Not taking a math course in college...

I'll be a college freshman in the fall.

I took the Calculus AB exam this year, and I'm fairly positive that I scored at least a 4. However, I don't want credit for it. I'd much rather take Calculus I over again or take a lower level math course, as I am not planning on majoring in anything math intensive. I used to think that this would be okay, but just now I found out that my college won't allow you to take a class over for credit if you have an AP score that fulfills the course, and I'd bet they wouldn't let me take a lower level math course either, since I'd already have credit for Calculus I. For my major, just having the AP credit fulfills the math general education requirement.

I really don't want to take Calculus II, but will law schools not like it if they look at my transcript and see no math courses?

    Law schools could care less, there's no set of courses required for law school, so it doesn't matter.

    Don't worry about it. You'll find music majors, theater majors, and art majors in law schools and many of them took no math in college. I avoided math as much as possible and took one lower level class because W&M required it for graduation.
