I’m sorry you’re classes aren’t going well.  I can sympathize with the quick pace of classes!  For the past 3 years in my graduate level program, we’ve met for 15-20 hours per week for just 1 class (and then there are several smaller classes).  Then I have to spend 4-6 hours per night studying (and then all day on weekends).  

It sounds like you’ll be done pretty soon with your classes, so hopefully you will get a break before the fall.  Oh, and as an FYI, if you’re worried about health insurance, because of the law changes, if you are under 26 years old, I don’t believe you need to be enrolled in school to remain on your parents insurance.

Good luck!

What’s your major now? 

I had to take 2 semesters of Organic Chemistry and 2 semesters of Physics in undergrad, and too be honest, they were brutal… and I took them over full semesters.  I took 2 semesters of Biochemistry over the summer (which was a senior level class), and it was hard but not as bad as O.Chem (at least for me).  Are you planning on taking the classes simultaneously over the summer or in different “mini-semesters?”  If there is anyway to switch those classes to fall/ spring semester, you may want to consider it (although with scheduling issues, that’s probably out of your control).
