Q: What classes are you taking and what is your favorite?

A: “This year I’m taking AP Calculus BC, AP English 11 and AP Government. My favorite is AP Calculus.”

Q: How do you balance all the classes?

A: “The way I balance my classes is by planning out what’s due and when, and working on things in chunks if I need to. For instance, if I have a lot of calculus [homework] and a giant English thing to do, I’ll work on some calculus [and] then I’ll do a couple parts of my English project one day and then do some more the next day.”

Q: Are you doing anything outside of school?

A: “Outside of schoolwork, I do track and String Club. I also take piano lessons.”

Q: Why did you choose to take the AP classes?

A: “I took AP classes because I wanted a challenge. I knew that if I did well on them it would look good on my transcript and colleges would like it.”

Q: What AP tests are you taking?

A: “I’m taking the AP Calculus, AP English and AP Government tests.”

Q: What are you most nervous for?

A: “I’m not really all too worried about them to be honest. I know that in calculus, we spend mid to late April reviewing for the test and AP English isn’t too bad from what I heard. AP Government is basically a giant vocab test and I understand the concepts, so I feel good overall.”

Q: Where do you plan on going to college?

A: “My dream school is the University of Chicago.”

Q: What do you want to major in?

A: “I have no clue what I want to major in but [probably] something with biomedical sciences, neuroscience, cardio science or psychology.”
