Is it really necessary to take the most rigorous schedule senior year (as many APs as possible) even if there are other classes (not APs) that I am more interested in taking? I ask because I have the option of taking AP Euro or a semester each of two classes that are not even honors (simply electives) that I have wanted to take since freshman year. Even if I ask my guidance counselor to write on my rec these were two classes I took b/c of true interest, will this end up hurting me? I understand it is only one class out of my seven, but do top schools simply expect you to take as many APs as possible? (btw, I go to a pretty small school that only offers about 6-7 APs anyway.)4 replies
