Am I crazy? APs

<p>So next year I will be a senior and here is my schedule
Physics AP
English literature AP
Spanish AP
Macro AP
Computer science AP
Marching band (I am a drum major)
Child development
Multivariate calculus (not technically an AP...taken through correspondence with an actual college )</p>

<p>Peopke are telling me I'm crazy and I'm starting to get nervous and stressed. I'm pretty sure I can't change my schedule at this point but does anyone have any pointers for handling this kind of courseload? Encouragement? Success stories?

<p>You are definitely not crazy. 5 AP classes isn't that terrible to manage.</p>

<p>AP Physics + AP English Lit + AP of a foreign language (im guessing you're not a native speaker) + Band/Drum + MVC lmao good luck</p>

<p>The AP Spanish is probably a little extraneous, but overall that isn't an unbelievable schedule.</p>

<p>I took five AP classes my Junior year, and I'm also in band (not a drum major, though). You'll manage, and things will get a whole lot easier when marching season ends.</p>

<p>Does your football team typically go deep in the playoffs? That could throw a kink into things because you're in band.</p>

<p>I took 5 APs my senior year plus economics and German III.</p>

<p>It's definitely do-able, but difficult, nevertheless.</p>

<p>You'll be able to get A's as long as you work hard</p>

<p>not bad at all. next year, I have 6 APs. Plus self study of 2-4 APs. What grade r u in?</p>

<p>No, you're not crazy; you're going to be just fine if you put decent amount of effort. I do have a success story for you. I took AP Calc BC, AP Phys C, AP Chem, AP Econ, AP Comp Sci and AP Lang as a Junior this year and I did the best possible. Don't listen to other people discouraging you, just take all those classes and you'll do great I'm sure.</p>

<p>As long as you are both efficient and hard working, I believe you'll do fine. Just DON'T get distracted! :)</p>

<p>Physics AP: If you're not naturally good at physics, this is going to be a challenge.
English literature AP: No problem.
Spanish AP: If you're not fluent, this is going to be a challenge.
Macro AP: No problem.
Computer science AP: Eh...depends on your Java skills.
Marching band: Obviously this takes up a lot of time, but I suppose that since it's over by spring semester, you can focus on AP studying.</p>

<p>Ha. Maybe to normal high school students it's crazy, but to the CC community, it's average. Some would even say you're slacking! ;)</p>

<p>^ haha I was thinking the same thing. After joining CC (which was 2 weeks ago) I seriously revamped my next year schedule and fit an extra 2 APs.</p>

<p>Yeah, some of these people with their perfect stats and AP heavy schedules make you feel incredibly inadequate, but overall the CC community is very helpful.</p>

<p>many of my senior friends have schedules very similar to that, and they do sports and have jobs! crazy ik right.</p>

<p>they all manage to have their act together though so i think you'll be fine</p>

<p>Thanks so much for the encouragement everyone! I love the college confidential community...its like an instant support hotline..from smart kids!</p>

<p>I'm taking organic chemistry, ap stat, ap calculus bc, ap English 4,ap govt/ap Econ ap physics b and pharmacy tech... How does my schedule rank? On one through ten difficulty?</p>

<p>I took 5 AP classes as a sophomore. It's generally not that ridiculous of a course load if you dedicate your time to it and actually put some effort towards it. However, I don't know your personal circumstances or what your school is like so I can't really say what your experience will necessarily be like. Good luck.</p>

<p>I'm a senior (just took my last final today, actually!) and I took 5 APs this year- 4 at school and 1 as self-study. At school: AP Calc AB, AP English Lit, AP Euro, & AP Spanish Lang, and AP Psych=self-study. It was busy, but not impossible. My GPA went down slightly, but not as bad as I originally expected. Just plan to do a lot of homework each night and on weekends- like I had to get up in the morning on weekends in order to get everything done, give up sleeping til noon on Saturday! Plus, I had auditions for college since I'm going to be a music major, and I was gone for those some weekends and for competitions.</p>

<p>How are you a drum major? You're not in college yet...</p>

<p>lolol im drum major of my high school band</p>
