<p>The only way AP credit factors into transfer admissions is that they may permit you to take higher level coursework. But they do not act as a replacement for current classes.</p>
I will take 4-5 classes next semester, as well.
<p>I'm a little confused about this, are you talking about summer, next fall? Neither of these would affect your transfer decision, as they are only projections of what you intend to do.</p>
<p>I don't know exactly how your school works, but for most, a 'normal' full time load is 4-5 classes or 15-16 units. </p>
<p>I don't know your HS record, test scores, or current college, but my guess is that you're trying to transfer up as a soph to highly selective colleges (2-15% transfer rates). When these schools look at your college record, they will consider all factors: school, rigor of courses, number of units, grades, etc. If you are carrying a less than normal courseload (worse if less than full time), that could definitely have an impact.</p>
