Do colleges prefer AP or Dual Enrollment credits?

I'm a sophmore at Lakeview Centennial and my school has a dual credit program that I am currently. I would like to know if i should take AP instead of DC and also what colleges do not take Dual Credit transfers.

Some universities, not all don't consider certain dual enrollment classes to be as impressive as AP, because the course 'rigor' isn't the same. I don't recommend taking dual enrollment at least for your sophomore year, because the way the class is taught is very do-it-yourself type. There is no teacher to which you could raise your hand- they just give you the work and expect completion. Get a rhythm for what your work ethic is and how you ration your time and scheduling so you can best transition from learning in a classroom environment to an college environment.
