1:50@naomii: :)
6:20@naomii:how do we submit profiles?
14:07@Ariana27:if you dont get to our profile, will you email us what you think of it?
40:44@MZ:Would you recommend taking more APs or classes that are related to my major in senior year? In the context of this year, do you think AP scores are more important than SAT and ACT?
43:14@zaraadam:is it smart to apply for undecided if you don't have extra curriculum for that major?
44:57@anonymous:how do you apply to be host on collegevine
45:49@naomii:am i doomed for ivies if i have one c+ on my transcript from mental health issues freshman yr lol i have straight as afterward
46:46@S.Olen:I've been taking multiple honors classes to the point where that is most of my workload. But should I try to take some AP classes or am I fine on the honors track?
57:23@MZ:Would it look weird if I am applying to math major but my ECs are mostly business/economics-related (I do not have many math EC opportunities)?
58:42@imzeke:My school doesn't offer very many AP Classes (4). What is offered is a chance to enroll in the local community college and complete a AA. Is doing this as impressive as completing a bunch of AP classes?
60:05@lv123:what extracurriculars should i do if i plan to major in economics?
61:30@WhoGirl03:If I take a university class as a non-degree seeking student does it look good?
62:08@naomii:My school kinda divides us and has a lot of really specific courses for CS kids, Bio kids, Math kids etc. and has a lot of post AP's for Bio (for example). Would it be better if I take a bunch of post-AP Bio courses or take AP courses in CS.
63:21@anonymous:What are your thoughts on being a section leader in band? Is it considered a really good leadership role and how much do you think it would impact chances of admission?
