To what extent Extended Essay is important in US college admission?

Recommended Posts

Do US schools consider EE grade as an important aspect of admission process or do they consider it as something minimal as CAS and TOK?

 

Honestly, I chose a wrong topic and am on the verge of getting D on the expected score. Since the EE expected score will be on my transcript, I am very worried about this.

 

Would getting a score of D be fine with getting into schools like Carnegie Mellon, Purdue, and UCs or do they expect much higher grades from the applicants?

 

Thanks!

I think it depends a lot on if the schools you mentioned know a lot about IB, and what the extended essay stands for...... I have not heard of all those schools before, but you should still try and get a better score on your Extended Essay. IB says such an essay can be written in 40 hours if you really make time for it. So try to remove that from your transcrip

If you receive the diploma, colleges will likely not care what grade you made on the EE. If not, then that's up to the college, but I've never heard of a college in the US looking at the EE too closely. The only time I can think of when a college looks at IB specific grades is colleges heavily tied to International Baccalaureate but those (I think) are all outside of the U.S.
