Admissions Advice

Will taking 7+ AP Courses be worthwhile if I'm attempting to reach MIT?

Hi, I'm a Mexican-born student situated in TN. My goal is to make it to MIT to pursue a career in Biomedical Engineering. I have a 4.4 GPA, near the top- if not the top- of my class. Next year, I will be taking AP Calculus AB, AP Biology, AP Lit, AP Macroeconomics and AP US Gov. I am contemplating adding 2-4 more AP Courses to boost my GPA further. I am also a Company Commander for the NJROTC Unit among several other leadership charges. I'm participating in two Virtual College programs with ND and USC, and I'm awaiting response from a third.

I already have a hectice schedule, but I can remove some free time to make room:)

Is it worth it?
