My school offers quite a few APs and I was wondering what I should take. Here is the stats:
Offered (and excluding languages I haven't taken): Calc AB & BC, Stat, Bio, Chem, Physics (One Class for Both Exams), Environmental, English Literature, English Language, Spanish Lit, Spanish Lang, Euro History, US History, US Gov, Comparative Gov, Psych, and Music Theory.
My (Current) Schedule for Junior Year:
AP Calc AB (Required Math)
AP Calc BC (Taking both for BC exam is required)
AP Environmental (My Required Science)
AP English Language (My Required English)
AP US History (My Required Humanity/Social Studies)
AP US Government
AP European History
Alright. My school requires anyone taking calculus to take both classes (AB and BC) and count it for two credits. For Biology and Chemistry, I have to take a paired up "Research Methods" class, which is only Honors (not AP) credit. I think that AP US Government would fit with APUSH, but I'm not sure. Most of my APs are cemented in except for Gov. Should I take it out? Also, I am unsure of Euro History. If I get both APUSH and APEH, wouldn't I get overloaded? What should I switch it out with?
I plan to apply to Duke as first choice, then Ivies, and then UNC. I have stellar grades (100% on PreCalc final! WOOT!). I plan to be a Bio/Math major in college.
