My daughter is currently taking a year off between sophomore and junior year as an exchange student. She had been planning to take a couple AP exams in her host country but I am concerned that if she does, College Board will count this year as a year of high school and she would no longer qualify for the NMSQT competition her junior year in the U.S. What do you think? If she has to choose between going for NMF or AP National Scholar by the end of her junior year, which do you think is more significant for admissions/scholarships? Taking 2 or 3 AP exams this year would make next May much less stressful since she would only need 2 or 3 more scores instead of 5. I don't know which way to advise her.
