Will it hurt my chances to get into college by not having AP courses?

Posted by:
No.  When making admissions decisions, colleges look at the schools profile to see what the potential for a student could be.  Potential is based on how many of the hardest classes offered by a school did a student take.  For traditional high schools, it is how many of the AP courses the school offered did the student take.  For Early Colleges, it is how many of the college classes offered did the student take.
High School AP -
Student takes 5 out of 8 AP courses
Early College -
Student takes 19 out of 21 college courses
