Part of the G2G application process is to have your degree map completed and signed by the ROTC Commandant (an LTC or COL). Your degree map is only broken down into 6 semesters, 2 spring, 2 fall, and 2 summer. 1 of your summer sessions you cannot take classes because that is when you will go to "summer camp". the other summer you will only be able to take classes that are offered during the summer (depending on the school this is limited). The other 4 semesters you CANNOT exceed 18 credit hours per semester. That's a total of 72 hours, plus maybe another 6-8 hours of summer classes. So, with a full workload you would still only have 78-80 hours, well short of the 120 needed to graduate. That's why they say you should be "an academic junior".
LDAC is less than 30 days so depending on when a cadet plans on attending LDAC he/she can take summer courses their Junior year as long as it does not interfere with camp.
The G2G ADO option you must graduate in the specified time frame so that means no Summer classes following your Sr year because you will commission in the spring.
take over 18 hrs, it's as simple as getting approval from your academic advisor. There are plenty of opportunties for 8 week classes, online and evening/ night classes so if you are a ADO Cadet and school is your life and money is not the issue, go for it if you can handle the load.
As for ROTC Course load, my school does 1 lecture and 1 lab a semester which is 2 classes a total of 4 credits.
My advice would be grind it out and submit a packet when you are solid. The lighter the course load the better. I held out a year and I have so much free time at 12 hrs a semester
