CC classes vs. online APs?

Would it look better to take extra classes at community college or to take AP classes online for college apps??

    I personally would take it at a local CC. I have not had any experience with either, but honestly, going to CC will potentially add one more person to ask for recs on your list. You also won't look like a snobby spoiled kid; most programs I have seen reach up to $1000 a class.

    Depends on which courses and APs, and which universities you are likely to attend.

    State universities often accept transferable same-state community college courses better than AP credit for many subjects (e.g. same-state community college physics for scientists and engineers > AP Physics C). Private universities or out of state universities may have to do individual evaluation of community college courses since they probably do not have it already done ahead of time like state universities with same-state community colleges. In that case, AP will at least let you know sooner what credit you will get, if any.

    I'm not talking about credits. I'm talking about admissions
