About this livestream


Applying to college is hard, especially if you’re indecisive. With so many choices to make throughout the admissions process, you might find yourself hung up on which of each are best for you — and if you’re planning your schedule for next year, you’ll definitely want to know whether to take AP or IB courses.

In this episode, Shravya will walk you through the Advanced Placement and International Baccalaureate programs, including the pros and cons of each depending upon your personal situation. She’ll cover the two on their own and then go over their differences and similarities, so stop by with questions or stick around the whole hour to find out which of these is best for you.

Undergrad College: Rice University '20

Work Experience: During my time at Rice, I mentored dozens of high school students through the college application process, along with editing essays and tutoring students for the ACT/SAT. I also interned at a medical technology startup, conducted research in Brazil, and gave a TEDx talk. I recently finished applying to medical school; I've been admitted to multiple schools, and will be starting in the Fall.

My Admissions Story: I remember feeling very blindsided by the admissions process and not knowing where to begin. I hope that sharing my experiences and some of the things I’ve learned along the way will help guide other students in a similar boat.
