Applying to Cornell engineering without Physics and Calculus?

My school does not have Physics at all, and Calculus conflicts with AP Literature. I really want to take AP Lit but I am going into engineering most likely so if I miss Calculus that would be pretty bad. I found a pre-college class at UPenn that offers Calculus but it is a review class and it is not...

ACT Improvement or AP Tests: Which Is More Important Junior Year?

I’m a junior taking five AP classes this year, and I currently have a 33 ACT score. If I want to maximize my chances of getting merit scholarships for college, should I focus more on improving my ACT score a couple of points or earning high AP scores?
