Hello, thanks so much for looking at this post! I'm 2 weeks into my junior year and my schedule started out as Honors Wind Ensemble, APUSH, AP Chemistry, AP English, AP Calculus AB, and golf (which requires lots of traveling and getting home late) along with other clubs and extracurriculars. However, today I made the decision to drop APUSH based on a variety of factors. I gave it my all in the class and even my teacher said that I was more than capable of succeeding and managing the workload which I agree with, but I am a STEM oriented person who wants to focus on my challenging AP courses in those fields, I have lots of honors classes from previous years, I have plenty of extracurricular commitments, I have a minor health disorder that flares up with lack of sleep, I want to have ample time to study for the SAT/ACT/AP exams that I am taking this year, I can still earn a 4.67 GPA with straight A's in these classes, I will still have taken 7 AP classes by the time I graduate without APUSH, and I am only looking to go to a Top 100 school instead of the Ivies. I got many perspectives from seniors who took it last year, I made a pros and cons list, I consulted my friends, family, and GC who all supported me. But I know that I will constantly be doubting myself and comparing myself to my peers so I am wondering, does the CC community think I made the right decision?
