#CampusChat 9-23: Choosing High School Courses for the College-bound

choosing high school courses

Did you know that colleges look at your high school schedule when deciding on an offer of admission?

Choosing high school courses for the college-bound is an important component of the college prep process because colleges view these choices carefully as they determine your ability to handle the rigors of a college education.

For the college-bound, what are the 3 most important things to think about in choosing high school classes? Where do advanced classes, AP, and HS/college dual enrollment fit in? What do colleges look for when reviewing student choices of electives?

These questions and more will be answered with our #WednesdaysParent of #CampusChat with guest Nicole Lentine, Admissions Counselor at Champlain College, Co-Host of Admissions Live on the #HigherEdLive network. Nicole has worked at Champlain College as an admissions counselor for the last seven years. She is co-host of Admissions Live, a twice-monthly webshow that’s part of the @HigherEdLive network. She is a member of NEACAC & NACAC and also involved with HighEdWeb.
