Your AP Scholar for today is: Carly Loken!  Carly is a junior & has taken AP Psychology, AP US History, & AP Language. She is currently taking AP US Government. Cary feels that her AP classes have helped her improve her time management & study skills. Since her AP teachers go more in depth she also feels like she will have a lasting understanding of the material. She would recommend that everyone take an AP class, but especially AP Psychology & AP Language since they teach useful facts that are easily applicable to everyday life. She plans on applying to K College, U of M, & New York University her senior year & intends on majoring in Psychology.
