Hi, which type of classes (AP vs. College) look for favorable to colleges?
My sister's argument: College classes look better because they show I know how college classes are like
My AP bio teacher's argument: APs because they're harder.
My thoughts: College classes are way easier to pass and get an A in in contrast to getting a 5 on the AP exam. Some college classes even offer more credit than the AP equivalent and they only last for a fraction of the school year. For example, I'm debating between taking US History at the local community college or at school via AP. The equivalent of US History at the local college is Hist 11 and Hist 12, 3 units each. Therefore, if I take it at the college, I will get 6 units in total, while if I get a 5 on the AP exam, I will only get 5 units. Furthermore, I am really bad at timed essays, so getting a 5 on the AP US Hist exam will be VERY hard for me.
So, what are your thoughts on this subject? AP or college classes?
PS. I'm sorry if someone already made a thread on this. If this is so, please link me there =D.
