Is A Free Period Senior Year A Bad Idea?
Hi, I’m a rising senior and just received my schedule but am having second thoughts. My junior year consisted of: Honors Physics, Honors English, APUSH, AP Macro/Micro, Regular Spanish, and Regular Math. This year I am currently going to take AP Bio, AP Gov’t, AP Computer Sciences, Regular Math, Regular English, and Honors Anatomy. Seeing my finalized schedule made me wonder if I had overloaded it though. I want to go into medicine, but am unsure if I will be able to handle 2 sciences, so i had the thought of dropping Honors Anatomy for a free period. Would this be horrible for a college application?3 replies
