Random Question about reccomended # of AP classes

<p>To start off, this is very random question. I'm a current junior at a top-tier prep school looking to apply to Vassar next year and many similar colleges. I have a good GPA and I'm currently taking 3 AP's (took 1 last year).</p>

<p>It's early on, but I feel like I'm struggling in AP Physics. I find the material interesting, but I just don't think I have the mind for it. I don't plan on majoring in science. If I were to take 2 AP's this year (out of 4 available to me this year) is that going to be a relatively large factor in looking at my academic ability?</p>

<p>Any current students who can shed light on how many AP courses they took? How heavily do they look at AP exam scores as a means of deciding whether to admit a kid? Thanks for any insight.</p>

<p>I think it’d be fine taking 2APs. I know a lot of people who took fewer APs than offered at their school and got in. I think what the school looks at is if you’re taking the right classes for you. Vassar is huge on doing what you like, so if you don’t like a certain subject, you don’t have to feel obligated to take an AP course in that area. Take as much as you can handle, never overdo.</p>
