It seems that the one AP coursethat everyone on this site takes is AP Lit. Is it that important of a class to take in a college's eyes? I could fit it in, but then I wouldn't be able to take wildlife biology, which I really want to. So really how important is it for one to take AP Lit?

    AP classes shouldn't be taken for volume; rather, they should be taken for interest. As long as you take English, whether it be regular or whatever, you would be fine. If you're really interested in wildlife biology, then take that instead.

    AP Lit is basically senior honors English. It is at my school, I'd guess it is at most others; that's probably why you see alot of people taking it. It's just a continuation of their English curriculum.

    And unless you're really dense about literature analysis, I wouldn't worry. Take something you're more interested in.

    ^ Thats basically the way it is at my school as well. There is no senior honors English (there is honors english for every other grade but senior year). So anyone who is above average in English takes it.
