Im in the 8th grade taking algebra, im going to take Geometry-Trig in 9th, algebra II is 10th, HOPEFULLY accelerated calculus in 11th, but if not, ill take advanced mathematics. and then somesort of advanced calculus if i do accelerated or just plain calculus I if I go the normal advanced mathmatics way for 12th. My question is this: Is it a huge advantage/disadvantage to skip a year in mathematics when applying for an ivy league or a very prestigious university? (For example if I was taking geometry this year would it make much of a difference) or do they (admissions committies at colleges) look more at the pure SAT scores. Thanks!
