AP Stats vs. AP Economics, what should I take in my junior year?

<p>Hi guys,</p>

<p>I'm an international student and in my school, we r not allowed to take more than two APs in 11th grade. Currently, I'm a sophomore and I'm taking AP World History, next year I plan to take AP US History for sure, but then I'm realy confused btw Ap Statistics and AP Economics.</p>

<p>If I take AP Statistics, I'm quite sure that I'll ge an A in the class and a 5 on the exam as well, and since it doesn't require that much hard work, I'll also have time to spare for AP US. However when I apply to college, I'll have three AP Test Scores, AP WH, AP US, and AP Statistics. The problem is that if I take AP Chemistry, AP Calculus, and AP Econ in 12th grade, it'll be too much work load since AP Chem and AP Econ are mostly reading the textbooks. </p>

<p>On the other hand, if I take AP Econ in 11th grade instead of AP Statistics, I will manage to get an A in the class (hopefully), and pull off a 5 on both the exams. So when I'm applying to college, I'll have 4 AP Test scores (and hopefully all of them will be 5s:P)</p>

<p>So what I wanna know is what would universities (Harvard, UPenn, BU, and U of Chicago) like more, taking AP Statistics in 11th grade or AP Econ in 11th grade? Which AP would they consider harder? A 5 on which of these AP will look better? I am really confused and I have to turn in my form before 18th of March:S</p>

<p>Btw I wanna do a double major in Political Science, Government/Economics</p>

<p>Feedback will be greatly appreciated:)</p>

<p>AP Econ in 11th, AP Stats in 12th. That way, you can concentrate on colleges in your senior year.</p>
