Advice for course rigor
Answered

I got put into the alternative course that I requested for my senior year and now I'm taking 5 AP classes even though I hoped for 4. It may be possible for me to get that class replaced with study skills but I'm wondering if it's worth doing that. I'm not sure if that looks bad on my course rigor but it sounds difficult hard taking 5 AP classes at once instead of 4. If it does look bad to take study skills, then I'm willing to really push myself on taking 5 AP classes but if not, then I'd rather stick with study skills.

Four AP's is already a rigorous schedule--even if you attend a school which offers lots of higher level courses. If you think five AP courses would be too much for you, then you could possibly jeopardize your grades in the rest of your classes. Doing well in four AP's would (99% sure) look better than doing alright in five AP's. Take four.
