How do I choose which AP classes to take?

Hey collegevine! I'm planning my senior year schedule, and I'm not sure which AP classes I should take. Should I choose the ones I'm most interested in or the ones that will look best on my college application? Thanks for your advice!

Hey there! It's great that you're thinking about your senior year schedule and considering AP classes. When it comes to choosing which AP classes to take, it's important to strike a balance between your interests and the courses that will be most beneficial for your college applications. Taking classes that you're genuinely interested in will likely lead to a better performance, as you'll be more engaged and motivated to excel. On the other hand, taking AP classes that are relevant to your intended major or field of study can demonstrate your dedication and preparedness for college-level coursework in that area. Ultimately, it's best to choose a mix of both. Pick some AP classes based on your interests and some that align with your academic goals. This will not only make your college application stronger but also ensure that you enjoy your learning experience during your senior year. Good luck!
