I need your help. I was planning on taking a nice course load of 6 APs next year--- but I have just been given the opportunity to take a clg course at Lehigh University (a nice local university if you're unfamiliar with it) for free. To take this course, and still handle the 7+ officer positions I have, I think I'd need to drop my science - AP Environmental Science. I am only taking this course because A) its easy B) its AP and C) most colleges like 4 years of science. I'll be taking AP Govt and AP Econ in school, but I am DEFINITELY going to major in business, and I'd like to take Econ at Lehigh U. as well....

so is it stupid to take 2 econ courses? I think it might be a little redundant, but I'll do really well in both and they'll be I'll learn a lot more and be an econ pro.

but should I take the 4 sciences that Harvard and MIT recommend?

I'm looking at Wharton & Harvard mostly.

pleeeaseee post ANY advice asap! (form for class is due tomorrow)

take a college class. you'll probably learn more and it will look better on your ap. Well it might not look "better" but at least it's a little different. You're also more likely to get college credit for it.

nah APs are better...i have both and i wish i had taken more APs over college classes...
college classes are not as hard, but AP shows u know everything...atleast schools like berkeley and Stanford prefer APs...

Don't drop the AP Environmental Science but do drop the AP Econ. Don't take two of the same courses - use the college course to take something different. If Econ. is required at your school, see if you can get credit for the college course instead.
