Listen to Episode 1B of Getting In:
Host Julie Lythcott-Haims and expert Amy Young, the director of college counseling at Avenues New York, answer listener questions.
The first question, from a 10th-grader enrolled in an intense STEM program, wonders how she can appeal to a college with an arts and communications focus. The second question is from a parent who wonders whether colleges are more impressed by straight A’s in “regular” courses or B’s in AP and advanced classes. Plus, a sneak preview of our upcoming episode on crafting a great college essay.
