My daughter was called down to the guidance office yesterday and told that she had multiple conflicts in her Senior scheduling. Unfortunately our HS typically only offers one section of every AP course. Her requested schedule had her taking AP English, AP Calc BC, AP Economics, AP Physics, Wind Ensemble (Principal Horn in a nationally recognized ensemble), AP Art History (for fun), AP German and PE (required). Unfortunately there were so many conflicts and she couldn't work AP Physics into her schedule (nor could she fit AP Bio or AP Chem the only other AP sciences offfered next school year). The way our school works is that Honors level in those three lab sciences have to be taken prior to taking the AP version so she will graduate without an AP level science. The honors versions are actually very rigorous just for the record. This year she is in Honors Physics for reference. Anyway, she also had a conflict with the AP Art History class but that is less of a concern. Bottom line her new schedule looks like this: AP English, AP Calc BC, AP Economics, AP German, AP US Gov, Honors Anatomy & Physiology (in conjunction w/ a local university), Wind Ensemble, PE. Will it hurt her application not to be taking an AP level science in her senior year? Does this schedule meet the challenging level that the CGA is looking for? She's very concerned but she couldn't give up her musical instrument that she's been playing for 8 years in order to take an AP science course. She's committed so much time, practice and heart into this instrument. It's really a difficult situation.
