Do you think it'd be more helpful to take AP Environmental Science or AP Comp Sci?

I want to be either a doctor maybe neurologist or a biomedical engineer, so I'm trying to plan ahead. Which one do you think would help more in the long run?

    I'd say take AP Envi Sci. I honestly don't see how taking AP Computer Science would help in Medical school (if you decide that's your path). Environmental science, in general, is fairly simple. Try also taking harder AP classes, especially difficult math/science ones (AP Chem, Calc AB, Biology, Chem). Those 4 would look amazing on your transcript.

    I too have aspirations to enter Med School.

    In summary, take AP Envi Sci. However, it is recommended that you challenge yourself with harder courses. AP Envi Sci can also be good for the Ecology/Biology aspects/topics needed for the MCAT.

    Best of luck!
