    I am in trouble, next year is junior year. I am stuck taking Korean 3 H and track, but I also want to take AP comp science, I need to drop a class. Should I just keep my classes the way they are? What happens if you take the APs in senior year?

    Track=class? I assume it's a PE class.

    It depends how many APs you're taking already. I always recommend taking 2 a year. Any more is difficult, less is looked down upon.

    First, you really need to provide much more information about your situation; eg, what courses have you take to date, and have you taken any of the "expected" courses, AP or otherwise? If you check the catalogue or go to <www.usna.edu/Admissions> you will find recommedated courses for prospects to take in high school; comp sci isn't one of the high priority courses. It would be much more productive for you to take algebra II, plane geometry, chemistry with lab, physics, pre-calculus, calculus, trigonometry, and grammar and composition - at the highest level at which they are offerred at your school, or a junior college. What happens if you are taking the desired courses during your senior year? Depends upon your preformance to that time. It is possible that you will be held up for your seventh semester transcript. It sounds to me that you need to meet with your guidance counselor and lay out a course of action that will make it possible to get the courses which you will be expected to have taken. Best wishes.

    Trig, English 3, (I got a c in honors), Chem H, Korean 2 H, Us history, Track
    (JV distance)
    I received c's because of my personal reasons, a lot of events are occurring in my life right now. And my parents are being negative right now.
    I have a choice I can take AP comp science and have at least 1 AP.....A lot of students are more competitive then me in my school. I have to drop a class to take AP comp science... Thanks for the advises.

    The only classes that matter for plebe year are Chemistry, Calculus, English, and History. If you are fluent in these subjects, your plebe year will be a very comfortable time...
