This is one of my first times posting here, but I do quite a bit of reading. I figured if anyone could help me with my problems, it would be you guys and gals. Here's a little background about myself:
Public school (2,000 kids, each counselor has 400ish kids)
Looking at attending a selective college (Vanderbilt, Harvard, Northwestern, etc)
This year for my advanced classes I took AP Chem, Honors English and Honors History (That's really all my school has).
Looking to go into a form of engineering (mechanical, chemical) and entrepreneurship. Thinking about med school
For next year, a lot more APs open up due to prerequisites being met. However, we are on a trimester system with five classes per day and my school doesn't offer APs fourth hour. In addition, most APs are offered only once per day so that creates a scheduling problem. Right now, I am definitely going to take AP Calculus AB and AP Physics. Past that, I have to decide between AP English, AP Bio, Spanish 4, AP Gov, and AP World History. All of them interest me...do colleges prefer to see one over the others?
With that being said, am I in my right to ask for a note to be made that I tried to take more AP classes but was unable to due to the school's scheduling? Also, we have AP Calc BC on our course offerings, but it will not be offered next year. Should I also ask to have that made note of? My counselor really doesn't spend a lot of time with us and is not used to sending kids to anything but a state flagship or equivalent, so that is why I came to you guys. Thanks for all the help and trying to lessen my stress. You are awesome.
