I have a decision to make, and I'm having trouble making it.

I am currently enrolled in 5 classes for the fall semester, and I need to drop one of them (18 credit hours is a biiit more than I feel capable of handling.)

My options:

Spanish 101 : Tues / Thurs - 9AM - 10:50 AM

Cultural Anthropology : Tues / Thurs 12:30 PM - 1:45 PM

Comprehensive Databases: ONLINE

Intro to Writing : Thurs 2 PM - 4:45 PM

Basic Algebra: ONLINE

The two I'm trying to decide between are Spanish and Anthro. Both satisfy core education requirements for my major, so I will have to take them eventually. The other classes either satisfy requirements for my major, or I am otherwise required to take them.

I took 4 years of Spanish in high school (2 years under an American, 2 years under a Spaniard), so that class -should- be easy review. I've had the Anthropology professor before, she's very laid back and entertaining, but she makes you work for the grade. So do I take the easy A, or the class I'm 99% sure I'll enjoy, but will be harder?

Help me, LiveJournal-land!

P.S. - I got a phone call from the college's writing center; I've been offered a job as a peer tutor for the fall semester. I start at the end of August. :D

I'd say drop the Spanish and, since it sounds like you can probably get away with it, see if you can take some sort of proficiency to get out of the requirement.

Is it possible for you to CLEP out of Spanish? If not, that would be the one I would drop. Rote memorization takes too much time from other subjects.

Proficiency test for Spanish and drop it.

Sounds like Anthro will keep your interest better which you will need to keep moving forward with a heavy load.

How do you feel about the other classes you're taking in the fall semester? If you've got some serious challenges in there, it might be better to go with the easy A of Spanish. If you know there are some challenges coming to you a semester or two down the line, save it until you'll need it. (All this is assuming you can't proficiency out of Spanish entirely, as others have suggested).

I'm with the proficiency out of Spanish club.
