<pre><code> I'm currently a junior in HS, but I have a question about using AP credits (that you might have answered before; I used the search forum feature but found nothing relevant). Well, first of all, my situation: both my parents are encouraging me to use as many AP credits as I possibly can (these will include AP Phys B, Bio, Chem, BC, Eng Lang, and Eng Lit) to cut down on the number of years of college and, more importantly, the cost of tuition. I'm asking this question, therefore, because the college I end up attending might depend on me using these credits to cut tuition (as in, my parents won't let me take on absurd debts at a top school unless I plan to save as much as I can). So:
<p>1) Is this recommended?
2) What are the pros and cons to this plan?
3) Any personal experiences with premeds who have done this?
4) Though this question must have already been answered several times: Is it worth more to take on the debts at a top college (and then possibly the exorbitant costs med school) or purposely attend a state or lower tier school at reduced tuition (and assault med school costs with a full coffer)?</p>
<p>Thanks to all in advance.</p>
