Okay, so for reference, I am currently a rising sophomore. To give some background, in 7th grade, I took Algebra I, and in 8th grade, I took French I, Earth Science, and Geometry. In the summer after 8th grade, I took a regular, un-weighted Psychology class online.
In 9th grade, I took Pre-IB English 9, Pre-IB Biology, Pre-IB World History/Geography, Pre-IB French II, Pre-IB Algebra II/Trigonometry, Economics and Personal Finance, and Health and PE 9. In the summer after 9th grade (now), I am currently taking Honors Pre-calculus/Mathematical Analysis and Health and PE 10 online (I also plan on doing Driver’s Ed in the near future). I also want to take AP Psychology and AP Statistics throughout this summer as well.
In 10th grade, I plan on taking Pre-IB English 10, Pre-IB Chemistry, Pre-IB AP US Government, Pre-IB French III, AP Calculus BC, AP Economics, AP Physics 1, and AP Physics 2. In the summer after 10th grade, I plan on taking Dual Enrollment Human Anatomy & Physiology and AP Physics C (Electricity & Magnetism & Mechanics, a two-parter course through CTD Northwestern).
In 11th grade, I plan on taking IB English HL, IB French SL, IB History HL, IB Biology HL, IB Chemistry SL, IB Math AA HL, TOK, AP European History, and AP Art History. In this year, I also plan on taking the AP European History, AP Art History, AP Chemistry, AP English Language and Composition, and AP Physics C exams.
In 12th grade, I plan on taking IB English HL, IB French SL, IB History HL, IB Biology HL, IB Chemistry SL, IB Math AA HL, and TOK. In this year, I plan on taking the AP French Language and Culture, AP Spanish Language and Culture, and AP Literature and Composition exams.
In your opinion, does this seem like too much? Does it seem unbalanced? Do you think admissions officers would look down upon this schedule, and look at it as a “checking off the boxes” type of plan, as opposed to taking classes that you are truly invested and interested in?
