Hey all, I am currently a freshman in high school, and am thinking about my courses for next year. Currently I am signed up for: English 3 Honors Chemistry Honors Precalculus Honors AP Statistics AP World History Programming 1 Honors (prerequisite for AP Comp Sci) Spanish 3 Honors Orchestra Masterclass (want to stick with this all 4 years) Many of my peers are taking AP Biology next year, a class which takes up two spaces in our schedule, instead of Precalculus, what I am doing. I am currently taking Biology Honors and am completely fed up with the electron transport chain/DNA replication garbage that we have to memorize–no offense to anyone, by the way ^_^. I find chemistry, physics, and computer science way more interesting due to their mathematical natures, and plan on majoring in either CS for software engineering (most likely this) or Materials Engineering (I play lots of tennis, and engineering rackets at Babolat/Head is my dream job). Either way, despite AP Biology I still plan on taking AP Comp Sci & AP Chem my junior year and AP Physics C my senior year. My only worry is how I will be looked at by colleges for taking Precalculus over AP Bio my sophomore year when compared to other students from my school. I am shooting for UIUC, UC Berkeley, UMich and Carnegie Mellon, as well as South Carolina Honors in state. Do you guys have any feedback for my plan? Am I making a mistake for not taking a second year of Biology? Thanks so much for all your help, guys. Sorry for sounding a bit paranoid.
