    What is FL? In Sophmore year I’m planning to double in science and take AP Physics C and AP Bio. Next year I’m also planning to do AP Euro and Honors English. For Math I’m going to be taking Linear Algebra at a local university. Would this be fine? I’m trying to make top 10 schools in Computer Science.

    FL = Foreign Language

    There is no need to double up on science as a sophomore!

    Most selective colleges, even for their computer sciences, like to have students who take the core courses all 4 years.

    Your freshman schedule should have English, Science, History, Foreign Language as well your math. All at the most rigorous level possible at your school.

    I am surprised that your school permits you to take such a lop sided schedule.
