Uday shares with us: "I think it’s important to develop good study habits early and to not procrastinate. Those were probably the two things that helped me the most. " Once I was able to hone in on the important parts, I was able to allocate my time well and maximize it. "I took APs that seemed interesting to me and/or would be useful in a STEM-oriented undergraduate education." Q: Which AP courses did you take in high school? How did you choose them? A: I took Calculus BC, Statistics, Physics C: Mechanics, Biology, Spanish, Government, Language and Composition, and Computer Science. I took APs that seemed interesting to me and/or would be useful in a STEM-oriented undergraduate education. From my experience, the STEM AP credits come in quite handy even at private schools that are notoriously stingy about which AP credits they accept. I didn’t know that at the time but taking those classes definitely helped me skip some of the weed-out classes like physics in college. Q: How were you able to manage the workload of your classes in high school and become valedictorian? A: I think it’s important to develop good study habits early and to not procrastinate. Those were probably the two things that helped me the most. Once a class starts, it is also easy to tell which parts of the class require more attention and will impact your grade more than others. Once I was able to hone in on the important parts, I was able to allocate my time well and maximize it. Learn more about Uday and his experience on his LinkedIn account.
