I'm just curious if the fact that I skipped a few levels in a few subjects would be appealing on my application. It's one of those situation where if it does, great, but if it doesn't I'm no worse off than when I started. I'll give the list of the courses where this applies;
Freshman Year:
Spanish I

Sophomore Year:
Spanish III (skip spanish II part I and II part II)
Algebra II (took pre-cal over the following summer, so this probably doesn't count)

Junior Year:
AP Spanish 1 (skipped spanish IV)
AP Calculus

Senior Year:
Physics II (skip physics I)
German II (skip german I)

Well, it might not at a really competitive school. B/c a lot of students have skipped whole grade levels and got an early start (7th grade) in their maths and foreign languages. That's what i did. But i don't expect it to give me too much of a competive edge at top schools. So you shouldn't depend so much on the fact that you skipped levels alone.
