    To FBItomboy 007: I'm proud to say I go to a public school, and I can't stand it when kids who go to private schools claim to have "superior" educations. At least I can spell "infinitely." That's something I learned in school, but I guess you wouldn't know because you're classes are so much "harder."

    By quickly adding up all of the juniors who attained national AP Scholar according to the collegeboard data, I came to a total of almost 2000.

    The highest concentrations of AP scholars can be found in California, Florida, Massachusetts, and Texas it seems.

    No need to be such a prick about it though. I go to a public school and agree with you too, but there's no need to be insulting him/her for it. FBI was just making a comment, I'm pretty sure, and he/she is right about taking everything in context.

    Also, it would appear that while you can spell "infinitely," you cannot spell "your."

    To the poster earlier, you can put them on college applications if you want, but I doubt it's worth much. I received my AP award today.

    So it's true that you do NOT have to be a State AP Scholar to become a National AP Scholar?

    State is more difficult than National. National is merely 8 with a score of 4+ and an average of 4 on all taken, while State is the highest # of exams with >3 in your state, then the highest average as a tiebreaker.

    do you think its important to get the national ap scholar title?
    im a sophomore and ive already taken 1 ap exam in my freshman year.
    im planning to take 2-4 this year and obviously based on that, take another few to get my 8 ap exams.
    it seems stressful and i dont know if i can handle it.
    i mean is there a difference between taking 8 ap exams and 6?
    should i go for the 8?
