Hi guys, a long story short, when I first registered for my senior year class schedule, I had signed up for 5 AP classes (Calc, Human Geo, Comp Gov, Lit and Stat), however (though I'm not entirely sure of this yet), it would appear that schedule conflicts might potentially bar me from taking more than 3-4. Would this drop in number of APs significantly hurt my chances when applying? I've taken 5 APs to date and have gotten 5s on all the exams (my school offers somewhere in the neighborhood of 25-30 APs overall).
Also, if worse comes to worst and I'm stuck with only 3-4 APs, would it make any difference if my counselor mentioned in his recommendation that I had attempted to take more AP classes, but was prevented from doing so by schedule conflicts that I had no control over?
