Did two exams last year, doing five this year. Will have finished English Lang, Microeconomics, Chem, Calc (BC), Bio, Phys, French. Does anyone else have to come to school on a PA day to write Bio and Phys? hahaha

Well I applied to a bunch of universities in the US, and taking many APs is actually useful for admissions, unlike here. It shows your ability to handle a difficult workload similar to what you would expect in university. Since I'm not attending a university in Ontario (which all limit it to like 2-3 AP credits max), I'll theoretically be able to use as many as I wish. Nevertheless, there is some course material that I think would be beneficial to review in first year, so I won't be using all 7 AP credits.

I don't think he would have to take the regular courses along with the APs. That's simply not human.

If by "regular 8 courses" you mean the provincial standard "xxxxU" courses, then no. At my school you just choose between the C, U, or AP level for each course (although some courses only have a U option). The AP course covers everything required by the Ontario curriculum (i.e. everything that the students in the U class would be learning, plus a lot more). Then, at the end of it, I just take the AP exams in May, which are entirely independent of the high school and do not count towards GPA/average in any way.

I will be attending the University of Pennsylvania's School of Engineering and Applied Science. (That's the Ivy League university in Philadelphia, not Penn State, which many people confuse it with.) My other US acceptances, if anyone's interested, were Johns Hopkins (BME), Duke (Engineering), and UC Berkeley (Bioengineering). Penn is the only school that gave me financial aid, so nothing else is really an option anyways... not that I'd choose any of the others over Penn!
