Admissions Advice

Should I take AP Stats or AP Calc BC after taking AP Calc AB? I am aiming for a career in healthcare.

I'm having a REALLY hard time choosing my senior-year math classes. I just took AP Calc AB for my junior year, and I originally signed up for AP Stats for my senior year since it's not as rigorous as BC, but I'm concerned I'll forget all my Calc knowledge if I take Stats. (FYI: I'm hoping to become either a doctor or pharmacist in the future)

However, calculus doesn't come naturally to me, so although I can be successful in the class, it would take up A LOT of my time. I have about 3 leadership extracurriculars and 3 other APs for next year, so I don't know if taking AP Calc would be a mistake. I also want to seem competitive for college apps, though, so I am having a really hard time deciding.

Which class should I take?
