How many AP classes should I take senior year? + Loss of motivation
Right now, I'm a junior taking 4 AP classes (APUSH, Physics, Stats and Lang), and while I was able to get all A's last semester I'm already off to a real rough start this semester (except with the 3 normal classes I'm taking which are a breeze), with only one class (Stats) I'm really likely to get an A in and the other three classes I could get an A in if I studied my butt off, which I honestly don't really feel like doing at this point. I'm most likely eligible for National Merit, which can net me $30k+ right out of the gate at colleges I can easily admit too, so what's the point in making all A's? I have a 3.96 unweighted GPA currently and I don't think it would kill me to slack off a little as long as I don't get a C and do real well on the AP exams so I can get that sweet sweet college credit. Work smart, not hard. What do you guys think?
These are the 7 AP classes I'm thinking of taking. Feel free to tell me if I need to drop some: Gov/Politics (1 sem courses at our school), AB Calc, APES, Lit, Psych, and Human Geo.
