What do you mean by online classes? Where would I take them?

I mean, you can take online courses like Coursera, OCW, etc., but that doesn't make a huge difference in your application.

But you can take college courses. Some colleges provide college courses for high school students, offer online classes, and conduct workshops. I don't know which field you are planning to go to. So, you can just search on Google about which colleges have classes, courses, or workshops.

Alright, I plan on going into either dermatology or computer science. As for earning certifications, would that come with the classes I take?
