This is really long so bear with me. It might be sort of hard to understand (sorry!).
I am a 9th grader and I already have a counselor for college applications (something called ivymax). They basically told me the opposite of what’s in here. I think they have past successes- but they only select the best kids (there’s an application process). They told me to be well rounded and proceeded to give me 2 time-wasting AP classes that took away from my main extracurricular: mathematics. We already paid a lot for the counseling and AP classes. Should I pull out, switch programs, keep it, or try to do this by myself? What do you take on this?
Ok, another question. So I am currently doing a lot of stuff right now including:
Latin studying (for national latin exams, national convention), chapter lead of a non-profit, 2 AP courses, 3 AOPS math courses, tennis practice, piano practice, and some others. I know I should get rid of tennis and the AP courses, but what else should I get rid of? My main passions are math/science and entrepreneurship. Also, our school has an incredible latin program and it’s pretty easy to get prizes-but latin takes up 1 hour a day.
What do you think my spike should be? I want to make a business relating to tech/sciences and then from that pull a “bill gates foundation” and do good. I probably need math, science, and entrepreneurship for this goal. But that seems like too much to be a spike.
I probably have more questions so I will probably comment on this later to ask even more questiosns.
