I have no idea, but checkout mymajors.com - you might be able to get some ideas there.
my father is a web developer, and he doesn’t use math AT ALL in his job (the last time he used calc was in college), but his courses were still really calc heavy when he was getting his degree.
I would say go with AP calc if you plan on majoring in comp sci. Statistics, to colleges (and like everybody else), is not really math.
Don’t get me wrong, you use math in stats and I LOVE the class, but compared to precal and like… the math on the SAT subject tests and the SATs, it’s NOTHING like that. It is definitely more literature based (all the answers on my AP exams were at least a few sentences long, coupled with graphs), than math.
Taking AP Calc will definitely be more impressive on your application, but by all means… you can take stats and take calc in college. OR, you can get calc over with now, and even if you don’t do so well in it, take it again in college and calc will seem a lot easier because you went through it before. ^^
… then again, you still have time to decide on your major; you may decide that comp sci is not for you, and major in something completely different! Don’t feel stressed out… especially for senior year. If you feel like you want the competitive edge, take calc. If you’re not confident that you can score super well in calc and you want to take something more to your strengths, then take stats! It’s not a decision that will make you or break you. <3
well, hopefully you’ve learned something from the class anyways so it’s not a total waste of time. (:
Yes, you’d probably have to take some form of lit in college, but if you learned a lot from AP lang, hopefully you can apply some of that in the college class, and the class will seem easy to you!
awe glad you found us!!
I took Psych last year—expect lots of vocab and, depending on the teacher, discussions. It was interesting, but it wasn’t my all time favorite class. (still liked it, though!) AP test is probably one of the easiest. :3 If you’re pretty good with studying, then you should be totally fine in that class.
I also took AP Spanish for a few weeks. I took it online and ended up dropping the class because it was too much on top of my other APs. I definitely would not suggest taking it online because the opportunities to speak are very, very few (once a week). And the AP test (as well as a lot of my assignments) were speaking-based. I took Spanish for three years before this and never really enjoyed it anyways, so it definitely wasn’t the class for me. (: you may feel differently!
I’m taking econ this year, so no advice on that, yet. (:
Hope this helps!

Congratulate yourself on any and all your AP scores!! You all tried your hardest and we here at the AP life are so proud of you!!! <3
"if you’re so stressed out from school why don’t you just study more or take fewer classes??"
