Scheduling Conflict

<p>Hey everyone, originally my schedule looked like this:
-AP Gov
-AP Stats
-AP Bio
-AP English Lit
-French IV
-Physics</p>

<p>Scheduling conflict messes things up. AP Gov and French conflict, so I think I'll take Gov there, but also, Bio is offered in place of either AP English or AP Stats. I also have the option of adding AP Physics which wouldn't conflict with anything. Applying to Cornell and Columbia as an economics major in the fall. Help please!!</p>

<p>Take enough so that your counselor will check off "most rigorous" on your application. Other than that, take what you want pretty much.</p>

<p>You may want to take Stats if you're going to be an economics major. Have you taken AP Micro/Macro?</p>

<p>If AP Bio at your highschool is anything like mine, it is INTENSE. A lot of work. I don't say this to discourage you, but, consider prioritizing those subjects that roughly correspond to your major.</p>

<p>That said, I see you're applying to top-notch schools, and completely understand <em>why</em> you want to load up. I did the same thing (but it was incredibly stressful).</p>

<p>Ap Govt (in my case) was not much, work wise. And I really enjoyed it.
AP Lit was unique for me because of the specific teacher I had who did things much to his own liking so, I won't use it to judge your AP Lit because it may be very different.</p>

<p>I took AP stats for about a month and then dropped it because I was overloaded senior year (I had 5 other AP classes) and given that I had already taken AP Calc AB and BC junior year, I had already gone up to the highest level math my school offered. Taking Stats (in my case) was much like taking an elective, as opposed to a core class. But Stats was not hard -just a very "different" kind of math than what we're used to. Not the algebraic based math you've seen all these years.</p>

<p>I don't know if your school offers AP Econ, but if it does I suggest taking this:
Govt, Econ (Micro), and Stats as "for sure" classes.</p>

<p>Whatever you do, do not take BOTH AP Bio and AP Physics. Do not do it.</p>

<p>Last year I took APUSH, AP Chem, and AP Calc AB. Would it really be so much more difficult to take AP Bio and AP Physics along with Stats and Gov?</p>
