Is my schedule rigorous enough for my senior year?
So I got my preliminary coursework from my counselors and want to know if it looks rigorous enough for Top 20 colleges. Some context: my high school has 5 AP options for that I could potentially take.
Here is my schedule:
AP Physics C
AP Literature and Composition
Required Adulting course
Teacher Assistant for my Chemistry teacher.

How does karma work?
The system is simple: you receive karma (sort of like a credit) when you help others. If you're short on karma, you can do any of the following to earn more:
- 1 karma for each 👍 upvote on a question you post
- 1 karma for each 👍 upvote on an answer you post
if your answer is marked accepted
- 10 karma for reviewing an essay
- 10 karma if your essay review is rated 5 ⭐️
You can then use your karma to submit an essay for review or guarantee an expert answer on Q&A.
It's very good. Your school counselor should be able to communicate to your regional admissions officers for the schools you're applying to that your school only offers 5 AP Courses. However, it would look a lot more impressive if you have taken all 5 of the courses offered because then colleges can see that you like to take advantage of the resources given to you and that you are willing to challenge yourself.
as long as you're taking at or close to the most rigorous schedule available to you at your high school—which is seems like from what you have here—you should be set for Top 20 colleges. they care mainly about how your coursework compares to what is available around you, and most will ask your counselor in their recommendation to outline how your schedule rigor compares to your high school's overall options.
