YIKES. So I've currently forecasted 4 AP classes for next year (AB Calculus, lit, french, and bio). But I'm thinking about adding euro history to that mix as well.
I really just want to take advantage of getting college credit, and possibly skipping a average year of freshman courses.
Would this be too overbearing? I only had one AP class this year (APUSH), and it overwhelmed me like no other, but only because I was in marching band, and symphony that had after school rehearsals for about 3 hours, and had saturday rehearsals as well.
I am planning on discontinuing band, and these would be my remaining ec (not set in stone):
President of Rotary Club
National Honor Society/French National honor society
Hospital Volunteer (one weekday, 3-4 hours)
Hospice Volunteer (one weekday, 2 hours)
Preparing for college + Scholarship app/essays
Would this be too much? I currently have a 3.98 GPA, and my english teacher really recommends me to American Lit, which I heard was pretty much death.
You can stop reading here, but I have calculated credits earned at a potential college:
Bio-earn 12 credits if I get a 4 (3 classes worth of credit)
Literature- earn 10 credits if I get a 5 (2 classes worth of credit)
Calculus AB- earn 5 credits if I get a 3 (1 class worth of credit)
French- 5 credits if I get a 3 (1 elective credit)
Euro- 10 credits earned if I get a 5 (2 classes worth of credit)
So as you can see, I'd be saving big bucks if I did pretty well on them. I am interested in the Occupational Therapy field, so if I was to drop an AP class, which should it be?
