Senior Year Class Suggestions?
I am currently planning my schedule for next year (senior year) and need some advice on what classes to take. I go to a small, rural high school and would love to attend a Top 20/Ivy university. My junior year schedule is:
AP English Language & Composition
Spanish III Honors - Northwestern University Gifted Program
AP United States Government & Politics
I am thinking about taking AP English Literature & Composition, AP Calculus and AP Macro/Microeconomics in addition to at least three other undecided classes. I would love some suggestions on what to take next year :) I intend to pursue a business major if that helps. Thanks!
Earn karma by helping others:
For your undecided classes - if your school offers AP Spanish it might be a great choice for you because it seems like you are skilled in Spanish (from the Northwestern University Gifted Program) and might help you get out of a college language requirement at whichever school you end up going to. Or if you're interested in taking Spanish in college, AP Spanish might help you skip up a level in college.
And then for your other two classes I would say anything you're interested in! Maybe a science class like psychics? Or an art class like ceramics?
The Economics, English, and Calculus classes you already have mentioned will help you build foundational skills you need for business. But if you want to explore business more, and have the options in your school, you could consider marketing, business, psychology, or computer programming - those would all be great!
3-4 AP's might be a tough schedule to manage (you know yourself best) so maybe balance out with some other fun classes.
