Any Suggestions??

<p>hi, im new to CC. I'm still a sophomore at a high school.

<p>so if you go for the Early will look at
your transcript leniently?</p>

<p>also...some colleges dont accept IB credits?
is that true? is princeton one of them?</p>

<p>open for suggestions. ^__^</p>

<p>Why didn't you post this in the Princeton forum?</p>

<p>How old are you? I though you had to be 16 to start the FULL IB Diploma</p>

<p>sorry i meant Pre-IB for both freshman and Sophomore.
preIB...IB...we all call it the same lol.</p>

<p>you're a sophomore- your high school career has barely begun</p>

<p>dont beat yourself up about college...yet</p>

<p>LOL MxShade, Ya we all call it the same.</p>

<p>I would say, relax! You are ONLY as sophomore! </p>

<p>You should have a decent chance as long as your junior GPA (which will be good with such a HEAVY course load) stands out with good SAT scores. Make sure you write something interesting about you in the essay and you are fine. </p>

<p>Wow, you have a very good EC as a sophomore. I think it makes you quite well-rounded but it lacks focus. Try to work hard on two or three prestigious competitions, get something big and they should be plenty. (of course, maintaining all your volunteer, president, debate and such)</p>

<p>I don't think adcom looks at your ED transcript that much more leniently. ED has a high acceptance rate because absolute matriculation and most importantly the applicant pool is quite strong in itself (legacies, recruits, cornell(or any other ivies)-lovers etc.).</p>

<p>Best of Luck</p>
