<p>I am a business student who will be entering Olin this fall. I was told in my visits and by friends that Olin accepts up to 30 AP credits as opposed to ArtSci's 15. I was wondering if anyone could confirm for me what number it actually is.</p>
<p>According to this link, no.</p>
<p>This may be a new policy for Olin- I'm an engineer so I only really know engineering policies.
In other words, they may have accepted up to 30 in the past, but no longer do.</p>
<p>Olin was 30 units max 3-4 years ago. Then it changed.
Engineering is also in the process of becoming 15 units max and will likely be in place for the class of 2015.</p>
<p>It's at the point where most APs no longer offer credit though. 6-7 years ago, a score of 5 on an AP guaranteed credit, although some required you to take higher level courses first to get it. I'm sure in 5 years time there will be no AP credit at all, and it will just be used to skip intro classes, which is a real shame.</p>
<p>I have never quite understood why anyone would take 7 or 8 APs knowing the schools weren't going to give credit. Better to go somewhere that accepts that much hard work then. It's a pity if Wash U does away with AP credit altogether.</p>
