How many AP Classes should i take?

I am currently an incoming sophomore at a private catholic high school with a GPA of 4.42 as AP classes were not allowed to be taken as a freshman and I am required to take Theology for all 4 years. I was planning on taking 8 AP classes as only 14 are offered at my school. I have been wondering over the past couple of days whether or not I should be taking any more AP classes as my goal is to get into Georgetown. What do you guys think?

I think it depends on you, if you think you could do well taking more I would go for it. If not as long as your profile is balanced out in your EC's and other activities taking 8/14 seems like a good number.

Also welcome! I hope you find it helpful here.
