Admissions Advice

Do you think the courses that I am taking is manageable?

I am going to be a junior next year, and I am registering for courses.

So far, I have 3 APs and 1 Honor that I want to take in junior year.

Below are the courses that I am planning to take:

English 11

AP United States History

Algebra II / Trigonometry

AP Psychology

AP Biology

Chemistry Honors

Marching Band (1 semester)

Korean 1 (Community College - High School Dual Enrollment)

Any recommendations about the courses that I am taking? Do you think the courses are manageable? What do I need to look out for?

What do you mean? Do you mean you are taking 2 APs? On the list, I have 3 APs that I am planning to take.

Why are you taking both AP Bio and Chemistry honors in the same year? I think that's a little weird, but otherwise, everything looks okay. AP Psych tends to be a little bit easier, but make sure you pay attention in APUSH. Do you already know Korean? Asian languages tend to be a lot harder for native English speakers if they aren't immersed in the environment at home, especially as a college level dual enrollment class. I think a better use of your time would be a different dual enrollment class (unless you already know korean and are using it to pad your gpa.)
