    If ive already taken Dual Enrolled DEVELOPMENTAL PSYCHOLOGY last year..... Should I take AP European History or just AP PSYCHOLOGY?

    Is admissions going to think that I shouldnt have taken two classes that are pretty similar in nature?

    Please give a direct answer, not one like "they just want to see you try to do your best, and dont forget you need a congressional nomination too"

    My suggestion would be to contact ADMISSIONS or your RC, MALO, or FFR and ask for guidance. That is where your best information will come from.

    I also don't think I would ask for an answer to a question in a forum that is gracious and always willing to help and then give a flippant "but don't answer my question this way." :mad:

    For what it is worth, and based from our son's experience as a Cow this year, a 5 on the AP test for both AP European History and AP US History will likely validate you for these two plebe classes and push you into the Cow level Art of War history class during your plebe year. This opens up two classes for you later in your Cow / Firstie year when you don't have to take Art of War since you have already taken it. This progression gives you the chance to add an extra class to your major or a time slot for research.

    I know a couple of people who took psychology before they got here, and still had to take advanced psychology their plebe year. On the other hand, there is no European history here, only U.S. and regional histories that coincide with one's language, so neither may grant you a validation, but the advanced psychology teacher who is a civilian and will probably be here should you get accepted is extremely nice and made class enjoyable. I would go with AP psychology, unless you want to be a history major.

    Alright, I have signed up for the AP psychology class because I feel it is a class that admissions would like more than a history, its just that Ive taken a previous psychology class(Developmental) and I dont want them to think I took 2 of the same class as opposed to a schedule with more variety...
    Thanks guys for the answers though.
