ONLY ALL AP CLASSES?? Help, please!
Hey, all and sundry. Without any preludes, I am a junior in high school and currently taking all AP classes. And it's hard. Without going into a long self-absorbed rant, let's just say that my science and math classes are presenting difficulties. I've been in all AP classes since ninth grade, but am now considering dropping PreCal for regulars in order to save my GPA. So here's the question...will dropping into regulars math and possibly physics for one year hurt my chances at competitive colleges (Amherst, Pomona, Princeton, Macalester, etc.)? I am going to be back in all APs next year, but if I stay in them this year I'm probably going to ruin my GPA...and that's bad. So I would appreciate some input on this. Thanks!14 replies
