As I have come into my junior year of high school I have found that managing my time and the academic difficulty of my classes has been a huge road block for me. I am taking Chemistry, Leadership Development in Action, APUSH, Guidance Assisting, AP Lit/Comp, AP Environmental, Strength and Conditioning, and lastly Algebra II STEM. My current dilemma with this is that math is my weakest subject and I currently have a C- in the class. I have a strong feeling I will keep a consistent C in it, I am just wondering if I should drop Algebra II STEM and go to Algebra II non-STEM. Really the only difference between the 2 are that in STEM we have extra projects like posters and Power Points over math subjects and non-STEM is just like any other math class. I know that I'm not going to get a solid answer of if this will make or break my Academy application, that's not really what I'm asking. I am more wondering if it would be better to make the decision to drop and explain that math isn't my best subject during interviews, or just take the C in the higher level class and have it bring down the GPA.
