I'm still waiting to hear back from 6 schools, but as of right now, there's probably a 90% chance I'll be going to Emory next year, and I have some questions concerning their AP exam policies. Sophomore and junior year, I took AP exams for all of the AP classes I took those years, but this year, I didn't want to do that, since cost is going to be much more of an issue this year (and because soph and junior year, I didn't have much of an idea of where I wanted to attend college yet). This year, I have taken/am taking AP Calc AB/BC, AP Euro, AP Lit and Comp, AP Macroeconomics, and AP Gov., and I'm planning to go to medical school in the future. My original plan was to take only the AP Calc BC exam this year, but that was when I naively thought I would only have to have bio, English, calc, physics, foreign language, and chemistry classes to graduate. I now know about all the different requirements, including history, humanities, and phys ed requirements, and since I have until Monday to turn in all my money for AP exams, I am reconsidering my original decision to opt out of the Euro, Macro, and Gov exams.
I have a few questions:
1) The first year writing requirement can be satisfied using a 4 in AP Lang. and Comp., right? I read somewhere that it could, but the thread a few years old if I remember correctly, so I just wanted to make sure the policy hadn't changed.
2) Would a 4 on the APUSH exam fulfill one of the history or humanities requirements? Would AP Euro, Macro, and/or Gov fulfill the other(s)? Out of those three, which particular exams would fulfill which graduation requirement?
3) As someone who plans to pursue a career in the medical field, if I get a 4 or 5 on the AP Calc BC exam this year (and I have a 4 on the AP Stats exam which I took sophomore year), does that mean I won't have to take any more math courses ever again? I've looked on several medical schools' websites, and they gave a math requirement of just 2 years of calculus, but I just want to be sure.
