We have read here and elsewhere that if you've taken an AP course in a subject in high school and are able to level up in your freshman year of college, you should do that. DS specifically asked his USNA Admissions counselor and he said that unless you are absolutely sure that you will do very well in the class, you should not level up. He said "you may not be challenged, but you'll have a better chance of getting a good grade." He added "if you level up and get a sub-standard grade or drop the class, that doesn't reflect well for the admissions board." DS is able to level up in World History, English Comp, Chemistry and Calculus. But he is going to a relatively challenging college (Texas A&M in Nuclear Engineering). Opinions?
