The 13 credits in one term, were any of them UL?

Also, can you advise a strategy to complete those many credits in one term?

He did a bunch of UL. His experience is not the norm UMPI will tell you. When I enrolled last August, I was told 10 courses was the most anyone had completed in 1 term at that time. ashkir has a lot of experience that went towards those classes. So a lot of the material was a review for him. His original plan was for 3-4 terms, but he'll be done in 2.  
ss20ts is right. I did all of the Upper Levels for the Leadership degree except for 3. This means I did 6 upper levels, 7 lower levels. (I transferred in an upper level from Sophia, Bus Law comes in as a 300 level). 

My experience is definitely not the norm. I am in the hospital a lot, chemo, on bedrest, and often don't have anything to do and I can barely sleep due to insomnia from my medicine. So I do school to try and accomplish something. In addition, as ss20ts said I have a ton of experience. I am one of the first people in the United States to get a full CLM DocuSign License, I hold training by Ritz Carlton in leadership, and I've worked with the federal government, courts, and fortune 500s in my career as a high-level consultant for the last six years. I'm only 31, and I started my first job at 25 (by pure luck and determination), I am very experienced in my field. 

A lot of the upper levels cover Six Sigma, Lean Manufacturing, Kaizen, Deadly Waste, Human Potential concepts, etc. These are a cake walk to me. I can do SWOTs, Red Tags, Lean Tags, SMARTs in my sleep. My CEO drills the "GEMBA" lifestyle into us. I've gone to a many seminars/lectures over the last 6 years about these topics. So when I see them I honestly skip them. 

Also a tip for multiple choice / personalized classes: Guess non-confident on all your answers for about 5 sets. This lets you get a lot of really amazing explanations of why you were wrong, and the questions rotate and it lets you see the entire quiz bank with all the explanations. The explanations paraphrase the lesson in a more easily relatable message. 

So I broke the record?
