As a high school freshman, I was often told that a B in a honors course was equivalent to an A in a regular course. Thus, I put myself through many "accelerated" classes and earned Bs. At the time, I was satisfied. Now, as a senior that's almost done with college application materials, I wonder what could have happened if I took regular level classes, just enough to have a 4.0 gpa. So..In your opinion, is a B in an honors course equivalent to an A in a regular? How about a B in an AP/IB course? Do you believe that colleges really look at these as equivalents?
