How much to AP's matter when applying?

<p>say one had good stats (3.9 uw) (1480 SAT), plenty of ec's, and several honors classes every year. but they either took no ap's or only a few (1-3). would that significantly reduce chances of getting into a good school. would the fact that they took honors still show that they had a pretty hard work load?</p>

<p>It depends really on what school you are applying to and how many AP's or advanced classes your current high school offer. I think that it could hurt at many top colleges if they see you only took 1-3 AP's and your school offers 10-15 Ap's. Thats how i look at it though.</p>
