I'm a HS sophomore. I wish to attend maybe Georgetown, Harvard, Yale, or Stanford. I definitely want to major in political science.
With College admission becoming more competivtive.How does my HS schedule look for this year and the next two.
Freshman Yr. (all were taking on college prep level)
World History I
Computer Apps/Health (they were semester courses
Honors English II
Honors Theology II
Honors Latin I
Biology(regular college prep)
Geometry(regular college prep)
Honors French III
Honors English III
Honors Theology III
Honors Latin II
Algebra II(regular college prep)
AP American History
Honors French IV
Honors Latin III
Honors Theology III
My frosh yr. average was a 93.8. I plan on getting involoved with ECs and taking on leadership postition in thoseand Student Gov't.
I'm going to surpass the community service req.
i going to a pretty competive hs. We have send many students 2 HYPS and many LACs. I got a 111 on PSAT Fresh yr. With this New SAT i probably get maybe between a 200-240. I ranked 36 out of like mid 200ish. i want to take Pre-Cal junior yr. but can't due to math-sci agreement. So i can't take Pre-Cal w/chemsitry. It has 2 be taken w physics. and u r not allowed 2 double up on math sci courses at my school. This is the most rigourous plan open. btw school offers only like 4 Aps these were the only was i can take &
i was thinking maybe take some college classes at local CC jr sr year.

Kudos on thinking about college early. If you can, you really should try to take Calculus before you get into college. I read about your conflict with math and sciences but I know that most colleges (high level or otherwise) want to see Calc in high school. Try to see if you could take it online or at a community college. Other than that, your classes look good. Work on having great ec's and test scores. Good luck with the college process.

I second what Flachica412 said. Without taking Calculus, you're chances are probably on the slim side. College classes at your local CC is a great idea!
