That is a monstrous curriculum. AP Lang, Psych, and USH at the same time(trust me, I've tried) will crush your dreams, let alone AP African and AP Research. If you plan on taking the AP exams for all of them, I suggest you tone it down a little unless you are 100% confident in yourself. The courses themselves are suited for your major, although I'd suggest taking at least AP Calc AB if you plan on applying to T20.

These courses look pretty aligned with your intended major and I would say they are pretty good. Just keep in mind that you will have quite a lot of coursework/homework on your hands and end of the year studying for AP tests during AP season will be pretty brutal. I would highly recommend getting done with your research paper as soon as possible so that you can use the spare time in your research class for studying for other classes.
