I plan on applying to an undergraduate business school, such as Boston College and Wharton. Until recently, I had planned on taking AP Statistics. I do well in math, but I dislike it- it is the only high school class where I consistently get Bs. I heard that AP Stats is much different than the Algebra/Calculus path that most of high school math follows, and that English/Social Science type of people are often good at it.
However, the teacher whom I really really like is leaving our high school to teach stats elsewhere. The new teacher is the man who was my freshman Honor Algebra 2 teacher, and I really dislike his teaching style - he is incredibly boring, and I have ADD for one thing (and no longer use drugs for it).
I know Statistics has a very practical business application, but Wharton emphasizes a lot of mathematics, "including Calculus". And although I dislike Calculus (I am in AP Calc AB, and I have a mid-range B), isn't it usually more impressive on a Senior Transcript? I know A LOT of seniors take STATS, but few take second year calc.
I'm torn. What class should I take, considering that I seek admittance to highly-selective business programs?
