is a challenging combination. I would recommend taking Physics 135/136 if you’re not required to take Physics 140/141 for your major. 135 does not require calculus and is usually more accessible to premed students. If you switch to Physics 135, I think that your schedule would be manageable but still a fair amount of work. Another option is to push off Physics until next year and take your challenging courses one at a time.
I think that taking Orgo2 spring term is a good idea. The only thing to remember is that 216 will require two 2 hour labs per week during spring term, and for this reason a lot of students opt to just take 215 spring term and take 216 in the fall. I’d say that all the Orgo2 professors do a good job of teaching the course material, so you can just pick the one that works best for your schedule. Please drop into advising hours if you have any other questions.
