My intuition (obtained by hanging out in this forum) tells me most medical schools would since it is English. But do not take science prereqs there. Also, you need to show your academic strength by taking a full load of classes in a reputable college (ether public or private).
Generally, in terms of preferences,
classes taken at your home institute/college > local/other 4-year state college taken as a high schooler > community college taken as a high schooler > AP credits.
The last one, AP, is almost worthless, except for building your academic strength to enable you to get through the freshmen weedout classes.
BTW, be careful that SOME state schools may prohibit you from taking the introductory science courses if you have AP credits. Therefore, I believe BRM once suggested you take the AP classes but do not take the AP exams. This is esp. true for AP Physics C, unless you are going to take advanced physics classes from the physics department in college. Most premeds tend to think it is not necessary to take any advanced physics, while many high schoolers think they will. This is because, after all, the physics class at the AP level is one of the most interesting science classes for most students with a science aptitude.
But the dilemma is 1) You need many AP credits with good grades in order to get into a "good" college. 2) Some high school AP course teachers may be very unhappy if you do not take AP exams, and possibly give you a poor grade (then you can not apply to a "good" college. Some AP teachers even use AP exams as their final exams. Some high school administrators may judge their teachers by the average AP scores of the students they teach. What a mess-up policy which may potentially screw up premeds. College Board should help this out, since it should have the financial resources to do this.
