"Great things never came from comfort zones." | A UNC-Chapel Hill Student on High School Courses
We had the privilege of interviewing AW via Google Doc and asked for some experience about: High School Courses AW is currently a student at UNC-Chapel Hill majoring in sociology and psychology.
Here is a piece of wisdom she shares: "Study effectively, don’t study what you already know. " Q: With your course load and extracurriculars, how did you manage to find time to complete assignments and study? A: Put your phone in another room and take breaks only when you know you deserve them. Study effectively , don’t study what you already know. Target your weaknesses and study smarter, not harder! Efficiency is key. Q: How did you decide what courses to take? (interest, GPA, college credit, etc.) A: GPA. It just made sense to take the more challenging courses and strive for a higher weighted GPA. Q: What did you have to sacrifice in high school in order to do well academically? A: Honestly, not a ton? I personally never had to pull an all-nighter for school. Q: Do you think that you benefited more from your AP classes or from your extracurricular activities? A: Extracurriculars for sure. Really only like a handful of the AP classes I took stuck with me and stretched me to be a better student and studier. Q: Which AP classes did you find most difficult? A: Chemistry was tough but there is no one more suited to teach it than Gallagher (teacher). Q: How did you do in AP courses qualitatively and quantitatively? A: I got A’s in all of them except chem and APES. Chem because it was hard and APES because I slacked a little.
