Is this senior schedule okay?

Although my username suggests I want to go into medicine, I'm actually looking into engineering (I'm on my brothers account). Is this an okay schedule to take for my senior year schedule?

AP Physics C (DP) 4 sem
AP Psych 2 sem
AP World History 2 sem
Intro to Networking (special magnet class) 1 sem
Multivariable Calc 2 sem
Optics 1 sem
Software Design (special magnet class) 1 sem
Student Aide 1 sem

The only real one I'm worried about is the student aide. Its for the magnet-level stats class, which I took last year, so I can be a potential asset to that teacher. Even so, I couldn't fit ANYTHING else in that period, but colleges won't know that and I'm afraid they'll assume I'm slacking. Is this a plausible assumption?

Also I'm in a science/math magnet program, so i've been taking 8 periods a day for the past 4 years.

    I don't think it's "slacking" to take a student aide block with three APs and a couple other high level classes. I really wouldn't worry about it :)

    Oh, I forgot to add that I'm taking Honors English 12 2 sem. English isn't my strongest subject so although I could take AP Lit, I'm not. I took AP Lang last year though and scored a 5 miraculoulsy.
