Rigorous Schedule?

<p>I recently signed up for my sophomore classes they include
English 10 Honors
Algebra 2 Honors
Chemistry 2 Honors (semester class)
Physics 2 Honors (semester class)
Chinese 3
World History (only history class given *no honors)
Biology (required)</p>

<p>I Chose not to take AP comp science possibly avaliable (not given the current school year due to low enrollment)</p>

<p>Planning to self study AP euro, world history, and human geography for sophomore year</p>

<p>Will taking debate over AP comp science hurt my chances at top schools that look for the most rigorous schedule and such?</p>

<p>...Well, if it's not given that particular year, that should be explained somewhere, no?</p>

<p>You're taking, as far as I can tell, every honors class available to you and self-studying for three APs. How much more rigorous can you get? There's nothing wrong with your schedule, I promise.</p>

<p>My soph year was less rigorous (2 honors, school did not give me APCS because it conflicted with PE -__-)...I ended up taking APCS junior year instead. MIT didn't seem to care.</p>

<p>salamander - Sorry for being not very clear I meant: for the current school year there is no AP comp sci but it may become avaliable if enough people choose to take it. Thanks for feedback</p>

<p>diffyq- 2 honor classes with MIT sweet I'm sold haha, thank you for the great feedback</p>

<p>anyone got more advice :P</p>

<p>helps please!!</p>

<p>Adcoms will consider your schedule's rigor as compared to the courses offered at your school. What may be rigorous at one school may be average at another; as such, we cannot really help you too much. Just take the toughest courseload available to you.</p>

<p>That's my question, will not taking AP comp science hurt me much?</p>

<p>I don't think one class will hurt, but if you consistently opt out of hardcore classes it probably doesn't look too good.</p>

<p>For the record: 2 honors soph year is the norm for top students at my school, as most people don't skip classes or take APCS / Music Theory. Oh, and I also didn't take APUSH junior year, but then I was taking 4 other APs so that probably made up for it.</p>

<p>I guess as long as you enjoy what you're taking, it'll be fine. Don't try to overload yourself with busywork if you have a lot of activities that you're extremely dedicated to.</p>
