I rechecked with some of the admission officers I trust, and they said I was right. But I haven't checked with everyone. What is your experience in this area? If you are a counselor or admissions officer, have you seen colleges give preference to a student who has an amazing ton of APs, as opposed to one who just has a healthy amount, three to five?

Which policy makes sense to you?
