Some college-minded friends of mine have advised me to ask my question here. I'm going into senior year in a different high school in a different state. While I've completed all my graduation requirements at my past school, there's apparently quite a few I have to take to graduate high school. It is possible to fit them into my schedule, but it would take 2.5 periods to do so, and we only have 7 period days! My counselor pretty much doesn't care and the administration was not helpful. Frankly I'd rather not deal with them at all. Is it possible for me to just take the AP classes I want to take and sign up to take the GED? Or should I suck it up and try to get done the graduation requirements? I'm trying to apply to schools ranging from ivy league to second tier privates.
