Hi everyone. Not sure if this is the best place to ask this. I homeschool my 16yo son. He's been taking comm. college classes since spring semester of 9th grade (he's a junior). He took calculus I last fall, got an A. Wants to be a computer science major.
However, he was not able to get into Calculus II for this coming spring. So I got him signed up for Biology and Poli Sci (Am. Govt), both of which will do double-duty on his high school transcript as well as being transferrable.
Since registering, a Calculus II class opened up. But it conflicts and he would not be able to take the other two classes.
So, which do you think is better?
1. Take Calc II, which isn't necessarily a high school req. but may be more appealing to a competitive school for computer science?
2. Take the Bio & Poli Sci, which may make the high school transcript look better?
His dream school would be Caltech (which doesn't really take transfer credits, so the issue would be which looks better).
