Does it make a difference whether I do Honors Algebra 2/Trig as a sophomore vs Pre-Calculus/Calculus A as a sophomore? Either way, I will finish both AP Calculus BC and AP Statistics. My counselor thinks it may not be a good idea for me to cram in a complicated subject like Algebra 2 during the summer. But I'm all like "Uh, how about no?" in my head.
Does it really matter?
Also, I've found a way to have P.E. not counted on my transcript. My schedule for next year is set at:
Honors English 10
Honors Algebra 2/Trig
AP Human Geography
AP European History
But, I also found a way to have my Journalism not counted on my transcript. I'm mainly doing it because it's something that I enjoy doing and will look good on my resume. But I can say "Student Service", a class which doesn't count on your GPA. That would give me a perfect 5.0 if I got all As.
But my counselor is concerned that the colleges will think I was just a student service, and not participating in the class like I will be.
