    Hello,

    What should i take my senior of high school? AP statistics, or calc? Which would the academy prefer to see? Also, should i take AP 11 (English) for my senior year? or holocaust? (both are English credits)

    If you can take both stats and calc, definitely do so. There are about 15 people I know that did it this year, so it is definitely doable. Not sure about the English, what is "holocaust"?

    I was just saying that I have never seen an English course with that name.

    no he asked what the class that is called :holocaust: is.



    But anyways. I'm asuming we are talking about AP Calc AB\BC Take both if you want to work your *** off. But I had the choice and I went with AP Calc AB. (BC was not offered). You learn a lot of stuff in AP Calc and pretty much cover the statistics curriculum... I think? Not too many kids going to the Academy take AP Calc which means taking it sets you apart from the pack.

    Also Take AP Lit for english. Idk what AP 11 is or "Holocaust" but definetly take an AP eng class. That being said, take as many AP classes as you can.

    I did 4 my senior year. 2 were accelerated double AP classes. So it was like taking 6. Just take as many as you canThey're not that much work. You'll do fine, just put the time in when you have to and relax when you can. Thats what I did and I was able to keep Bs\B+s with almost no HW, but there were nights before tests that i put in many hours. It will be good experience for when you have to prioritise and choose what HW has to get done at USAFA (atleast I hope).

    I'd suggest Calculus also, but English doesn't matter. Holocaust sounds like an interesting course. I'd take it.

    i took AP calc AB. not fun but doable. I'd suggest taking it. hope i validate calc 1 at USAFA. Also took AP lit and comp. that was easier in my opinion at least. but definitely take both if you can. Admissions weighs AP classes higher than honors or regular, so it'll help your USAFA reconfigured GPA if you do well. If not, it still shows that you pushed yourself and were willing to challenge yourself senior year.

    okay, sounds good!

    and to answer a few of the questions above, my school has a class on the holocaust itself, it's counted as an English credit, and can only be taken as a senior.
