Do selective colleges judge you in the context of your school?

<p>I'm currently a sophomore at a public high school in New Hampshire, just wondering about the question in the topic title. Our school offers few AP courses and 0 correspondence with community colleges. A track that you're placed on in 6th grade determines what math classes you will take in high school, if you're unlucky this will culminate in you taking Trigonometry senior year and maybe Calculus (not honors or AP). </p>

<p>Also, I'm not a minority or the first in my family to go to college (as I hopefully will) nor do I live in a racially diverse area (something like 98% white).</p>

<p>I know I sound whiny but CONSOLE ME! haha</p>

<p>yea, they want you to make sure that you take advantage of whatever opportunities your school provides, no matter how few they may be. they cant penalize for going to a school with few APs. Just take all the APs. Dont worry you're not the only one.</p>

<p>I feel you! My school similarly sucks, and I'm stuck on the slow math, while my public hs is owning at like #30 in the nation...oh wells!</p>

<p>All colleges judge you in the context of your school. I even heard that from my safety school.</p>
