    yeah 16 credit hours is plenty for me, but that's nothing but upper level physics and materials classes.

    16 was good but this next semester fall, it will be all fire classes (love those as well) so I think I can handle 21. Plus that will make me done with my fire classes!

    Yeah, and if I wanted to graduate in 2 more years (making that 5 total for a bachelors) I would have to average 18 per semester:eek:. Not going to happen lol.

    Then again around 5 years is the average at New Mexico Tech.

    just graduated a few weeks back from Philadelphia University with a BS in accounting with a 3.7 cum gpa...getting ready to start CPA classes up next week and then will be taking the tests after each part....but im trying to get into law enforcement (i hear tomorrow from the PA state police) and im going to DC to sit for the US capital police test. Trying to get a law enforcement backgorund for a few years then switch into the FBI....with a accounting and police background it should be easy to get in.

    took psych 101 (freshman class) this past semester just cas i had an extra elective to fill and needed a GPA booster. Pretty interesting stuff. My gf is a psych major at Drexel and in her 3rd year with it....absolutley loves it.

    good luck!!!

    Anyone have that problem?

    Live and learn!
