Should I drop my science research class

<p>So junior year is coming soon and I'm currently making decisions on my courses for next year. My courses aren't set in stone but it seems that I'll have virtually honors and AP classes for next year. Now there's also this research program in my class that I'm planning to drop for next year but I don't know how this will look like when I apply to top selective colleges. The reason for me dropping is that I will be extremely busy with both AP and honors classes next year. I spoke with my guidance counselor and she suggests dropping it, saying selective colleges like ivys couldn't care less. I honestly don't believe this. I'm wondering if it'll make the difference between rejected and accepted. And also me dropping this class won't show up on my transcript according to my GC.</p>
