Course Selection

ag2024ag2024 Registered User Posts: 30 Junior Member
Here is my course selection for Junior Year:

AP Statistics
AP Biology
AP Junior English
AP Macroeconomics/AP Government
AP US History
AP Spanish
Newspaper

I want to get accepted into a seven year medical program, meaning I won't take the MCAT. Is it necessary I take all these AP's? Would it be ok if I for example took regular US History, instead of AP? Regarding Statistics, I'm taking AP Calc BC as a sophomore, so I have no choice. Any suggestions on these courses?

    AP Statistics--ok. Maybe linear algebra or diff equations online or independent study senior year?
    AP Biology--definitely keep
    AP Junior English--writing intensive but not bad
    AP Macroeconomics/AP Government--ok
    AP US History--switch out for maybe another science? This is too time consuming to take with bio and gov. You'll die :P
    AP Spanish--must keep
    Newspaper--ok but not really med related
