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 appear appealing 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 As in "regular" or honors courses or Bs in AP and more advanced classes. Plus, a sneak preview of our upcoming episode on crafting a great college essay.
