Thanks in advance for any advice. I'm headed into my senior year as a political science major, and I'm currently signed up for two courses for which I have AP Credit (POLS 101 and GEOG 101). My institution lets me take any course regardless of if I have credit and earn the grade, but I'm pretty sure my AP credits show on the transcript. I know that schools don't care much about majors, but would it raise a red flag with an adcomm if I'm a senior retaking these courses, especially a senior political science major taking POLS 101 (the professor is one of the best in the dept, so I want to take a course with him)?

Your school should take off the AP "transfer" credits from your transcript when you take them at school; at least, that's the policy at my school (granted, they generally do not let people take courses they already have credit for...so the policy might be different). Just ask your school.

It shouldn't make any different to adcomms. Just make sure it won't cost you credits you need to graduate (if they'll cancel your AP credits). My school did not do that: I got AP credit and credit when I took the course.
