What bothers me is will the top schools (hope to get into one of them) allow such stunts? I mean, assuming I'm capable to get my degree in three semesters or hopefully less, will I be allowed to do so by people who are responsible for all kinds of bureaucracy in schools? How did you get around this, Steve? Or is it only my imagination and people really don't care as long as I have good grades?
Generally speaking they'll allow you to take a few more credits than normal the first semester, and up it if you do really well.
But really, this is just a matter of convincing people. I completed my school's Master's Curriculum when I was 19...most people will let you do whatever you want if they think you're smart.
