Definitely not! Colleges check to see if you took advantage of the opportunities you were provided so you have to make sure you talk about these in place of those classes. They will recognize that you didn't have these options and did what you could!

I think that would depend on the college you applied to. I really doubt Ivies would admit a student who has not taken any APs. However, there are plenty of amazing colleges that I am sure would accept you! I recommend applying to a variety of schools (reach, target, safety...).

Lmk if you have any questions!
