Just need some advice here. I am an eighth grader and had recently forecasted for my high school classes. My high school offers both College English and AP English. I am unsure which class to take during my senior year. Does anybody know what colleges prefer – College or AP? Any advice would be appreciated.

Take AP, you don't have a guarantee that a college class will transfer, though most will, and almost all colleges will accept a good AP score.

You've got 3 years before you have to choose - plenty of time to hear from others at your school about their experiences with the courses offered. If one course is taught by a great teacher and the other is an awful teacher, that could be a much bigger point than dual-credit vs. AP.

Hey whats better to take? AP Calc in HS or go to a university? I've asked all my top choice colleges if they would take the transfer and they all said yes, with the exception of 1. So i guess it comes down to where would i learn more at? HS or College? Your help is appreciated.

SO what's your plan for high school courses?
I'd say that you'll probably get a better education in a college than in a high school unless the high school math teacher is really super, so take Calc at a CC over the summer or something.
