I'm a rising junior and I was going to take yearbook next year. In my school it's a class for juniors and seniors. I currently have no passion for graphics or photography or anything but yearbook sounded like fun so I wanted to try it out. Plus my sister did it and she really wanted me to take it.
I signed up. Now I'm having doubts. Additionally, I already have many ECs in a few areas (none of them related to graphics/etc) so would it make me look scattered too?
Which looks better?
AP Calc AB
Self-studying AP Human Geography
AP Calc AB
no self studying
Either way I have a chance at national AP scholar. But will 5 AP classes be too much? I'll be able to handle the selfstudying, I already started a little. On the other hand, yearbook would lower my GPA and my rank which is in jeopardy as it is. And Stats relates more to my ECs. But yearbook sounds more fun. And if I did yearbook I would go for editor, HOPEFULLY in-chief. But I dont really NEED any more leadership positions.
Its a catch-22 ):
PS- I know I'm going to get jumped on for caring so much about what colleges think. I apologize in advance. I know I shouldnt do things just for colleges, but before you yell at me, consider that YOU are on this website as well. :)
