<p>I'm a junior and registering for my senior classes.
I am debating whether to take AP Spanish (for four consecutive years of the same language) or AP Computer Science.
I took a year's equivalent of French in middle school, and I'm on my 3rd year of Spanish in high school. I also have 2 years' equivalent of Chinese credits from Chinese School.
The Spanish department at my school is terrible (big mistake for me to choose Spanish in freshman year; I would have taken French but the French program was cut), and I wasn't planning on taking the AP Spanish test next year if I were to take the class. It would also be a huge waste of my time and I'd rather spend that time learning something.</p>
<p>Additional info: I will have taken Orchestra for 4 years, which counts for my occ. ed. requirements (have not taken any real occ. ed. classes), but would definitely prefer to take AP CS over AP Spanish. Most of the colleges I'm interested in recommend 3 or 4 years of language. I love languages and I am interested in studying more of them in college.</p>
