AP International Diploma: does it really help?
As many of you might know, the Advanced Placement International Diploma is available to students attending secondary schools outside the United States and to U.S. resident students applying to universities outside the country. You don't need to apply for it, it is automatically awarded to you if you meet the requirements:
Grades of at least 3 in:
1. Two AP Exams from two different languages selected from English and/or world languages,
2. One AP Exam designated as offering a global perspective,
3. One exam from the sciences or mathematics content areas,
4. One (or two) additional exam(s) from among any content areas except English and world languages.
My question is:
For those who are going to try for it, or at least know something about it, does it really help to have it? I mean, do colleges really look at your application more seriously if you have it?
