How important is the number of aps you take senior year to colleges?

This year(senior year) I am taking ap lit, ap stat, and ap enviro. Non-Aps that I am taking are honors physics and the rest electives(3 classes).
Is this not rigorous enough for colleges like bates, oberlin, maybe middlebury?...
I was thinking of possibly taking either ap econ or ap bio, but i'm not sure if i will be able to take them since most classes now are already full.
Do colleges care a lot about the amount of aps you take senior year?

    There is no set number of APs you need to take to be competitive. What you do need to maintain is a more general sense of course rigor. What exactly that means will depend on your school.

    When filling out a Secondary School Report (SSR), HS Guidance Counselors are asked to rate the rigor of a students program in relation to other seniors attending the school. So, to follow up on glassesarechic, much depends on how you stack up against your classmates.
