Hi, I'm currently a Freshman:

Next Year, the classes I'm ABSOLUTELY taking are:

AP Calculus BC
AP European History
PreAP English II
PreAP Chemistry I
PreAP French II
Journalism ( Very likely to be Editor-in-Chief of School Newspaper)

Now, there are three classes which I'm debating over:

PreAP Computer Science Programming
Basketball (I played this year on the Freshman Varsity Team)
AP Biology (Double up on science classes)

Anyway, I can't think of what to take. And my ECs are rather busy:

Vice President, Key Club
Historian, Sun Club
Class Representative, MultiCultural Club
Member, FCCLA
Member, French Club
Member, Mu Alpha Theta (Honors Math Club)
Member, S.A.D.D.
School Newspaper (Staff Writer)
Tutoring, Mondays and Tuesdays
Freshman Varsity Basketball
Piano (8 yrs so far)
Chinese School

Sorry for making you guys read through all that. Can you tell me what I should choose as far as courseload is concerned? Oh, and I'm a HUUUUUUGE procrastinator. :)

Well, do you want to take AP Java? If you do, you should probably take the "pre-ap" prerequisite as a sophomore rather than as a junior.

I would advise the computer course because you'll already be plenty busy with two AP classes as a sophomore, and taking a basketball course at school is an utter waste of your time.

It's not a basketball course. It's the school team.

FIrst of all Azn Cowboy, ur spreading urself way too thin in all those ECs. Do just a few good ones and shine in those, not like 15 okay ones. but u should do basketball, because colleges love to see sports. However, take into consideration all ur workload. Ultimately, only u know whats best. Best of Luck!

Well, first of all, may I be the first to say that you must be the messiah, for only he who has come to save us could possibly be able to be historian of the SUN CLUB! BEHOLD THE RADIENCE OF THE SUN CLUB! HAHAHA! IT IS A CLUB OF THE SUN! Go to Harvurd and have a nice life, SUN BOY!!!
