Considering Dropping off AP English?

Posted by: Claudine Vainrub, Principal of EduPlan on Sep 14 2010 / Comments (0)

To all our students who are struggling with some tough courses as the year starts, please consider this…

“There is no single academic path we expect all students to follow, but the strongest applicants take the most rigorous secondary school curricula available to them. An ideal four-year preparatory program includes four years of English, with extensive practice in writing; four years of math; four years of science: biology, chemistry, physics, and an advanced course in one of these subjects; three years of history, including American and European history; and four years of one foreign language.”

Maybe Harvard is not the option for all of us, however, you will be surprised to find that many schools think just like this. You are certainly better off trying your best to continue taking challenging and rigorous courses, and making the best effort to maintain your high GPA. The payoff is certainly worth your while…

Courage, stamina and buttocks! Get ready to hit the books!
