AP Classes

I am debating between a few undergraduate degree paths:

- Medicine

- Human Biology

- Nutritional Science

I am thinking of getting AP Biology, AP Chemistry, AP Calculus AB (although I am not really into Calc. and am not in a Pre-AP class) .

I am also interested in AP Computer Science Principles. Do you think I should also get that one?

I don't think balancing volunteering and research life would be easy with 4 AP's with tough ones like the ones I mentioned.

Any advice for me??

(I am thinking of Standford, Columbia, Notre Dame in the U.S.A. ; UBC, Mcgill and Uni of Guelph for Canada; Uni of Edinburgh and Manchester for the UK applications. My average GPA will probably be between 3.5-7 at the end of senior year. )

Hello,

I recommend you take AP courses that you are passionate about and are related to your intended field of study. This will be best to ensure you will pass your classes, get college credit, and impress colleges. What are your interests? I can recommend a few AP courses if you would like.

I am interested in studying Medicine, Nutritional Science and Environmental Science.

Subject-wise, in general, I enjoy English, Biology and Chemistry classes.

I don't take school courses about them but I also enjoy Environmental Science and am slightly intrigued about Computer Science.

I am passionate about volunteering and doing research. Inclusive leadership is an important value of mine as well.

Here are a few courses I recommend:

1. AP Computer Science Principles (This course is different from AP Computer Science A, which is harder. AP Computer Science Principles is an introductory course and you can take AP Computer Science A afterwards in your senior year.)

2. AP Environmental Science

3. AP English Literature and Composition
