I'm currently a sophomore in high school, and my dream school has always been UCLA. My GPA is low 3.6 unweighted, which I know is low.
My school only offers 1 AP (euro) for sophomores, but I didn't take that. I'm taking 3 APs next year though, and probably 4-5 senior year. I'm taking APUSH, AP Calc AB, and I'm deciding on science (between physics and environmental science). Should I just take environmental science next year to boost my GPA (it's easy in my school and physics is worlds harder) and AP Physics senior year? Would it look bad to be taking such an easy AP, or is it worth it if it brings my GPA up to a more favorable number. Thanks so much! I'm out of state (i know the tuition).
ECs: built a successful business freshman year (5,000+ sales), french honor society, marching band/wind ensemble, varsity tennis since freshman year, and FBLA.
