AP Chem necessary?

I participated in Chem Olympics, chemistry competition, as a freshmen and sophomore. Now that I'm going to be a junior next year I have 4 AP science open to me. I was wondering if it would look bad if I don't take AP Chemistry on my college application. I enjoy chemistry but I took it already and want to take AP Physics this year and AP Environmental Science next year. Would this look bad on my college app?

PS: I plan on majoring in Economics. If not most likely nothing in the sciences.

    AP Physics this year and AP Environmental Science next year.

    Bump AP Environmental and go for AP Chem.

    That seems okay to me. In my opinion you need not take AP Env. That class is so useless, I don't even know why they offer it. Try AP Biology it's a great class.
