Summer courses: Reasonable enough? - December 2nd 2010, 06:34 PM

I will be graduating high school on the first of June. Very soon after that I'm going to be moving in with my brother and sister-in-law so I can live with them while I go to college. (I'm allowing the next 6-7 months for gradual acclimation to their house. We'll be moving my furniture, clothes, books, etc. over there bit by bit until I finally move in.)

I'm planning on taking two classes at the college during summer intersession (a two-month period before Fall Semester starts) so I can get an idea for what the college is like, whether I'm going to enjoy the classes I plan on taking later (because if not, I need to consider my options as far as majors, etc.), and to get a couple prerequisites/gen ed requirements out of the way.

The courses are more concentrated than the regular full-semester courses are, so it wouldn't be a tiny workload. However, I am accustomed to year-round school and to devoting large chunks of time to only one or two subjects (especially math). I even seem to do better when that's the case.

So to college students, especially those of you that have done something similar to this, what do you think of this schedule? Do you think it's reasonable for someone just coming out of high school?

College Algebra & Trigonometry: Mon, Tue, Wed, Thu - 7 to 1015AM
Introductory Chemistry: Mon & Wed - 1130AM to 0320PM

I'm not sure if this will be the exact schedule as registration for this summer isn't open yet. But that's what it has looked like in previous summers. There are also typically evening/night classes available, which are an option if I don't want to wake up so early, or if I want to spread the classes out a little more.

Any input would be greatly appreciated.
