I had a few questions on what courses to take because I am an accepted candidate currently in my first year in college. So if we validate a GE must we must replace with another GE of sort? Or can we just take a class that corresponds to our major? If we validate Calc 1, do we have to take a new sequence? Reading the RedBook for 2018 says we do. Is it in our best interest not to validate Calc 1 to take an easier course load? (not an engineering major) Currently picking my classes for my 3rd quarter. Should I take classes in an attempt to validate or just fun classes? Thank you.
