I know this is somewhat of a trivial thing, but... I've been stuck on deciding whether or not to drop my AP English class. I'm a junior in high school. My GPA is 3.75 overall or 3.70 academic/Calgrant. I'm not exactly sure of my major, but I'm planning on Engineering, if not, something in the IT field. My goal is to get into UC's (or something of that level). My schedule this year: 1. Physics (Boring, unchallenging class, but AP is not an option) 2. Piano 2 (The class that gets me through the day) 3. English 3AP (The class in question) 4. Precalculus/Trigonometry 5. Engineering (Cal Poly sponsored program) 6. Chinese 2P (Gotta get my 2 years minimum...) Extracurriculars? Not much, but I recently started directing a small film group with the support of the new video production program in my school, and we've released 2 films that created enough hype for people to walk up to me and say "Your film was awesome!", however, we haven't done anything in months since I'm either too busy with schoolwork or too busy dealing with personal issues. Other than, I haven't been in any real clubs or such. I know I WILL NOT ace the AP English class. No one walks out of that class with an A unless their work is truly excellent. At best I'll muster a B (Although I'll easily ace a normal English class). Stack this with the fact I spend 3 hours afterschool on Monday and Wednesdays prepping for the SAT's (on practice tests, I score about 1950), I'm worried I'm going to lose all willpower halfway through the year (my morale is pretty low already). What do you think? Would it be better for me to save up what little energy I have for say, SAT Prep, filming, or the engineering course, or take on the AP English? Or should I just plow through regardless?
