I know this question is asked fairly often, but I would like an answer pertaining to my situation (please).
When I graduate, I will have 5 AP’s on my transcript: US History (junior year), Human Geography (sophomore), Statistics (senior), Literature (senior), and Government (senior). I’ll also have (roughly) two years of honors classes on my transcript. (That would leave 1 year of standard classes).
My high school offers a total of 23 AP courses. I would have roughly 20% of my high school’s AP on my transcript. I also have a diagnosed learning disability, although it would be considered “mild/high functioning.”
I’m looking at schools with acceptance rates down to 20% (10% for Bates). Think Kenyon, Bucknell, Holy Cross, URochester, Bates, etc.
Are these enough AP classes for the schools I’m looking at?
For reference, I have an ACT score of 31 and gpa of 3.59/3.83 (three years of high school). This is an upward trend (3.4 fresh/soph year to 4.0 junior year).
