As then juniors are now rising seniors is there a new chat to join or will it just be renamed?

Great question @DebaterMAX! We haven't made a decision on what we're going to do quite yet. We like the idea of grade specific communities on paper but haven't quite come up with a way to make them work as well as we would like. Once we decide on how to proceed we'll let you know!

Maybe relabel the communities to Class of Insert grad year?

Yep, that is something we have considered! Here's something to think about: what would you post in a grade specific community that you WOULDN'T post in Admissions Advice or another one of our Communities? Or another way to think about it is: are there specific things you think a grade specific community could answer for you/do better than our current Communities?

What courses to take. And school stuff that indirectly impacts admission. And mental health related stuff and time management but I do fully understand the limited scope.

I'm a senior but I cannot seem to be able to join the senior group. My only option is to stay in the junior group.

Hey! I have a strong SAT score and a strong weighted GPA but my unweighted is quite lower since I am taking a mostly AP schedule. Is that going to be a large negative in the eyes of the admission officers?

This is a good point. Similar for me, my weighted GPA is much higher due to APs but my unweighted isn't the greatest.

I do a lot of extracurriculars but my GPA dropped this past year due to my attendance, besides my current AP classes what can I do to get it back up?

Hey, I need some help. Im graduating a year early, and I want to add that to my account so that it can weigh in with everything else, and I don't know how.

Hi @I.B.King, I do not see a place in the profile to add that, but you can edit what year and semester you will begin college. It may categorize you as an older student (not a junior, perhaps a senior) but that seems like the only way to add that in. Hope this helps!

i'm a junior in high school. I have a 4.0 gpa, havent taken the SAT yet. I dont do any extracurriculars. I want to do well on my SAT which is soon. How do I prepare for SAT?

I mainly prepared using Khan Academy, which was able to give me personalized practice based on my past performances on standardized tests like the PSAT. I liked using Khan because it gave me a study schedule that I was motivated to follow, and also used actual questions from past SATs, so I knew I was getting quality practice. However, Khan Academy only really gives practice, and doesn't have many strategies to succeed on the SAT. To find more strategies, I signed up for hackingtheact.com and bought their SAT course, where I studied the strategies they gave. I also bought a few practice books from Princeton Review to get more practice tests and prepare myself better. Hope this helps! Good luck on your SAT!

Khan Academy was a life saverrr!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :)

I think the best way to study is first take an official practice test on Khan. Other tests, like Princeton, are good, but made based on observations and research. The Khan tests are "retired" SATs from past years. Take one and evaluate your results. Hone in on your weak areas and then study up. You can use Khan videos or other resources. Make a study plan with goals on Khan and stick to it. Take practice tests periodically to evaluate your improvements and other areas of weakness. ALWAYS learn from your mistakes and practice similar problems! Hope this helps. Anyone can ace it, you just have to choose to be diligent and fight it out!

If I'm a 3 year grad, but I'm considered a Sophomore right now and a senior next year, would I still be able to use this junior community.

@CollegeVineSupport Can you please add grand canyon university to your database? I am trying to use the college list to manage all of my applications and that is the only one not on here. Also would it be possible to add a defered status in the dropdown status options for each school in the my college list section? That would be very helpful for me, and probably some others. Thanks!
