I will probably only be able to take three APs next year, and I'm really disappointed about it. Freshmen year I was in all college prep classes, sophomore year was all accelerated classes, and junior year I'm in all accelerated classes, plus an AP class.
Next year my guidance counselor is pressuring me to take pre calc, so it looks like I'll have to drop AP stats- either that, or...I don't know. It could be any of my other classes- including my honors electives, AP humaities....
Now that I think about it, I just don't want to give up any of my classes for this stupid pre calc- I'm just not interested. The only one I don't mind giving up is AP Stats, but that would have been my fourth AP, and I want to show colleges how much I've improved since my early high school career.
Sorry for rambling so much. But will 3 AP classes instead of 4 look bad for semi competitive colleges (think Lake Forest level)? Would it be better to keep the AP Stats and pre calc, but drop an honors elective I'm actually interested in?
