Top 3 for me!

Bar by my school has it on draft, $2 on Tuesdays and Thursdays for a pint... people wonder where my gut and bottom 25% school performance come from.

I hope all the GMs that made him an offer call his agent and take back their offers. Fight fire with fire.

Today was the day I turned the card in. I decided to drop AP US History today. And I took Biomedical Science instead. I was told that APUSH was all writing and reading, which I hate. I also realized I didn't want to go too in depth with US History. I asked my teachers and they basically said you shouldn't be taking an AP class unless you plan on using them in college or if you are interested in them. That basically set it in stone for me. I had been stressing the entire weekend and I hope I made the right choice. I've been wondering for the entire day if I made the right decision.

I need some perspective on if I made the right decision or not. Thanks again guys.

I wish I knew I listened to people when I was your age. HAVE FUN. Obviously work hard enough to do well enough that you're happy with your grades, but most importantly, have fun; do new things, explore different careers, make lasting relationships. You'll realize 5 years from now, taking an AP/ not taking it really doesn't matter, at all.

In regards to colleges, don't trip. It's all about what you put into it and the connections you make. You can go to Stanford or Chico (I'm from Cali, what would the equivalent be for NC? Duke and something like Coastal Carolina) and be successful/happy/miserable either way.

Edit: I took 5 APs Jr year, and ended up at the same school as one of my classmates that took 2. My roommate took 11 APs. You'll see when you apply that admissions is really random.

Schools push you to take APs because they get more funding. AP classes are absolute bs and can actually mess you up in college. For example my friend took AP Chem so he got placed in Chem 1B instead of 1A. He not only had a bad foundation because you don't really learn at the same level as college classes, and he missed out on an easy A in Chem 1A. Similarly you'll most likely get credit for GEs in college with your AP classes which are once again easy As compared to your major core classes which will hurt your college GPAs, which is more important than what college you get into.

I recommend only taking the number of APs you can handle and are genuinely interested in. A 3.5 with APs doesn't look better than a 3.8 in normal classes. I'd focus on crushing the SAT instead.

Edit: super pro tip- if you're interested in grad school, I wouldn't necessarily go to the "best" school you get into. college GPA is VERY important for most grad school programs. If you do better than your classmates it's easier for you to stand out, and qualify for summer programs/internships to make your résumé look better.
