We are converting from the quarter system to semesters in the fall of 98
I would very much appreciate information on the following.
Credit number for lecture only classes:  3    or    4
Credit number of lecture and lab classes:  3   or   4    or   5
In general the number of lecture sessions and lab sections per week_____
How long is a lecture session ______min
How long is a lab session ________min
Are meeting session across the university all the same time duration?

The issue is a change from the 50 min meeting times to a 75 min block for
Tuesdays and Thursdays and 65 min block for M, W, and F.

If you have the time I would be interested in the following
Credits to graduate
Credits in the Biology major
Credits in the Biology minor( if you have one)
Number of courses/credits required from Biology 
Number of courses/credits required outside of Biology
Number of weeks in a semester

I would very much appreciate any imput on these matters.
Please return response via personal e-mail (save bandwidth) to:

Since most of the rest of the US 28k out of 33k institutions are on 
semesters I apologize if this seems silly.  In Minnesota all the state 
institutions are on quarter so we don't have any handy models.

Thanks in Advance
