<p>Im a junior. Hi, there were some AP classes I REALLY wanted to take this year that didn't fit in my schedule :( I often times wish there were more class periods in a day, while the school day was still 8 hours haha.
I'm applying to more selective schools:
MIT, Stanford, UPenn, UMich, JHU, Emory, Columbia, CMU, Princeton, among others (you get the idea. I'm applying to many programs as I have to many interests and I would be happy in any of them. I like math to CS to economics to philosophy to art history)</p>
<p>This year, I really really wanted to take AP computer science, AP chemistry, AP Art History, AP psychology, AP Environmental Science, AP Statistics, AP French, AP English, AP Calc. I'm not going to be able to take most these my senior year, again, from scheduling issues.</p>
<p>I go to one of the most rigorous schools in tr country/world. Ranked 2nd in independent prep schools in the country. </p>
How would it look if I took these tests without the class? do they add to a college app? Do they seem like I had an interest, or does it show a "I'm only good at test-taking", or that "I'm trying to hard. No genuine interest."
Also, how does online classes, like AoPS or CTYonline help? What If I took an AP CTY course? How could that demonstrate my interests? Thanks.</p>
