    You should be taking something like history or social studies. Econ can also fit that category. I’d drop AP psych or stats and take something else.

    Taking four AP classes is a lot for one year. If you are worried, listen to your instinct.

    Some schools don't offer history every year. My school doesn't. I think as long as AP Pysch isn't replacing the school's history class, then it's okay.

    I vote for personal finance! It might be a lighter class for an otherwise stressful day, but it's really useful. You might learn about taxes, budgets, etc. and a lot of students don't get the opportunity to do so.

    Do you have a study hall?

    I think they are definitely good classes and Psychology can definitely count as a social studies subject.

    I would suggest you do programming or finance because you don't want to get a crazy teacher and work super hard and eventually still get a C or B. Plus. you do need time to work on your SAT/ACT, your extracurriculars, your other application stuff, etc.
