Hi! 
Let’s address your winter schedule first. This one looks pretty balanced. Biochemistry + Physics is a good combination that will definitely keep you busy, however, it is doable with good time management. The 2 labs will take up some time but shouldn’t be too bad. Remember you can always push off one of the labs if you think they will end up taking too much time out of your week. Neither are too difficult but they do take around 6 hours of actual class time so that is something to think about. 
 
I would recommend that you alter your fall semester. While I think that CHEM 230 and BIO 225 are good combinations, but adding on Physics 135/6 might be too much. Usually we recommend that you take at max 2 STEM classes (not including labs). Thus I would recommend pushing Physics 135 to the Winter and Physics 235 to either Spring or Fall. Let us know if you have any other questions. Good luck!
