So, this will be my 3rd year in a row applying for the Naval Academy. I applied straight out of high school, didn't get in. I then went to the University of Massachusetts at Amherst, took English, History, Calculus, Chemistry and received the recommended grades in all those classes but yet was turned down once again. I am taking another chemistry course this summer to show my dedication to the Naval Academy and doing whatever I can to better my chances. Next year I am enrolled in Physics I with a lab, Calc II, a history course, and a language course. My question here is: there are two different Physics courses that I am able to take, Physics 131 and Physics 151. Both have labs. Here is the description for: Physics 131: Basic physical laws governing mechanics, heat, and sound; examples and applications from the biological sciences. Arithmetic, high school algebra, and basic trigonometry required. The recommended introductory physics course for majors in the biological sciences and related areas. and Physics 151: Kinematics, vectors and scalars, Newton's laws of motion, work and energy, impulse and momentum. Conservation laws. Collisions, oscillations, rotational dynamics, waves and sound, fluids. Use of calculus in physics; problem-solving methods. I am confused as to what to take?! Both are science courses and both are deemed to be challenging courses at UMass and not basic General Education classes but classes that Engineering majors take. Any guidance with this will help. Thank you!
