[this is from a post already posted in another board - under someone else's discussion, which now that i think of it is really very rude of me ]
You think these required CAS hours actually harm an IB student's chances of admission, since the 150 hours aren't truly voluntary and of our own desire to ..um...change the world for the better, self-enrichment..er..yea..?
How much emphasis do you think colleges place on the actual subjects you choose, whether you take them at HL or SL, versus the actual total score you receive at the end?
More personally, I'd like to shoot for the IB Bilingual diploma but i think my score for Chinese A2 Standard would be a 5 (or possibly a 6), as opposed to the 7 I'm sure i could get if I aimed a little lower.
I'm also weighing Economics against History - will such a choice in humanities affect my chances to go to a US college? I'm thinking about pursuing medicine in the future.
Which sciences should i take - from Biology, Physics and Chemistry - and at which levels?
Thanks very much for any input....

Can someone please explain the entire IB program. My school is public and i believe that this is why we don't offer such a program.

My school offers IB and it's public...
IB is even more difficult than AP or more or less can, by some, be considered the same "advanced" level.
