Question by super monkey: Course load for high school?
I’m planning my high school courses with my counselor and I’m a freshmen. I want to go to very selective colleges like ivy leagues or Stanford My school limits AP classes to 3 per year not including Freshmen year. Total number of AP classes I can take is 9.
Freshmen (currently taking)
Ancient History Honors
Spanish 3 Honors
Algebra 2 Honors
AP European History
AP Computer Science
Spanish Conversation (semester)
Film making in Spanish (semester)
Ethics 10 (required semester)
Photography and Video Production 1
AP US History
AP Calculus BC
Spanish 4 Honors
Forensic Science (semester class)
Photography 2 (semester class)
AP Physics C
Multi-variable Calculus Honors
AP Spanish Language
Literature and Film
I’m pretty sure I want to major in finance or economics but things can change. How does this sound? Also do you think I should take the AP exam in economics, so I don’t need to take intro classes in college.
Literature and Film is an English class

When senior year rolls around, check the colleges you are most likely going to go to and see what credit they actually give for those AP tests. I took AP Macro last year, and it didn’t do anything for me at my university.
Many schools require 4 years of English in high school, so you should be taking it senior year as well.
