Your host

Undergrad College: Yale University '21

Work Experience: I am a senior at Yale and excited to begin my fifth admissions cycle working with CollegeVine. After four years of working directly with students, I can't wait to engage with the people and the process in new and innovative ways online.

1:22@goldenretriever1:Hiii Pal!!!! Welcome back. You were missed!!!!!
16:10@MichaelSuper:Boston College
37:43@Patty:Is 9th grade too early to start college visits?
42:03@goldenretriever1:I took physics in sophomore and bio last year. I like physics a lot more and am thinking of majoring in physics. For rec letter shall i ask sophomore physics teacher or bio teacher from junior? Schools said they prefer teachers from junior/senior?
42:32@selinalin17:how would you go about building your list if you don't really know what you want to major in?
45:55@jaz123:how did you choose which schools do apply ea and which to apply ed
48:51@Allyoy:Do you think Gr.7 is a okay time to start planning your future and studying for courses and picking colleges?
50:22@goldenretriever1:Great advice. Thanks :) some schools ask a few academic interests.. overall im a STEM gal.. however i also love my humanities classes. Is it okay to put down totally disparate interests?
52:24@Allyoy:So would you say that looking into high school courses is fine at an earlier age?
53:25@shree123:Is it okay if you only have 9 colleges you feel interested to apply to?
54:35@adityav:How to decide between the combined 8/7 med programs but also keep option open with top schools where i can take the regular track, MCAT?
60:17@adityav:Thank you. One other follow up could you clarify a little more on the early admission restrictions? I'm a junior this entering fall. When I went through college vine pretty much they are pretty close wrapping up in the fall of senior year.
