Which classes would you recommend for senior year? These are all the ones I am offered to take.
(already took AP US History, AP Art History)

Also, I don't want to overload myself; however, I want to take the classes I need to get into USC, UCLA, UCs. etc.

*AP Environmental Science
*AP Biology
*AP Government/AP Economics
*AP English Lit&Comp
*AP Spanish 9-10
*AP Statistics

    In actually preparing yourself for college (not just getting in) it might be good to take a variety, such as Bio, English, and Spanish so you can get used to a high level of work in different areas. Especially in bio, learning to do college level labs is helpful if you want to major in a science.

    I agree with thunder1. Of all the AP classes you have listed, I personally think that the most useful would be Stats, Lit., and Gov./Econ. I wish I'd taken stats in high school, because it's so important to understand how numbers and percentages can be manipulated. As for AP Lit., it's always a good idea to hone your writing skills, and the ability to write well will serve you throughout college. Of course, you may have a different academic track in mind, so these are just my two cents. :)

    No calculus AB or BC?

    Check the AP credit lists for each of the universities you are considering to see which ones are most useful for subject credit.
