dd wants to apply to top colleges with a likely major in math. She has completed AP Physics C (Mechanics) and was going to take AP Physics C E&M next year. However the physics teacher does not teach well and failed to bring out students interest or understanding in the subject. He is new and trying, and friendly too but the class is of low quality. OTOH the teachers teaching AP Biology and AP Psych are experienced and well liked by students. dd has already had Honors Biology and thinks it would be worth taking AP Bio as the teacher is excellent. So she is considering taking these classes and not Physics. She could potentially take Physics and Psych since psych is supposed to be an easy class but physics and bio would be too heavy a load along with the rest of the classes she has including AP Calc BC and the senior project.
Question - will it hurt her chances of admission to highly selective colleges (including LACs) if she does not take the second part of AP Physics C? DO they specifically value this class over other AP science classes (such as bio or psych that dont require calc). ?
