Hi! I’m currently a junior and getting ready to schedule classes. I want to major in political science and become a lawyer. I HATE math. Would dropping it be bad even if I take 4 AP classes and am involved in a lot of extracurriculars and have important roles in them? I am taking college level precalc now so I would be dropping college level calc next year. This is how my schedule will probably look:
- AP World (or AP Research)
- AP Spanish
- AP Lang
- AP Environmental
- (college level bc no AP option) government/econ
- health/ issues in govt (college level for same reason above)
I will be president of Young Dems, Ethics, and of a leadership organization I created. I will also write for the school newspaper and continue being a volunteer Punjabi language teacher.
I’m struggling in precalc (my average is fine I guess it’s 95 weighted, 92 unweighted) but it’s annoying, boring, and I just don’t enjoy it. Would it look bad to admissions officers if I drop math even with everything else?
Colleges I’m looking at include Brown, Cornell, Columbia, Barnard, Boston U, Boston College, Georgetown
My GPA rn is 98.4 weighted and I’m sure it’ll go up at the end of this year. My SAT score the first time taking it was 1330 but I’m going to take it again with more prep because I didn’t really study the last time.
