So it turns out I can only fit 6 AP classes into my high school resume, three during junior year and three during senior year. (AP US History, AP English Lang, AP Biology, AP Calculus, AP Engish Lit, and AP US Govt and Politics.)
My remaining period in the day is filled by chorus, which counts as an honors credit. All of my other classes are honors as well.
Because I can't take any AP classes in the fall, I'll be taking probably nine or so community college classes in total by the time of graduation.
I've spoken to my counselor about this, and she told me that I need to have at least 7-8 AP classes to even be "considered" for admission into UNC Chapel Hill and Duke. (I am an in-state applicant.)
Does her statement have any legitimacy? It's been really eating away at me for the past several days and I need some second opinions.
It kind of seems like a load of bull to me, but again, my own opinion is not exactly the most qualified.
If it makes any difference at all, I made a 32 on my PACT and am involved in several academic clubs (Like Science Olympiad, for an example, where I've earned two medals so far.)
