I am a freshman, and my school doesn't offer AP Chemistry or AP Physics 2. I want to take these courses online. Does anyone know if taking online AP classes looks good for college and matter? Or are they a waste of time? (I'm hoping for Ivy league, if that helps)
It's worth the time if you're aiming for Ivy League, in fact, you should take as many as you can within your comfort zone (don't go too far outside your comfort zone, you will be worse off for it). I'm also aiming for Ivy League and planning to take seven, as every resource I have found has said to aim for 6-8 for Top 20 & Ivy League schools.
Yea, it is def helpful. Adding onto @baileyhebert_82 answer the Ivy League/T20s see it as a green flag if you take a lot of courses outside of your given workload. They see that you are determined to learn and take on challenges, even if they are not offered at your school. The colleges will be able to see what courses are available at your school and compare that to what you have taken.
My school only offers 5-6 APs overall, but I plan to take 14-16 APs overall while doing a dual degree from my community college
