12 credits bad?


Recommended Posts

Hi, I'm thinking of dropping one class this semester which would bring me down to 12 credits.  I had 12 credits since the start of junior year (this will be the 4th consecutive semester), and I was wondering if this is looked poorly upon.  I checked my degree and I will still graduate with 124 credits if I drop this course

I don't see any reason why this matters? The grad schools want to see that you have completed your degree and I don't think they typically care about the courseload. The exception is that if you have a light courseload and do poorly, it might be more concerning that if you did poorly only in the one semester where you had a larger than average courseload for some reason.
