AP Research or AP Lang?

Hey all,

I am in the process of choosing my classes that I want for my schedule this upcoming school year. One of my classes, AP Research, depended on if I passed AP Seminar or not. I did get the qualifying score for AP Seminar so I'm cleared to take AP Research. After doing some research, I'm not sure if AP Research is right for me, and I am thinking of transferring to AP Lang. I want to be a biology major (to become an orthopedic surgeon). In the long run, which class would be better for me to take? I understand that taking AP in general is showing colleges that I like to challenge myself, but would AP Research look better as in undergrad you do partake in some research? Thanks in advance! :)
