Admissions Advice

Would I still be able to get into a selective school with this schedule.

So I was just assigned my courses, and I am not taking a rigorous one, the reason being I slacked for the majority of freshman year. Sophomore year (next year) I am taking:

Algebra II-Honors

AP Computer Science A

English 2 (accelerated, did not qualify for honors)

USH 2 (accelerated, did not qualify for APUSH)

Chemistry 1 (accelerated, did not qualify for honors)

Spanish 3 (accelerated, did not qualify for honors)

I also have PE and health. This is what I am currently taking:

Geometry Honors

Biology Honors

USH 1 (accelerated)

English 1 (accelerated)

Programming JAVA (highest level)

Spanish 2 (accelerated)

If I get recommended honors classes in junior year and perform well academically sophmore year, would that be a good upward trend? Would this also excuse my freshman year and less rigor in sophomore year for selective colleges?

Sometimes people have a bad year, I mean my freshman year I had mostly Bs but in my soph more I had a single one, even with different classes. I believe you will be fine, colleges always like to see an upward trend cause it looks awesome. Most colleges barely look farther than a sophomore year last time I checked, idk. From what I am seeing in your schedule you like Com Sci, so for college applications later it would be best to see that type of consistency though. Good luck with sophomore year.

You should create a personal program to help you stand out from your rivals because of this. In these circumstances, I pick https://www.programmingassignment.net/services/javascript-assignment-help/ because I am confident in their level of quality and efficiency, which enables you to plan out the project's structure and development in advance, which is crucial.
