I am currently a sophomore in high school and I need to figure out my schedule for next year. I want to go to a really good college, maybe even an ivy league, but I don't know which classes would benefit me the most. I love science and want to go into the medical field so I am thinking that I need to take a lot of science courses. BTW, AP U.S History is the hardest class at my school. About 2 people in the entire class get an A every year...
Is this a good/hard enough schedule?
AP English Language and Composition
or should I take:
AP US History
AP Engish Language and Composition
Human Anatomy and Physiology
My dilemma is that I am extremely busy (I play two varsity sports, volunteer at the hospital, and work) and I don't want to be overwhelmed with a huge workload everyday. If I don't take AP U.S. History, I would have to take AP Chemistry because I am in the running for the top 10 (top 10 ranked people in my class) and I can't fall behind. However, NO ONE signs up for AP Chemistry because of the teacher...only three or four people do and they can't have a class. Is there any way I could take it online?
P.S. For math at my school, it goes Geometry, Algebra II, Math Analysis, Calculus AB, and then Calculus BC . My senior year I will take Calculus AB.
