I hope you are all doing well and everyone facing Hurricane Ida is staying safe. I am currently entering Junior year and have a minor dilemma.
I applied and was appointed to be my school newspaper’s managing editor and am in line to be the editor-in-chief during my senior year. The only issue is that I have to use up a class slot for each semester in Junior year for the school newspaper. I am in my school’s signature program and have a class that cannot be moved around/dropped without dropping out of the signature program, so I have to drop AP Human Geography and take four AP classes instead of five (FYI in my school district you can only take 8 classes a semester). I took two AP classes in Sophomore year, and my school doesn’t allow students to take APs as a Freshman. My school is quite large and competitive and offers 29 AP classes. Is it worth being the managing editor and potentially editor in chief of my school newspaper and drop 1 AP or turn down the position and take 5 APs? Thank you, and I hope you guys have a great first week or last few days of summer!
TL;DR: I can either be the managing editor of my school newspaper and drop one AP or turn down being the managing editor and take 5 APs.
