"A 4.0 gpa without advanced courses in a hs that offers them is a very bad thing"
i hate how people take easy classes just to get a higher gpa. there are at least 5 people in national honor society at my school who have never taken an honors or ap class while there are people who do take ap classes but don't have a gpa that is high enough to be in nhs. it's not fair to them because they work so much harder.
