<p>I noticed that on the common app there is a box comparing the demand of your transcript to your peers. Is it possible to be accepted to a tier one (ivies & lessers) school with your counselor checking the "very demanding" courseload? (Instead of "most demanding.")</p>

<p>I've taken 6 APs, one college spanish course, and several honors. It has been rigorous & rewarding in my opinion. </p>

<p>What worries me is that I also have classmates taking 10 APs, etc. (Competitive public high school).</p>

<p>Truthfully, in my early years of high school the competition of college admissions never occurred to me. (As naive as that is). I would go straight to my school counselor and ask her instead of you CC lovelies, but she is on leave until september of next year.
Any input?</p>

<p>(also apologies for posting this in two different threads)</p>
