Is My Junior Schedule Too Easy? (for Ivy Standards)

<p>I had my junior schedule all planned out but I had some scheduling conflicts at school because there was no space available for some classes. Here is the schedule I wanted but couldn't get:</p>

<p>AP English Language
AP Physics B
AP Statistics
AP US History
Creative Writing (all year--Regular)
Journalism (1 semester--Regular)
Literature and the Arts (1 semester--Honors)
AP Psychology</p>

<p>Online Course:
Pre Calculus Honors</p>

<p>Here is what my schedule will be this year:
1st Semester:
Family Dynamics (Regular)
Modern Mythology (called Great Books also) (regular)
Pre-Calculus Honors
AP Physics B
AP US History
AP English Language
Art II (Drawing and Paint I) (Regular)</p>

<p>2nd Semester:
Journalism (Regular)
Creative Writing I (Regular)
Pre-Calculus Honors
AP Physics
AP US History
AP English Language
Art III (Drawing I) (Regular)</p>

<p>Online Course:
AP Statistics</p>

<p>I'm afraid with all the regular classes I have my schedule won't look challenging enough to top colleges. Is my schedule good enough.</p>

<p>I've also taken 4 APs in the past:
AP Biology-B- Scored a 4
AP French (only sophomore to take)-B+-Scored a 4
AP World History-B+-Scored a 5
AP Human Geography-A-Scored a 5</p>

<p>Perhaps you could self study a couple APs if you're worried you'll look dumb without APs, I think if you can tie in some ECs related to your unique classes (i.e. a forensic science class with a internship/volunteering at your local detective's office)</p>

<p>Are you sure you are qualified to take 5 APs? You've scored consistent B's in the past. </p>

<p>4AP or 5AP is better than 3. That's all anyone can say</p>

<p>^yeah, I'm concerned about that as well. If you're aiming for Ivy Leagues, the B's probably won't cut it.</p>

<p>I'm not part of the ivy club, but I have two or three good friends who took 5-6 AP classes and ended up with GPA's of 4.00</p>

<p>You have to compete against them. ^__^</p>

<p>Bump. Bump. Bump.</p>

<p>I believe if I stay on top of things I can do well Junior Year. Will 4 APs be enough this year. I could always take AP Art History online. I really want to boost my UW GPA.</p>

<p>people stress wayyyy too much. i know one kid who had beast political extra curriculars. he was the head of the new jersey teenage republicans and things of that nature. he was really well-informed about the world. his schedule wasn't as crazy at all. i think his junior year schedule was:</p>

<p>regular math analysis
honors physics
ap us history
ap english
ap politics
honors french</p>

<p>He got into Princeton, Yale, UPenn, Cornell, and Dartmouth. Had a 2310 on his SAT's. He just did REALLY well in the classes that he took and made sure that his interests stood out. Relax yall..</p>

<p>AND he was not a URM</p>

<p>Thanks quintillion, you're probably right. I am stressing a bit. I think Ill probably focus on ECs.</p>
