  2. Yes in general you can take them. They don't look bad to your parents, likely nor to your future employer. Grad/professional schools will question why you took them, but if the course seems sensible or if it's only one fluff course in a tough semester it should be fine. Just don't do badly on it.

  3. No. Why would it matter? I'm in 4th year and taking a few 3rd year courses. I cannot take some 4th year courses because of scheduling conflicts and because I don't have the prerequisites. Honestly, it doesn't matter.

  4. No you can take whatever you want. I've taken first, second, and third year courses in my fourth year and was admitted to law school.

  5. I took all different levels of classes in all different years and now I'm a grad student in Engineering. All that matters is that you have good marks, good references, and have taken some rigorous courses (doesn't matter when you took them).
