Is two AP Classes enough for Senior Year?
Am aiming for top 20 schools (mainly UC Berkeley College of Engineering)
Classes are AP Chemistry and AP Physics C.
Additional AP classes offered available to me are AP Lit and AP Bio.
Forgot to mention that I am doing Community College Classes side by side with high school courses.
IE I am doing courses like Bio 1, English 1B, Statistics at the Community college, not at high school.

How does karma work?
The system is simple: you receive karma (sort of like a credit) when you help others. If you're short on karma, you can do any of the following to earn more:
- 1 karma for each 👍 upvote on a question you post
- 1 karma for each 👍 upvote on an answer you post
if your answer is marked accepted
- 10 karma for reviewing an essay
- 10 karma if your essay review is rated 5 ⭐️
You can then use your karma to submit an essay for review or guarantee an expert answer on Q&A.
Top 20 colleges like Berkeley are going to expect you to take the most rigorous curriculum available at your high school, so I agree with @sanrad's suggestion that taking additional APs would give you a better shot. That said, you shouldn't overextend yourself to a point where it would affect the quality of your work in those classes, so if you feel like 4 APs is too much, maybe adding AP Bio but passing on AP Lit (since engineering schools will care more about AP sciences) would be the way to go.
