Taking Linear Algebra senior year or taking AP Computer Science AB?

Do whatever you enjoy.

*Linear Algebra if you want to major in math - though calculus is generally a pre-req for it, you don't really need much (or any) calc to survive the class - it's more the extra experience in math. This is a good course to take at the college level if you're in high school.

*AP Computer Science (not sure, never took it) if you want to major in computer engineering - though I would recommened, boring as it can be, linear algebra instead. Engineers are required to take differential equations, which is similar in many respects to linear algebra, so it will help you out more in colliegate sciences.

I don't think I'll particularly enjoy either one, but I want to go into pre-med, and since most people don't get up to linear algebra in high school while tons of people get up to AP computer science...
Is linear algebra going to help me? Do colleges really like to see it on a transcript (its taught at my high school)?

I think Linear Algebra is harder than AP Comp. and hence more impressive. =)
