    During or In

    "During/In the past semesters, I had overloaded my schedule."

    I think it's 'During', but I'm not quite sure.

    I would use "In". Make sure that your context requires you to use "I had ...". At first glance, "I have ..." or just "I" seem much more likely.

    I would also say "In previous semesters ...".
    Remember - correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing make posts much easier to read.

    Either will do. You don't need 'had'.
