My DD is planning to apply next year for the Class of 2017. She takes AP classes in high school and the office just sent a bill for $167 to sit for two AP exams. My question is this: Since the exams are for determining college credit and the CGA does not factor that credit, is it necessary to incur this expense? She will still be required to take her instructor's in-class exam and have the AP credit on her transcript. Objee, I'd be particularly interested in hearing from you about this. P.S. I realize an appointment is not guaranteed, so it may be smart to pay for the AP exams anyway in case she wants to apply the credit to her back up school, but I strictly want to know how the CGA views this for now.
