Hello all,
I currently have to choose between taking either AP biology or regular physics. I am already taking AP chemistry and a few other APs, but was wondering if the academies prefer to see physics or AP biology on a transcript. Btw, I am going into junior year and have already taken Honors chem and bio.
Thanks for your input!

Recommendation from USNA is to have physics and chemistry for sciences completed. Since you are a rising junior, if you complete physics would it allow you to complete AP physics sernior Year?

That is correct. If I take physics this year, I can take AP physics senior year.

That would be the path that most of us with USNA ties would recommend. Not sure on the other SAs.
