    Hello,

    I am a repeat student, so I did two sophomore years when I transfered schools. I never was the strongest in science classes, while a I took honors bio, honors chem and honors physics I got B’s/B-‘s. Because I repeated I had completed the sciences needed as a graduation requirement so I dropped it this year, but now I’m starting to worry if it’s going to affect me when I apply. I dropped the science to add another language. I love languages and want to pursue them, so now I take the highest level of Chinese offered at my school and third highest in French. As a junior, I can add a science next year, which if it would look better on my transcript I totally will.

    Any thoughts? Again, languages is something I’ve always been interested in and loved and want to pursue them, but I’m of course willing to add another science if it’ll make me a stronger candidate for the SA’s.

    Thanks!

    USAFA is a STEM school and favors those who excel in STEM. They also want you to take the highest-level courses your school has to offer. So at many schools, that would be AP Chemistry and AP Physics. Languages are nice, but USAFA values STEM more.
