Thanks to all for the replies.
In ters of your answers, I have not taken the most challenging courses in my school for 2 main reasons.
1.I did not have the academic potential (not the main/most important reason by far)
and 2. I took up a lot of extracurriculars, so i did not have the time to take all those challenging courses.
To be honest, I am student that took classes mainly in between college prep and honors/AP (in terms of difficulty). If I had done no ECs at all i probably would have had all honors/AP.
My question is, will college admissions officer's NOTICE AND TAKE INTO ACCOUNT that i did not take more honors/AP courses because i was taking a lot of extracurriculars?
Every year I have added more ECs to my list, and now, ther is not a SINGLE DAY that I leave when the bell rings, I always have some club or activity I have to do.
My main EC's have been.
-Morning news EVERY MORNING for 1.5 hours a day for the past 3 years (i am now pretty much in charge of running the daily news broadcast)
-Debate for the past 3 years, competing in local and national tournaments and have received "Distinction" recognition by the National Forensics League.
-I am a co-founder of the environmental club ("Green Team" as we call it) and am in charge of administering the daily recycling collection as well as helping out in recycling when ther is an afternoon when i dont have other club meetings.
-I am a member of the DSA, in which we meet once a week to discuss current political issues.
I think thers something else, but these pretty much fill all my mornings and afternoons on school days and some weekends (debate).
So you thing that admissions officers will notice this?
