IB HL Math AI vs HL Math AA

Hi, I’m currently choosing my IB courses and I was wondering if T10 colleges would see HL Math AI as a waste of an HL (our school only lets us take 3 HLs out of 6 IB courses for the diploma program). Would it make more sense to take SL Math AA and another HL. I don’t want to take HL Math AA. I also want to keep my options open for engineering.

For engineering, a math HL is expected over SL. AI vs AA will generally not matter.
