Admissions AP or IB for admission to CalTech?

  1. Jun 30, 2016 #1
    I want to study Computer Science at CalTech and I wanted to know whether getting an IB diploma is worth it. Is it better to get IB or sacrifice a bit of rigor for more flexibility in the classes I choose? I know CalTech doesn't accept credit aside from their own placement test so purely in terms of admissions what is better?

    If you don't yet have the ACT and/or SAT scores to get in, I would focus on that. Otherwise, the admissions office won't even get to evaluating your transcripts.
