    My daughter is seriously considering dropping AP Biology after she returns from Christmas break. Among other things, the teacher is abominable and my husband and I are fine with her decision. However, before she does, I wanted to get some feedback on how this might be perceived by admissions. Should daughter contact her admissions counselor at the academy before dropping the class?

    Current Classes
    AP Chem
    AP Physics
    AP Cal
    AP Euro History
    AP English
    AP Art
    AP Biology
    +2 other classes

    Any thoughts and opinions are appreciated. :smile:

    Dropping class....

    Man, that a heavy course load. She must be one smart young lady. With a course load like this, she should be fine.

    Merry Christmas,

    Dropping a course is fine if it doesn't show up on the 7th semester transcript. Otherwise, ask admissions.

    Thanks. Spoke with daughter's liaison today and he said it wouldn't be a problem, but he is going to make some phone calls and get back to me. He did ask if the class would show up on the 7th semester transcript. I will meet with the academic dean after break and see if the class will show up.
