"Strength Training" or "Law and Society" Senior Year
Ok, so here is the situation. I am currently a junior in high school and I am creating my schedule for my senior year. Because I have an internship at a court house for half the day for every day that school year, I will only have 4 classes my senior year. I am planning on taking English 101, Statistics 101, and AP Human Geography for three of them. I am also planning on taking AP micro economics online. Now I have only one block to fill but the options I have for that block are not good. I can either choose between a strength training class and a merit/unweighted law class that was described as "The easiest class you will take in High School". Although I do run track and plan to run in college, if I were to enroll in the Strength Training Class instead of the Law Class, how would that affect my application, especially because I do want to pursue a career in law. The only reason why I do not want to take the law class is because I am worried that it will be too boring and I will hate it.
With regards to academics, I am not the best student but I am also not a bad student. I scored a 1380 on my first SAT without much studying (retaking in June) and excluding AB Calculus which I received a C in, I have gotten an A in every single course I've taken (AP US History, AP Biology, AP Political Science, AP Psychology, etc.).
The main school which I would wish to get into is William and Mary.
