analysis, abstract, linear algebra all in one semester.....

Bear in mind that all 3 refers to first course instro levels.

The thing is i'm going to be a senior this fall semester and I'm looking to apply to a graduate program. and the prerequisites are a year of analysis, a year of abstract algebra, and a year of linear algebra.

so i figure i take the first semester of each of these 3 course in the fall and the second semester in the spring.

also keep in mind that these 3 classes will be the ONLY classes i'll be taking. So I'll be a part time student actually.

Re: analysis, abstract, linear algebra all in one semester.....

I'm taking this as a question as to whether it's a good idea to do it, so I'm moving it to Studying Mathematics and Teaching Mathematics. Please let me know if I mis-understood you.

Anyway, I think it's absolutely do-able. If you had a full schedule, the work load might be a bit heavy, but since they are your only 3 classes, you should be fine.
I've taken (at least) 4 math classes in a semester 3 times. One of those semesters I was doing nothing but studying, but the other two I was fine. You will spend a lot of time studying with those 3 classes, but you will also have time to stay sane.

Yeah, I guess I forgot to ask the question.

Yes, if that's all you're doing, it should be fine. A bit heavy otherwise.
