ABA defines each full time semester as 15 credits/units. Most schools will not accept more than 30 units (2 full time 15 unit semesters). Some will take more. Very few take 15 or less.
Why do you hate your school?

oh wow. New York City to Lansing - I completely understand why you are homesick. I will be in the same boat as you very soon. Good luck on transferring, If not after your first semester, continue aiming for those top grades and get out after your second semester. Good luck.

the school itself is actually really nice and people are nice..
i guess if you go in like.."im gonna be here for the next 2-3 years" thats one thing..
