Due to a weird scheduling situation in my school, in one slot I am currently taking ASL and Public Speaking. Which I thought was Debate-type but apparently NOOOO. It's apparently the class for all the slackers or people who couldn't fit what they actually wanted to take into their schedules.
So I've got a limited number of opportunities to actually pick my classes (just the way my school works), and I'm currently taking two APs, Bio and USH.
I really want to switch out of Public Speaking. It's really dumb, not going to help me at all, and is definitely not at all the most useful way to spend my time.
BUT: if I switch out, I need to give up ASL. And that, I really, really don't want to do.
So here are my pros and cons of switching out:
PROS: I get out of Public Speaking.
I take a class that is potentially more interesting.
I take a class that looks better for colleges.
CONS: I have to give up ASL, which I love.
My school doesn't encourage switching, and the classes have started already.
There aren't any LOVE classes that I'd want to switch to or that would even half make up for ASL.
SO. What should I do? Is it worth it to switch out of a great class that I love in order to get out of a class that I don't love and subsequently end up in a potentially so-so class that looks better on a transcript?
BTW, here are my options for switching out:
Physics (NO WAY.)
Studio Art (NO WAY.)
Robotics (maybe but it's supposed to be very hard)
Holocaust Studies (which I don't want to take but if I do I can keep ASL)
