Do you think it is worth doing the IB program to get into a top 20 school?

I selected my classes for next year and chose to do the IB program. I am starting to regret that choice. I would rather do partial IB. Do you think It’ll look bad if I drop out of the IB program to do partial IB? My goal is to get into a top 20 school. Also my school is an IB school so they do not offer AP classes. I am currently in 10th grade.

Research mentor outside of high school ?

Is there a website or any way I can find a mentor for an independent research? My high school is not an option anymore since I am already a graduate, and I also don’t have enough resources and not even a budget to be spending on this.

Can I work on independent research while not being a high school student?

My country’s academic system is different than the US. So, I have already graduated and I’m 18 still not in university, but I really want to do an independent research project and try to get it published somewhere. Is it possible or legitimate for me to do it on my own without teachers or help and use this project as an activity for my college application? It’s actually a passion project and not to make my application look good, however, I have seen that most of these are done with mentors and such and I don’t have one available and I am unsure on where and how I could find one. I wouldn’t need a lab because it’s for a psychology social research, I would just need people to answer a few questions I would formulate on a form and I would go from there.

How important are extracurriculars for admissions in CS in Pakistan, and for Master's abroad, and how do I find extracurriculars with limited opportunities and freedom ?

I feel really overwhelmed by how to find notable extracurricular activities, especially since I am a girl living in Pakistan and have limited freedom as well as limited money. I don't know where to even start to find internships, extracurriculars etc and my college does not offer anything. I want to know how to build a solid application for undergrad in Pakistan, if extracurriculars are important for universities such as NUST and NED, and how to find opportunities in order to apply for Master's abroad.

Does anyone have any advice on applying to European universities as a U.S. high school student? How attainable is it, if at all?

I am a rising high school senior and I'd love to go to a university in England (specifically London) but from what I've seen I'm not feeling very confident in my chances. How can I improve these chances this late in the game?

What do collages look for on your application?

Currently, I am interested in understanding the key factors that colleges prioritize when evaluating applications. Specifically, I would like to gain insights into which academic courses, extracurricular activities, and club involvements are considered significant. I believe it is important to proactively plan for my future success, hence my inquiry. While I am already engaged in a number of clubs and enrolled in a high-level math class, I am eager to explore additional opportunities that will maximize my chances of admission to the college of my choice.

For an application to a university, do you need extracurricular activities?

I could not do any extracurricular activities due to transportation, but I heard universities are mainly looking for students who do them. Will that impact my chances of being accepted to a good university?

For college application essays, is content or structure and formatting more important?

Many applications give you options on essays. Some choices seem ideal with my writing style that I could write them with good formatting, but other topics I feel as if the content I put into it would help me stand out, but may not be quite as structured. ##essays #writing #writing-and-editing #university-applications #college-applications
