I go to a very small charter school that does not offer any accelerated courses whatsoever. We have no AP, IB, or honors courses available. By the time I graduate I will have taken 21 college courses at Ivy Technical community college. Will my application be less competitive compared to other students who have take APs?
Not at all, universities/colleges 🏢 take into account the number of rigorous courses 🚀 offered at your school. As you have taken 21 college courses 😲, this proves that you were proactive 🤓 regardless of the fact of lack of AP, IB, or honors courses at your school. If you are extremely ambitious in taking AP courses, you can sign up🕺for the exam and self study 💻. AP courses tend to transfer to colleges/universities outside of your state more often than community college courses, and there isn't much else of a difference⚖️. Ultimately, it's up to your personal situation, and which you find most convenient.
