If I'm planning on majoring in Biology when I get to college, should I take AP Calculus AB or BC as a junior? (At my school, you can't take bot...

My School's Misleading Profile

My school doesn't actually offer any AP classes, but our school does put that they do offer AP classes on their school profile because they offer AP classes online (classes that are known by only like 10% of the students and don't help prepare for the ap exam). Will colleges know that the courses we...

AP classes for Ivy League Hopefuls

I read Allen's article on getting into Harvard (http://blog.prepscholar.com/how-to-get-into-harvard-and-the-ivy-league-by-a-harvard-alum) and the graph it included seemed to suggest that anything beyond 4 APs does not benefit an application that muc...

Hi, I want to be competitive for top colleges, but I feel like I will retake my AP exams for those. These were from my 9th grade, and I'm going to 10th. In AP Bio, I got a 3, and in AP Human Geo, I got a 4. I'm not satisfied with either-- Bio is one of my interests and perhaps future major, and a 3 ...

AP Course grade or AP Scores, which is more important?

From what I've read, most good colleges don't care much about scores on AP exams - they care about how well students do in the AP course (which isn't affected by how well the students do on the exam). You can choose whether or not to report AP scores to a college. Plus, fewer colleges are accepting ...

My school does not have Physics at all, and Calculus conflicts with AP Literature.

The next level of math that my high school offers is AP Statistics. I'm a couple of years ahead in math, so there are literally no other classes available to me.

Is it a good idea to do research in high school?

I have an opportunity to do research at a university, but I won't be able to take morning classes at my high school. This means throughout high school I will have only 5 AP classes and a lower weighted GPA. Is this trade off worth it?
