Hello. I hope you are having a great day. I have a question about AP European History as a sophomore.
Is it really worth it for a student interested in finance?
I absolutely love finance and investing and I plan on studying that in college. I am taking business related courses and excelling in my math courses since they are somewhat related to finance. I am also in the stock club to learn more about investing, debate team to get used to public speaking, and am hoping to join the math team. These are all related to business/finance in some way or another, but is AP European History?
Everyone in my grade is obsessing over useless AP credit just for college, but can’t admissions officers see right through that?
I am going to be blunt. I absolutely hate history. I find it boring and a complete waste of time for ME specifically. Despite this fact, I still need 3 history credits by graduation, and sophomore year is the year I don’t need to take history. So is taking a class I hate, that is not related to my future major, and not a requirement, really worth it?
I am thinking of taking engineering on top of my business courses, instead of taking AP Euro, because of my interest in math. My dad was a systems engineer before getting his MBA in finance and he said I should do that instead of taking a class I wouldn’t like. But he went to college almost 30 years ago and got his MBA 20 years ago and I am pretty sure things have changed since then.
I just really need advice. Any of it would help out. Have a great week and good luck with finals if you have them!
