I took AP Calc in high school. Got a 3 on the exam, so it didn't count as a math credit later, but I placed into Calc. At Rutgers, that means they axe one of your math requirements.
Logic fulfilled my other requirement.
I've just met people who took calc purely because they placed into it, without any intention of going into a field it's needed for. It just saps the fun out of their semester for no reason. Now, I liked calc. It actually finally gave me a real meaningful use for all the other crap I learned in school. But there's no reason to take it if you don't intend to use it or enjoy it. You'll probably never find yourself in a situation where you need to calculate the distance you've traveled from the rate of change to your velocity over time.
