Wait, if you are taking precalc your junior year, and learning calculus 3 your senior year, you would not only be skipping Calc BC, but also Calc AB! That seems pretty foolish in my opinion. I don't mean to insult your math prowess or anything, but if you self teach yourself the equivalent to Calc 1 and 2 over a summer, you aren't going to get a good grasp of the basics that you will need later in your education. I know it seems like a good idea to take calc 3 to get into a top notch university, but you also need to look at the long term ramifications of skipping 2 core math classes, especially since neither of your 2 high school classes taken so far are rigorous in comparison to Calculus.
