Dropping down a level........

<p>How bad does it look to drop down a level in a subject? Right now I'm a junior and my schedule is:
APUSH 1
science honors
math honors
english accelerated
latin 2
ap bio
an elective</p>

<p>I was supposed to take APUSH 2 next year, but to be honest, I'm not to good at APUSH (B average right now and it's really hard to raise...), and I honestly don't like history all that much. I'ld rather take accelerated. the thing is though, since I already took half of ap us history, would it look lazy to go down to accelerated since it's pretty much the same subject?
for senior year I was planning:
US history (level undecided)
AP physics
ap english
ap calc bc
latin 3
an elective
an elective </p>

<p>both latin classes are weighted</p>

<p>I'm aiming for NYU, Stevens, Rutgers, Barnard.</p>

<p>Why does your school separate APUSH into 2 years?</p>

<p>Every school in Central New Jersey to my knowledge does this, except mine. Just one.
It is a common practice believe it or not.</p>

<p>And it doesn't look as bad as you think. College admissions officers are probably not going to examine your schedule and consider it a huge deal to drop down one level in a class when the rest of your schedule looks fine.</p>

<p>No.</p>

<p>To the OP: based on your prospective list, you should be fine.....I have a number of students who did this and are doing fine this year with admissions.....</p>

<p>Yeah at my school AP United States History is a one year course: AP US, and AP US Seminar. I don't think it'll look bad, it'll be better if you stuck it out, but you don't like history (just like me) so it'll be a waste of your time. Do what works for you.</p>
