Senior year schedule good enough for mid selective colleges?

I want to apply to mid selective colleges like USF, Purdue ,UC-Irvine, and NYU. I have taken all the AP/Honors courses at my school(except for AP Calc AB but I am taking Calc 1 in the spring via dual enrollment to make up for it due to scheduling issues since AP Lit and AP Calc is offered only once during the day and happens to be in the same period).

My second semester is probably okay but I am worried about my first semester schedule. I kind of wanted to have a lighter load than my second semester since I haven't even started any of my college apps stuff.


First Semester

AP Physics Algebra Based
AP Government
AP Eng Lit & Comp
Environment Science
Spanish 3
(College) Essentials of Nutrition--- I take this at a university for dual-enrollment


Second Semester

AP Physics Algebra Based
AP Eng Lit & Comp
Environmental Science
Spanish 3
Sociology
(College) Calc 1--- I take this at university for dual-enrollment
