21

They used to let you W as many classes as you wanted. I'd take a bunch, see which ones I was failing, and drop the rest. Normally ended the semester with 8hrs

Probably the hardest thing I ever did was a Intersession class. 3 weeks of 5 hours a day classes was tough, but I made an A.

I took 21 to get out my last semester...and it worked out really well because that was the semester Katrina hit. None of my classes really hit their stride until after Thanksgiving and by then we were pretty much done.

Took 18 multiple times and 19 once. I graduated LSU with 176 hours in 4 years, but had a bunch from Spring Testing

I did not do college correctly

If you have to have it to transfer that sucks.

I normally started the semester with 18 hours and whichever class seemed like it sucked or the teacher blew arse I'd just drop it

Its tough, but kinda nice because you have to stay focused on it. You literally cant do anything else.

18 hours and I worked two part time jobs totaling about 35 hours a week.

It wasn't terrible. Having the jobs actually kept me focused on the academics because I had to use my time wisely. I ended up with something over a 3.5 that semester.

15 was the most I ever took. I worked a full time job also while in school. Not gonna get into the least hours I've taken in 1 semester

baseball just wouldn't allow me to take anymore than 15.

4+ hours of practice a day sucked

Just do what you think you can handle.

So glad I'm almost done with school. It's been such a bitch. It took me a long time to find what I wanted to do. Wasted a lot of hours and $$$

Gonna finish this semester then have 2 blowoff classes and one avg class and I'm out

You will say "man, college life was easy. Why was I so ready to get out" soon
