Is one year of high school physics enough?
I am beginning my senior year of high school this year and the school I go to only offers one basic physics course which is AP Physics 1. There is no other way for me to take another year since there are no nearby schools or colleges that offer any kind of physics course. I plan to major in mechanical engineering and I am going to be applying to some pretty big name schools (UC Berkeley, Caltech, Harvard, etc.). Will the fact that I only was able to take one year of physics hurt my chances of getting into any of these schools?
