No, I meant as in if it would be worse in both ways rather than just taking a regular class and getting better grades in it. For example, if it shows that someone tried really hard in their classes, but ended up with a 3.0 while taking Ap classes. 3.0 sounds really low for someone going into a good university. Would they still consider it ok since that person was taking AP classes?
When I wrote about the 2.0 and getting all C's, I meant as in if it would matter if you got a C in an AP class.
