College schedule help

I need to take 15 units next semester and i have a choice

a) i can take all my classes on tuesday/thursday and have 5 days off per week

b) spread it over mon-thurs and only have 3 days off


only pros and cons i can think of are

a) more days off means i can work more
but it will be really long school days

b) less time for work

Option A was a pain in the butt. Everyday I had to drive up to the school and then back. By the time tuesday came, I forgot what I needed to do for wednesday. Everynight was cut short because I had class in the morning. I had 2 different book bags for each set of classes (MWF/T&TH). Sometimes my classes would be canceled and I drove all that way for nothing.

Early monday classes suck.

Option B FTW.

If you are well disciplined then A is a good option. BUT....

Most people are not and option B makes more sense. You have classes spread out and won't everything due at the same time.
