Scheduling Help

<p>So I'm currently a Junior (9 periods a day with Lunch and Study Hall) with the following schedule:</p>

<ol>
<li>AP Calc AB</li>
<li>Spanish IV</li>
<li>AP Chem (double period)</li>
<li>Law Honors/PE*</li>
<li>English III Honors</li>
<li>APUSH</li>
</ol>

<p>Now at our school we select our next years schedule after the 1st semester final. But today I read about some new classes offered next year and figured I'd ask now and give the forum time as to what classes I should apply for.</p>

<p>Previously Planned Schedule:</p>

<ol>
<li>AP Calc BC</li>
<li>AP Psychology</li>
<li>Physics Honors</li>
<li>PE/Economics Honors*</li>
<li>AP Literature</li>
<li>AP Stats</li>
<li>AP Government</li>
<li>Open</li>
<li>Lunch</li>
</ol>

<p>I kind of wanted a open but I'm willing to give it up. I'm questioning whether I should take some of the new APs at our school (World History and Economics) or Spanish V Honors (Can't take AP). I could even take a freshman study hall in the Peer Leadership Program where I'd have to give presentations every week. Just make your suggestions.</p>

<p>Possible New Schedule:</p>

<ol>
<li>AP Calc BC</li>
<li>AP Psychology</li>
<li>AP World History? or Spanish V Honors? or Peer Leadership?</li>
<li>PE</li>
<li>AP Literature</li>
<li>AP Stats</li>
<li>AP Government</li>
<li>AP Economics?</li>
<li>Lunch</li>
</ol>

<p>*PE is required unless you get exempt from it with a varsity sport, which I play football. I also play lacrosse but that is still a 'club' sport at our school so it doesn't qualify for the 2nd semester.</p>

<p>SO WHAT DO WE THINK?</p>

<p>Anyone have any comments or suggestions after going through the college process?</p>

<p>Just take out the AP you aren't that interested in and add in a study hall. Personally, I'd take out AP Stats or AP Psych and have a study hall or open period or whatever with Spanish in there.</p>

<p>So you saying</p>

<ol>
<li>AP Calc BC

<ol>
<li>Study Hall</li>
<li>AP World History</li>
<li>PE</li>
<li>AP Literature</li>
<li>AP Stats</li>
<li>AP Government</li>
<li>AP Economics?</li>
<li>Lunch</li>
</ol></li>
</ol>

<p>OR </p>

<ol>
<li>AP Calc BC

<ol>
<li>AP Psychology</li>
<li>Peer Leadership?</li>
<li>PE</li>
<li>AP Literature</li>
<li>AP Stats</li>
<li>AP Government</li>
<li>AP Economics?</li>
<li>Lunch</li>
</ol></li>
</ol>

<p>The first one you just listed. You're going to want the study hall/open period senior year.</p>

<p>Ok thank you</p>

<p>I personally think if you can handle it, you should go for the 2nd schedule. I would take spanish because 5 years of a foreign language is very good for college. However, it's better to get A's in less Ap's then B'-C's in more, and I don't personally know you. It is all about what you think you can handle.</p>

<p>Hmmm...I see for your revised schedule you won't be taking a science. If your going to be applying to top-tier colleges (and possibly interested in a STEM major) then you should REALLY take four years of science. So, I'd recommend:</p>

<ol>
<li>AP Calc BC</li>
<li>AP Psychology</li>
<li>Spanish V Honors (Four years of a foreign language also looks good on college apps.)</li>
<li>PE/Economics Honors </li>
<li>AP Lit</li>
<li>AP Stats</li>
<li>AP Government</li>
<li>Physics Honors</li>
<li>Lunch</li>
</ol>

<p>Thank you for all your suggestons.</p>

<p>Now I would like for detailed reasons for taking the following classes.</p>

<p>-AP Psychology
-Spanish V (Not AP so is it worth it?)
-AP Macroeconomics
-Physics Honors
-AP World History (all but ruled this one out)</p>
