Applying beyond credit limit at University; any advice steve?
I have read all about the subject on this matter on your blog; mainly on do it now and about david the guy who graduated from college in 2 semesters. The problem is unlike you and david I don't have a fantastic record behind me in high school and I have never achieved any exceptional grades mostly because I was always prone to coasting through on my natural intellect. I'm not saying I'm going to try and get a degree in 3 semesters as that is punching above my own weight class but I do want to try and get it eat up alot of it within the next year. The problem is as I've said I can't really refer to my previous records and where I come from we don't have AP classes so I never had any chance to take any in high school. Of course this is not going to stop me from trying! I will eventually get what I want but the fact that I'm repeating a year and have a poor attendance record won't help my case at all. I'm definitely going to try and get some testimonials from teachers i had previously so that they can verify that I'm an above average student and I can do it.
Aside from any friendly tips you might have at convincing the university to give me an opportunity I would like to make a rather offensive request. Ok...Uh I would like proof of your feat aside from your word on this blog by private e-mail so i can use it as a case in point to show the university that it is possible. Don't get me wrong i'm not doubting you did it! But i'm trying to anticipate any counter-arguements they might make if I pointed to you as an example of this feat.
Also I would like a copy of the article on david the guy who graduated in two semesters. I know this is asking a lot...and I would've rather emailed you on the subject but this will have to do. Sorry if this request is out of the question and keep up the good work!

I would suggest that you start where you are first.
That is, start by taking 4 or 5 classes next semester and then go in there and own the crap out of them. Do whatever it takes to get straight A's. Then, the next semester work your way up to like 6 or 7 classes, go in and own them. Also, take classes during both summer sessions.
If you get straight A's and even a handful of B's, you'll be in a much better position working yourself gradually to that point than you will be to try and convince the college to let you take more classes when you have clearly demonstrated that you might not be capable of that yet.
"Show me the money" is the expression that comes to mind here. That is, start doing well in school, and THEN raise the stakes.
