Which looks the best for college. Dual-Credit, AP, or Honors?
What is the difference between them? Rank them in terms of prestige
& Are Honors and Pre-AP interchangeable terms?
I used to live in New Jersey and went to a school that had AP classes. I recently moved to a new school (its less than 3 years old) in a suburb of Dallas, Texas and they barely have AP classes.. just a lot of Dual-Credit. And Dual-Credit is new to me since I wasn't aware of my school in NJ having it, and that school was pretty advanced for a public school. Is it true that Dual-Credit just helps you get into state schools and AP helps nationally? Is my school trying to force us to go to a Texas school? lol. What happens if you are applying to a school abroad? I'm thinking about applying for Oxford eventually. And do colleges look at unweighted or weighted GPA, anyways?
Sorry if these are dumb questions.. next year I'll be a junior so I'm trying to learn now how to be savvy with these sorts of things.
