2:01@SDC04:How do I submit my profile for review? The initial description said there was a link but there wasn't one until today, and the link just asks for questions
17:49@GraceJ:Can you talk about BS/MD program application profile? Since you are a medical student from Boston U, I like to know the 7 years LMEP program in Boston U. thanks
21:53@mirellarichard:Hi! My school has a program of studies, which is basically the list of all the courses my school offers and what is available to us (prerequisites course info etc.) It changes quite a lot and going into high school the program of studies at that time didn't allow me to take any AP courses until junior year (except AP bio). It has now changed (and probably will even more in the future) allowing incoming freshman/ upcoming sophomores to take more AP courses than I was offered. Will colleges know that I only had a certain amount of courses available to me at the time? I know many schools do it differently as well and people can take AP courses starting their freshman year, so does this put me at a disadvantage? Would this be something I tell my counselor to mention, or something I mention in the additional info section? Sorry, I know that was a lot, but thanks for taking the time to answer!
25:57@PSJ5234:I submitted my profile yesterday and I was wondering if you received the profile review (due to the technical difficulties), and if so, is there a way you can review it if you don't get to it today?
34:48@saruhhh:I submitted my profile through a link from the previous session. Do you think you'll be able to review it?
35:25@mirellarichard:What exactly counts as a tier 1 activity and what makes it different from a tier 2?
40:10@Eden0Leeann:i want to go into biotech but my big focus in extracurriculars is art, how would that serve me in applications?
43:58@saruhhh:(sara c. home-uh) Around how many tier 1/tier 2 activities would you suggest for students aiming for top schools (like Ivies)?
57:59@twohid:If we take dual credit courses, would the college look at the separate college transcript even if they don't accept the college credit transfer?
