I go to an alternative school and we do not have AP/Honors. Our counselors do send a letter saying that many of our classes are AP/Honors level, but I feel that can only do so much.
The letter also states that we are able to take APs @ other schools. However, I don't have a car, and when I get one I will only be able to take one class do to scheduling.

I am going into my junior year & I have a 3.9, am 5/50, take most challenging classes, have a 1370SAT1 ( am retaking -- projected=1450 - 1500. (based on practice SATs)
By the time I graduate I will have taken through CALC 3 in local college, my ECs are ok

After all this my question is: How much will the lack of APs hurt my chances @ selective schools? Can a college hold me accountable for something that is not easily accessed?

If your classes are truly AP level, you should take AP tests to show that that's true.

Good point, I will take the AP Calc AB (& BC next year). Also will take some. Great idea... Thanks

If you have the colelge credit in calc already, you don't need to take the AP calc test.

Oh yeah, but for my junior year my Calc 1 will be @ my highschool, so I will for that one anyway
