Graduation or GED?
Alright, this is my dilemma.
Due to a certain incident at school I am forced to stop taking classes at my high school, instead, because I have all the credits needed to graduate, I am giving the option of taking classes at a local CC.
My classes and grades (highest/lowest possible)
H Physics A/B
Info Processing A/B
AP Lit C/F
AP World A/B
work Exp A
My rank is 169/874 which puts me in the top 20%
My UW GPA is around 3.39
W GPA is around 3.7, +/-1
My HS transcript is 2x longer than the average person - I took much more classes, independent study and community college.
My financial situation is terrible, even with financial aid more then 5k in loans each year is out of the question.
Considering all of these what would be more appealing for colleges and the best choice in general?
-Graduate in April while taking CC classes.
-Get my GED, apply to spring semester for colleges
-Get my GED, attend CC for two years then transfer to a 4yr college.
-Take a CHESP (I'm not sure on the name), basically California test to graduate early but it does not count out of state.
Thanks for reading and serious advice greatly appreciated.
v.1.1, I am posting this multiple subforums because I don't think everyone browses this whole forum.
v.1.2, My prospective colleges are mostly composed of those found on the 'Colleges that Change lives' list, UC's. added one more option.
