Self-studying senior year: Is there any point at all?!

<p>I'm about to go into my senior year. So far, I've taken 1 AP course (that's all my school offers to juniors), AP Computer Science, and I got a 5. I'm taking AP English and AP Calculus senior year, and that's it; that's all my school offers.</p>

<p>My question is, is there any point in self-studying for AP tests now for senior year? Will it help with admissions at all? They won't be able to see my scores obviously since the tests are in May, but at least I can write on my app that I'm self-studying. </p>

<p>I'm thinking it won't help me at all since any idiot can say they took <em>insert laundry list of AP exams here</em>, and end up getting 1s and 2s.</p>

<p>I hope that all made sense, thanks for the help!</p>

<p>PS: I'm only talking about whether or not this will help me get accepted into prestigious universities, not if it'll be worthwhile because I'll gain college credit or anything.</p>

<p>I'm in a similar situation and I'm wondering the same thing. I can't quite understand what difference it would make if I self-studied or if I didn't. If I did I would only gain...knowledge...a high ap score. If I didn't they wouldn't know and there would be no chance of failure. Also, I have a lot more to do with my senior year than to punish myself by studying what I consider to be an obscure and irrelevant subject.</p>

<p>If you haven't self-studied AP tests in the past, it won't help your chances to do it Senior year. It's not necessarily pointless though, because you can learn new things, and get college credit. But if the only reason you'd be doing it is to get admitted into prestigious universities, then yes, it is pointless.</p>

<p>Dang, I kinda wish I self-studied before...</p>
