Which of the following AP Courses do you think illegal immigrant children should have in order(see below)?
to qualify for federal DREAM Act if it passes
AP U.S. History, World History, European History, Art History, US Politics
AP Environmental Science, Biology, Chemistry, Physics,
AP Computer Science
AP Calculus, Statistics
AP English Literature/ Spanish Literature
AP English Language/Spanish Language
AP (Chinese, French, Italian, German, Japanese) Language and Culture
AP Human Geography
AP Studio Art
AP Music Theory
@ownpool ,a score of 4 is good too.
I am asking for what courses you would like to see take assuming that DREAM ever passes
The DREAM Act may not pass soon ,but it will never die.
@PE2008, tax payers will not be paying for these course they will.
The same accounts for CLEP courses too/
Illegal Immigrants should not be taking *any* AP courses at public expense.
The "Dream Act", for those who don't know, is the legislation proposing that illegal immigrants be given taxpayer-subsidized college education. The next argument following the Dream Act will be that since they got a taxpayer-subsidized education, they should therefore get Permanent Residency (green cards). And since they will have green cards, only a mean country would deny them the right to sponsor their illegal parents also to get green cards.
Pretty soon, the entire Southwestern USA will look like Tijuana and be effectively Spanish-speaking.
Illegal Immigrant children should not be given taxpayer-subsidized education, at any level. The Supreme Court decision granting this right was a major blunder.
how to get All AP classes?
So im wondering about my next year schedual im maintaining a 3.83
AP World history
AP Literature and Compasition
So How can I achieve this goal??
The rest are just extra activities like Japanese and Art....
How can i convince my teachers to take all AP classes.
First off, there's no such thing as AP Pre-Calc, only AP Calculus AB/BC, Micro/Macroeconomics, and Computer Science under the AP Math section.
In order to get a heavy load of AP courses, you have to work hard in the ones that you're in now if any and then keep up your grades in all your other classes to prove that you can handle the workload. Particularly if you have a class like AP European History or AP U.S. History, doing well in those would bode well for trying to get into AP World History. Same goes for Science and English AP's.
Help Figuring Out Classes for College? Language or Study at Another School? ADVICE!?
Hi, so I am entering my second year of college and study art history as a major. I have to sign up for my classes and I was trying to decide what to do do my year.
Basically, I have to take 4 units. Three of those units are art history and one can be anything. At first I was thinking of taking an intercollegiate course so I could meet new people at a partner school of where I go, as my first year of college was not as successful in making friends.
Then, I thought I could take a language like Hindi or Chinese, which could help my career and interests with art, and just personally make me a more uplifting person. As an extension of this, I thought maybe I could just switch my major and do Art History with South Asian Studies or Chinese (whatever language I decided), so I could really focus on my studies in a language and make the most of it.
So what it boils down to is how I want to spend my year. I can take a course at another school and make new friends or I can study a language at my own school and make new friends that way. Please tell me your thoughts and also maybe you have any input as to what are some easy languages to learn, because Chinese could be really hard, and I could also do Burmese, Indonesian or Japanese....THANKS!
I think learning another language has many benefits, especially if you become fluent. It can open up more careers down the road too. I'm actually taking Latin this semester (which won't really help me with a career later lol) but I'm also teaching myself Korean since my University doesn't offer it.
If you're wanting to study abroad in college, I definitely suggest taking a foreign language.
Which AP classes are useful to take?
Which AP classes are useful to take? Which AP Class is easier to take in high school than in College? Which AP class do u recommend?
Chinese Language and Culture
Computer Science A
Computer Science AB
Comp Government & Politics
U.S. Government & Politics
Italian Language and Culture
Japanese Language and Culture
The most useful AP classes to take are those in core subjects. I would recommend taking:
A science class. AP Biology, AP Chemistry, or AP Physics; I personally recommend taking AP Chemistry because I find it the most interesting!
A math class. AP Calculus or AP Statistics, personally I like AP Statistics much better but it's really your choice because whichever one you do not choose you will probably have to take in college anyways.
DEFINITELY AP English literature! English is the most important class to take in higher level, in my opinion! You learn things about writing that will prove immeasurably helpful to you no matter what your chosen major/career.
A social sciences class. Either AP Psychology or AP World History, you can take both but if you don't want to just choose whichever subject you are most interested in. I recommend AP World History rather than U.S. Or European History.
And a language class. AP French, Spanish, or German; the others involve culture and language which is more difficult and not worthwhile unless you are really interested in the culture.
After that, if you want you can choose one or two AP electives (i.e. Everything that is left) that you are REALLY interested in; otherwise there is no point in taking it as AP. Anyways, all AP classes are better to take now than in college because in high school it is free and it gets you college credit! Also, if you are especially interested in either science, math, or social sciences, then you can and probably should take two of the offered courses in those subjects!
Do you think I can get into Rice University or Rochester University?
I would appreciate it if my answers came from people accepted to the schools listed or those within the admissions 'industry.' Nothing personal.
My college counselor stated that I had a good shot at both schools but I am unsure due to my SATs. Here are my credentials:
3.7 GPA on a weighted scale
660 on critical reading
640 on math
590 on writing
530 on biology
470 on physics
I have already taken the SATs three times and will not be doing so again.
I am currently taking AP Economics, AP Calculus, AP Literature, and AP Biology. Before that, I have taken AP Art History (4), AP Lang/Comp (4), and AP US History (3). All my math classes have been honors, and with the exception of on english and history course, they have all been honors as well. This is my fourth year of Japanese.
I have a part time job and am an active member of several clubs. I am Vice-President of Code Earth, a leader in PAAC/Model UN, was formally in the debate team for my freshman year before it was shut down (I earned enough points to gain an advance NFL pin), am apart of Club Med, Japanese Anime Club, and I might take riflery this year.
I volunteer for several environmental events, some of which I have plan myself. I help with the Handicap and the elderly, and at one point, I was a receptionist at the Life Foundation to help people with AIDs. Sometimes, I spend time working against domestic violence. My volunteering hours are limited to be honest.
My essays are about zombies and mutants (respectively). It makes sense in context.
Lastly, I am an Asian American from Hawaii who practices Buddhism and goes to a Catholic school. I was told that this made a difference because schools needed to make a certain minority quote. Please correct me if I am wrong.
I don't know about anything about Rice, but I would guess you would be fine at the University of Rochester. You've got a fairly complete application, good grades and test scores and plenty of outside activities. With that application, you should have a decent shot at most schools--it's all going to come down to your recommendations and your essay.
