My school barely offer APs, what should I do?
I'm currently a sophomore in a vocational school that only offers AP english my junior and senior year. You can also take AP calculus and AP statistics in your senior year. I'm currently in honors english and taking geometry and algebra 2 at the same time. I want to go to Georgia Tech and major in aerospace engineering. I'm working on adding more extracurriculars but I know that my lack of APs are going to get me rejected. What should I do?
Earn karma by helping others:
Colleges have admissions officers that specialize in your region. They will know your school, and will know that it does not offer many AP classes. You are also given chances on many applications to explain a weakness in your application, so you could say that your school does not offer many APs. Every college admission information session I have ever gone to has said that it does not matter if your school does not offer many APs, as long as you're taking full advantage of the ones that are offered.
If you want to do more, it is never a bad idea to look into dual enrollment classes at your local community college.
Hope this helped, and good luck!
I have a question how do you put the tags on your question
