Junior Looking for Advice
I'm a junior and my gpa went down a bit during covid. I am taking classes in the summer that are weighted to boost my gpa. Does anyone have any tips to make up for it in my college application. I have taken many ap classes.
Earn karma by helping others:
Wow, you are really committed! Make sure to take more AP classes next year and do well. Take harder classes in general that will round out your transcript, such as high level math, continuing in the language you're studying, science, history, other core classes (not electives, generally). Do some community service and get involved in extracurriculars you care about. Study and do well on the SAT. Write good personal essays. If you have a specific college you really want to go to, apply early decision and it will give you better chances.
Get community service at your local library and join more extarricular activities like student government, debate, yearbook, clubs, sports, etc.
To keep this community safe and supportive:
- Be kind and respectful!
- Keep posts relevant to college admissions and high school.
- Don’t ask “chance-me” questions. Use CollegeVine’s chancing instead!
