I don't know personally, but if the CHEM14 series is a part of your major requirements, it may make sense for you to ask to meet with your departmental advisor for a half-hour, as they should have a good sense of what works better for students and what doesn't. Just my $.02
You don't have to take 14B and 14BL together! I know plenty of people who are taking them different quarters apart. If you're deciding between either 14B/14BL or 14C/14BL I would say 14B/14BL since they're similar topics that would correspond with each other better than two different aspects of chemistry
I have always been advised by both peers and my department counselor not to take B and BL at the same time. BL is known for being pretty difficult and from what I understand, it depends on concepts which are taught in B, which can be a little tricky if you're figuring them out at the same time that you're applying them in BL. It is definitely possible to take them at the same time, but unless you have some sort of special circumstance I would avoid it.
