I can't think of clever name..so, APs?

<p>Hi!
I was reading some posts on CC, and there were so many people concerned about whether they had taken enough APs or not. What I noticed was that people were taking APs their sophomore year, etc. However, my school doesn't offer any APs sophomore year (for example, a lot of schools offer AP World History), and only 1 AP junior year (AP US History). Here's my course load:</p>

<p>Junior Year:
*AP US History
*AP Calculus BC (I could only take this because I skipped a year of math)
*Honors German 3
*Honors English
*Honors Biology
*Normal Spanish 4 (this is only because NO other Spanish class would fit into my schedule...will be explain in my guidance counselor's rec letter)</p>

<p>Senior Year:
*AP Spanish
*AP English
*AP Physics C
*AP Chemistry (may be AP Statistics instead - which do you guys recommend? I'm going to be going into science/math so either is relevant to my interests)
*Independent Study Multi-Variable Calculus
*Honors German 4 (AP isn't offered)
*Intro to Art // Sketchbooking (UC schools anyone!?) --> this may be Band. I'm not sure yet..</p>

<p>I've always taken the most rigorous course-load available to me at my high school. Do you think it's competitive enough for top schools? If it helps, my GPA is a 4.32 ish (which is going up because I finished junior year with 4 A+s (2 of which are in my AP classes wooo!), 2 As, and 1 A- ). And my class rank is approximately #3-4 / ~350.</p>

<p>If it's the most rigorous course load available, then you're competitive. Colleges do take your school into account, so don't worry about it.</p>

<p>Thanks so much!</p>

<p>Yeah, don't worry about it if your school does not offer APs your sophmore year, my school does not either. What matters to college is what you do with what you have, and it seems like you're doing a rather good job.</p>

<p>I'm a rising senior and I took AP Chemistry this year and I did not think that it was difficult, but then again chemistry is my strong suit. I found AP Chemistry interesting, I don't know about AP Statistics though I'm taking that this year. Depends on what you like though.</p>

<p>You will never be held accountable for classes that your high school doesn't offer as long as you took the hardest ones.</p>

<p>You are evaluated in the context of your environment.</p>
