Some schools want to see you take English and writing anyway. Even though I came in with AP English as well (Which ONLY shows on an OFFICIAL transcript, BTW), I was advised to take English classes if I wanted to apply to nursing or pharm schools so I did. I was interested in taking them anyway. Seek out some that are known for being more of an easy A. No extra points from the adcom for taking something ridiculously hard like Victorian Literature or something.
