Was I too laid back my junior year?
This year is my junior year, and ever since the beginning of it I've been worried I'm not doing enough in school or out of school. University of Miami is my first choice for college, but if I don't make it I'll have Florida International and Florida Institute of Technology.
Well anyway, the only academic classes I've taken this year are AP Lit, AP Lang, Spanish 1, intro to healthcare, medical terminology, Pre-calc honors (online), and U.S. history honors.
I have two main concerns:
(1) I've been extremely laid back with my pre-Calc course. It's been active for 16 weeks and I'm only through what normally should take 9 weeks. Should I power through the rest of the course to finish in the expected time?
(2) The general track at my school is to take physics your junior year. I haven't. Will colleges look down upon this? What if I take a college-level physics class over the summer?
