How much do community college classes impact your admissions chances?Answered
I was just wondering this because I plan to complete 13 community college courses by the time senior year begins, if not more. All of the courses go on my school transcript and have an impact on my GPA. However, I was told that it does not actually benefit me as much as I think. Could anyone give me advice on how I should move forward? Should I continue taking community college courses or should I stop here? (Just for context as to what type of classes I am taking, I do courses that are not currently offered at my school or courses that I am interested in but cannot fit into my high school schedule. I also want to do an aerospace major in college)

I think they’re I’ll definitely look impressive, like and AP class would. However, please be aware that you will count as a transfer student when you apply and can’t get as many scholarships.
If you are interested in the college classes you are taking, then GO FOR IT! Colleges will see that you went out of your way to take classes that not only interest you, but give you real-world college experience. THIRTEEN college courses will look wonderful on your transcript. That shows you are a hardworking student with a genuine interest in the field, which is all colleges are looking for.
Best of luck!
