<p>First off, I am an upcoming senior who is having a bit of trouble deciding whether or not to take AP Biology.
Here is my tentative schedule for the next school year:</p>
AP Calc BC
AP Bio (if I decide to take it)
Academic Decathlon (class might be dropped because the teacher is leaving)</p>
<p>If Academic Decathlon were dropped, I would only have 5 periods in a day. But if I decided not to take AP Bio, I would only have 4 periods in a day--that would leave me with a lot of time to finish my homework and get other stuff done like studying for SAT's or start college apps. </p>
<p>So really, what I'm asking is: should I take AP Bio or not? (taking into consideration that I will have a fairly busy schedule next year...I mean I will be able to manage...I'll just be EXTRA stressed) And will NOT taking AP Bio hurt me in the college application process?</p>
