Inspired by a similar current thread. Would USNA care if DS as a Senior takes a General Chemistry for engineers course at a community college instead of AP Chem? AP Chem is 90 minutes every day for the entire year; whereas, the General Chemistry is a typical college course that is scheduled 3x per week plus 1 lab per week and is over in 1 semester. DS has taken 5 science courses thus far at the HS which includes 2 levels of physics (AP and honors) and honors chemistry. There are no additional AP Physics courses offered at the HS. Lastly, AP Chem teacher is a good person and is funny, but not a good instructor. The thought of taking this course every day with this teacher is something son wishes to avoid. Son took honors chemistry with the teacher and did get an A, but felt he learned a considerable amount on his own via a college textbook and Khan Academy. Thank you in advance for your thoughts.
