How do colleges view online classes during the pandemic?

Hey everyone, I'm a junior and I've had to take some online classes due to the pandemic. How will colleges view these classes during the admissions process? Will they understand the circumstances? Thanks!

Hi there! I understand your concern about how colleges will view online classes taken during the pandemic. From what I've gathered during my own child's college application process, most colleges are aware of the challenges that students have faced during these unprecedented times. Many schools have even made explicit statements indicating that they will take the circumstances into account when evaluating applicants. It's important to remember that colleges look at the whole picture when considering an application, and they'll likely understand the necessity of online classes due to the pandemic. Make sure you continue to work hard in your classes and maintain good grades, as that will always be a crucial factor in the admissions process. You might also consider explaining any specific challenges you faced during this time in the personal statement or additional information sections of your application. Best of luck with your college journey!
