O-Chem: short vs. long program

Sorry about the registration question (I checked the memories and the only mention of O-Chem was for the summer), but I'm trying to decide whether to take the short program of O-chem (223, 224) or the long program (237,238,239). I'm finishing up my first year of general chem (162, yay) right now, and I really don't like it. I want to major in ecological and evolutionary biology, so I don't imagine I'd need THAT much chemistry (I don't want to do biochem or molecular biology). I was planning on taking the 2-class program, but is it actually less info or is it just 3 quarters worth of material squeezed into 2 classes? Most of my friends are taking the long program even though they hate chemistry, so I'm not sure if it would be worth it or not. I don't know which profs are teaching either of them, it doesn't say.

Any advice?

Edit: Just to clarify, I want to start in the fall, not the summer. ^^; I can't be available for a large chunk of this summer so I'm not taking any classes.
