Discus: What Are My Chances?: January 2003 Archive: IB ADVANTAGE

A lot of ppl say doing the IB is a real big advantage (if u do well!) cause the unis know its really hard, and broad, and all the CAS hours help too.

IB is gay, and I doubt that it will help you get into college. However, if it does, WOOHOO! I'm in Harvard!

It's good, but don't expect to get any college credit at a respectable institution unless you score 6 or 7 on higher level exams. It's not an advantage over a rigorous AP courseload, it's just comparable.

I'm taking the IB. The Higher level courses are comparable to the AP. So that means, we take three, they take as many AP as they can handle. Now which seems more challenging?
