Scheduling for Junior Year
Just to give some background, next Friday, my school is going to start scheduling for our junior year. Most Juniors in my school take 3 AP classes, Gov, Bio, and Lang. I definitely want to take Government and Lang, but I am debating over whether or not I should take AP Bio or AP Psychology. My dream school is Notre Dame, and I want to apply early as a Psychology major. I feel like in AP Bio I won't really have a chance to participate in the class because I am not really confident in science classes. I also think that it would look really good on an application to have a letter of recommendation from an AP Psych teacher when I want to major in Psychology.
However, here's the catch. I want to take math all through high school, but my school only offers AP Calculus, not standard level. Therefore, in my senior year, I do not want to take on too many difficult classes, but the bright side is that if I get into ND early, I will not have to show them my grades from the second and third trimesters of senior year. I will bring it up to my counselor when I meet with her, but I was wondering if anyone could give me any advice on what I should do.
Thank you and have a wonderful day!
Earn karma by helping others:
I would suggest that you do the following:
1. Take some dual-enrollment classes at your community college or state college
2. Take a outlier.org college course
3. Take a eDx.org class like RICE AP BIO series
4. Self study and sign up for the AP exams
Hope that helps
