Is 7 AP Classes total enough?
My school offers 11 AP classes, however I am planning on taking 7. The ones I will not be taking are AP French (no time in schedule, as I need art credit to graduate), AP Bio (not interested in it, taking regular physics instead), AP Calc BC (I will be in Calc AB my senior year, so I cant really take it), and AP USH (if Im being totally honest, all 3 apush teachers at my school are not good and no one comes out this class with a good grade or enjoying it).
So, will 7 be enough AP courses to get into a selective college (something like USC, NYU, Berkeley)?
If its not enough, should I take AP USH as well, even though I honestly have not heard one good thing about the class? (If I do decide to take it I would have 4 AP's junior year, including AP Chem which seems like a very heavy course load with a lot of homework)
