<p>Well, NO, you are not gonna die! Ok, now that we have that out of the way....</p>

<p>You could get admitted without any math in senior year BUT I believe most selective colleges, if not required, PREFER to see four years of math in high school (even if you have four years of credit due to acceleration, they like to see you taking math each year you are enrolled). So, if a college recommends or prefers something (such as math ea. year), it does not mean you cannot get in without it but it may affect your chances and why mess with something you may be able to have control over? </p>

<p>I definitely hear ya about the schedule conflict and agree that you should not give up AP English or Madrigals as these related to intended fields of interest. Though let me backtrack...ONE option would be to take math but get singing opportunities outside of school via voice lessons, community choirs and what not. </p>

<p>But let's say you do not do that and you want to take math as you really should. I have a three other ideas then. </p>

<p>One is to take Calculus as a supervised indep. study for credit. I have a daughter currently in a similar predicament. While she is in 11th grade, she is graduating a year early (applying to college right now), and she is at the level of AP Calculus in Math like you (due to two years acceleration). But the ONLY section of AP Calculus in our HS conflicts with her level of History/English (integrated course here called American Studies Honors)...basically the highest 11th grade English/History course. So, she had to be in that Eng/Hist class but giving up math did not seem like the way to go. She is not going into a field related to math and likely will never have to take a math course again as she is applying to BFA programs for musical theater. But we believe that her transcript would look best if she took math every year of high school attendance, even if she already had four years of HS math credits. So, she arranged with the AP Calculus teacher to do an indept. study but is not in the class. She sits in his office one period per day and gets the class assignments and tests and gets credit for the course. You could look into that same thing .</p>

<p>Second session is to do what my 18 year old did last year as a senior in high school. Due to acceleration in Math as well (two years ahead), she finished AP Calculus as a junior (nobody here does that) and thus finished our school's math curriculum. In order to keep taking math as a senior (not needing math credits but wanting to stay involved in math), she took a long distance math course via Johns Hopkins CTY. She took second year Calculus for credit and it is on her transcript. She earmarked one period per day to work on this long distance course. </p>

<p>Third idea is to take a class at a community college. That was not an option for my girls due to extracurricular commitments every afternoon and evening. The CC's also are not too accessbile here given the distances in a rural setting. </p>

<p>So, my advice is to try to stay involved in math each year of high school as you may be even taking it again in freshman year of college. </p>

<p>Good luck to you. You are visiting some great schools. </p>
