AP Economics or AP Statistics. And also AP Physics question

Hi, I was just looking for some advice concerning my senior year schedule. I'm stuck between AP Economics and AP Statistics, both are offered at my school during the same period.
Right now my schedule is:

AP English Literature
AP Calc AB
AP Macroeconomics or AP Statistics
Regular Econ (if I choose to do Stats) Choir (if I do Macro)
AP Physics
Teacher Assistant (or Free Period)/AP Government (2nd Semester)

Also, I'm going into Physics B without any previous physics. Science wise I've taken Biology, Chemistry, and AP Biology. Math wise my Precalc grade was a C, not going to make excuses for that its my fault, while my Alg II Honors grade was A.

For those who ask what I'm thinking about going into in later life, at the moment I have no clue... Haha I'm quite torn between a few things.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated :)

    For the AP Economics and AP Stats question, it all depends what you want to do in the long run/how it will help you in the long run. I would take AP Econ just because you're already taking AP Calculus AB. AP Physics B is considered "easy" because all you're doing is plugging in numbers into equations. The math doesn't trip students up in AP Physics B, it's the concepts, so study hard lol.

    Well, if you choose AP Stats you'll still be able to learn a bit of Econ, whereas if you choose AP Econ you cannot do a regular Stats class. I'd choose AP Stats.
