I am a junior at a trimester-based high school, so we are nearing the end of our first trimester. I am realizing that I signed up last year for AP Lang for the next two trimesters. It seemed like a good idea then, but it doesn’t make sense to me now.
I am a pre-med hopeful (potential biochem or neuroscience major), and I love (and am good at) my science classes. I just don’t see the potential benefit. I am taking 5 APs (we have 5 classes per trimester) and don’t want to take a class I am not going to need. On the other hand, I like being in classes with good students because often the students in regular classes don’t care as much.
Will taking AP Lang and getting a 4 or 5 on the AP waive any curriculum requirements at schools like CWRU ( @bopper ), University of Michigan, or Northwestern University?
How much will it hurt my chances if I don’t do great in the class if I want to go into a STEM major at a top pre-med school?
Any other positives on this situation would be greatly appreciated!
Thank you all in advance
