I need your advice,

I have 630 on SAT 2 Math 1 & 660 on SAT2 Chemistry. I am planning to give SAT2 Math 2 & Physics on June 2017. It feels hard to cope up with 2 subjects at once. I am targeting top colleges. Should I give both of them or just SAT2 Math 2 exam?????

Those three things describe me perfectly in so many ways

I appreciate your comments about vision and passion!

This is great and all, but how do these tips translate for people with depression? How do I show that I have “desire”, express my “vision”, and that I will, “change the world,” is my self efficacy is practically non-existent? I have the grades, test scores and extracurriculars, yet no drive. I feel like I would, if not for my depression.

They are things I like, activities and subjects that I love, I suppose I am incessantly curious but, my depression is making all of these assets die off. I would act on, and expand my “passions” more if I didn’t hold myself back so much. You could tell me to just stop doing that, but it’s not that simple. I have become apathetic; complacent, and have been this way for much of my highschool career. It’s too late to make a turn-around.

Do I lie about how I feel about myself and the world on my essay? I can imagine no college would admit someone they perceive to be emotionally weak due to their likelihood of dropping out, but I want to stay genuine in my essay. So do I omit the fact that I am so depressed?

I feel like this mental illness only benefits you in the college process *if* you have already overcome it. It’s a bit too late for that now. I feel like everyone expects you to be optimistic and to believe in yourself in order to get into a competitive college, but that seems nearly infeasible for me. I probably could be able to do all that I want to, if not for my feelings holding me back and that sucks so much.

No one ever talks about applying for colleges when depressed, I would really appreciate your advice.

Edit: I have read and heard college admissions officers say that they value insight into how an applicant thinks. This is the last thing I would want someone to know, especially a college admissions officer. Given my apathetic; pessimistic mentality, do you think that college just isn’t the best option for me right now? I really want to go to college, but I’m the antithesis of who colleges look for apparently.

Is it possible to make a video in regards to technical school students applying to Universities? I attend The Met high school in Rhode Island and we don’t receive grades. I know this channel is mostly for regular public school students but just wondering!

Linh Le · July 27, 2017 at 9:49 am

Is it a problem to talk about my interest if it does not relevant to the major I want to study? Like I want to study chemistry (bc I have good grade on it) but art is what interests me.

danielle theresa · July 27, 2017 at 1:53 pm

I’m in 10th grade, and last year I told myself that I wasn’t going to do sports so I could focus on my grade. I love volleyball and I want to get more active but I would be missing so much school for a few months/weeks and I just don’t know what to do. My grades are incredibly important to me and I don’t want to have them affected, because of volleyball. I want to play but at the same time I don’t. This year is definitely going to be a little trickier because I might be taking two math courses, an I just want to be at the top of my game. Please, anybody, give me some advice on this.

Tamanna Nahida · August 20, 2017 at 12:56 pm

What if someone don’t have any extracurricular activities? But have other 4 staffs?😕

Ediane Voltaire · September 4, 2017 at 12:22 pm

Great, I’m only taking one AP so far and I feel like its to late. But I did all Honors since freshmen year and academic programs. I’m thinking about taking at least 3-4 AP classes next year for my final year.
