So I just got back the courses I am approved for senior year and my friends told me they worry about my sanity
Philosophical Foundations of Christian Thought (Required Religion Course. Basically Philosophy but a lot of work.)
AP Comparative Gov and Politics (1 Semester)
AP US Gov and Politics (1 semester)
AP Literature and Composition
Calculus (AP Calculus if I do well in my Precalc summer course)
Chemistry Honors (No AP available)
AP Physics 1
Military Science 12 (JROTC. Meets half time and doesn't really count towards cumulative GPA but it does take up time)
Music Theory 2 and Audio Production Techniques (Meets half time)
This year I was only in one AP course, APUSH, and a regular senior Physics course.
I know that on CC a lot of kids take 5+ APs, but this is pretty much very rare at my school. Most kids take none or one or sometimes two APs their senior year at my school. My friends said I should drop one or two but I really don't want to. I think that most of my workload will come from AP Lit and AP Gov, because I really enjoy the math based courses. Can any of you tell me about your experience with a courseload like this, especially if you come from a school where most don't take that many APs? This courseload is also a bit much because most kids at my school take 6 or 6 and a half courses, while I have 7 full time courses and 2 half time courses. I think I can get A to A+s in AP Physics, AP Calc, Chem Honors, Philosophy, and Music Theory 2. I don't see why I can't get at least A-s in AP Lit and AP Gov if I work hard, but I might have 4-5 hours of homework a night, and I will have to really cut down on procrastination and manage my time better.
I also plan on self studying for both AP Physics C exams, and since I'm in Chem Honors next year I might self study for AP Chem. Other possibilities are self studying for AP Computer Science A, and maybe self studying for AP Stats but I really don't know if I want to do that and take 9 or 10 AP exams at the end of my senior year.
Any comments you can make are greatly appreciated.
