I appologize in advance for the length. I have a rather hard decision to make. My problem is this; I would like to take AB Calculus next year to prepare for USNA, however I will have to sacrifice other classes in order to take it. I would like to take classes I consider pertinent to my academy career but I am already sacrificing them to some extent. The problem is really that in order to take AB cal there is a mandatory lab. Cal is an AP credit and the lab is honors in terms of weighted GPA. Unlike BC cal, it is not double blocked for two AP weightings. My question really is what do you think is the best of my three choices: 1. Take the AB Cal and drop (in parentheses is why I want to take it): Psychology (for personal reasons and insight into the leadership/ethics), Human Anatomy and Physiology (to be used as a Bio review), Digital Electronics (may not be offered but is like intro to Electrical Engineering), or German 4 Honors (I will most likely not be able to take German at USNA.) If this choice which do you recommend I keep? 2. Forget about Cal and take AP Statistics. I have no idea if this will be helpful to me at NA. I’m considering it because it is not double blocked and is the only other challenging math course available. Is it worth my time, will I use/need statistics? 3. Forget about Math and take three useful electives. I don’t really like this idea. I think I should take a math, however, I do have 5 math credits including pre-cal, but I’m in advanced not honors. A few additional notes, due to scheduling conflicts and involvements I can not take summer school to free up room in my regular schedule; I may be able to get the lab waved but do not know yet; I am currently in a lab (for pre-cal) and do not find it useful; my other classes which I WILL NOT give up are English, History, and Physics (I need all of those to graduate, I don’t need calculus) and JROTC. Sorry this was so long, thanks in advance.
