    For the OP a good question though - whats the ultimate goal for the class load?

    Let us know what your counselor says. :P

    I took a mixture of all AP and IB classes - as many IB as I could and the rest AP. I didn't find it worth it, honestly. I think I should have spent more time working on my art and less time stressing out over essays. I got some college credit but not enough given the suffering. I hated high school!

    But that's not to say you won't love it. Just - it's not always worth it when you get to college, unless you already know the path you want to take and how those courses are going to help you. I'd be more inclined to take the APs that are in your most interested fields and just do Honors for the rest.

    edit - what @Rajah says below, exactly. Wish I'd focused more on my own wants and needs and less on achievement for achievement's sake.

    I took a boatload of AP and dual-enrollment courses... enough to knock a year off college. I wish I'd taken time to figure out what I wanted and what would make me a more well-rounded person instead of focusing on achievement for its own sake.

    When I was your age, I wouldn't have listened to this advice, though.


    I... suppose. Yeah!

    Everybody talk about being well rounded. I wonder what the significance of it is. If you can do your job/career/what you like in life well. Shouldn't you put all your energy into those and not mixing everywhere?
