Andrew’s Answer

An AP Statistics class will nicely complement your future academic pursuit in Computer Science. Furthermore, it will open a door to Data Science.

On the other hand, if you are planning to pursue a minor in chemistry, it will be another story.

It all depends on what you would like to do in your undergraduate years.

An AP Stats class will go long way in helping you major in Computer Science and become a software engineer at the same time unlock many other future possibilities. With the boom in big data analytics and machine learning methods, data sciences roles have also become extremely lucrative for computer science majors. Having an AP Stats class as opposed to AP Chem will open many potential avenues for minor and job perspective. For example, for a minor in economics, data analytics, statistics etc which are hot choice these days, you will be required to take an introductory statistics course that can be waived if you have a certain grade in AP Stat (the grade requirement and ability to substitute the college level introductory statistics may vary across universities).
