I am a college re-applicant. In the personal data packet, which I submitted last week, the current course selection included a list of spring semester courses that I plan on taking. My current class schedule is as follows: -Chemistry with lab -Calculus 1 -Technical Writing (APed out of literature) -Origin of Ideas (Required as part of my college program) -Introduction to Honors (Required as part of my college program) It's 15 credit hours. I'm in a honors program at my college, thus the required classes. One question I have is whether I should let the Academy know that these classes are required by the university. I don't want them to think I'm taking wimpy classes. My second semester choices that I submitted are as follows: -Physics with calculus and lab -Calculus 2 -Introduction to Programming -Origin of Ideas (required) -Introduction to Honors (required) This choice is 17 credits. My main concern is the programming course I am planning to take. Because of my AP scores I have no remaining history class requirements for my university. Should I stick with the programming class or find a humanities or history class I should take? The other question I had referred to the personal statement. Keep in mind that I've already submitted the data packet. The personal statement I submitted was a revised version of the one I submitted last year. Today I just read that the Academy wants a completely new essay. The problem is not writing a new essay. The problem is that I've already submitted the old essay. Should I just write a new essay and then contact admissions with the new statement or am I stuck?
