College Quote from

Princeton University’s Dean of Admission Janet Rapelye:

“If the student has the opportunity to do the IB diploma, we really value the diploma,” Rapelye advised.

“the most important thing is your high school transcript.” “Every college and university is going to evaluate first your transcript,” Rapelye said.
