Please read through the thread at the top of this forum titled "Important Columbia Threads." Your questions have been asked several times on this forum, and I'm sure you will find helpful answers in many of the past threads.

More than half the active users on this board are current or past students. What you need to do is begin your college search and application process. If you have specific questions we can help, but I don't think anyone wants to hold your hand through it all. (think about a metaphor between a chick and the egg, or butterfly and cocoon.)
okay thanks yeah im gonna stop worrying and do something i was thinking of voulentering at a hospital this summer but i have to figure out how i would get there and back oh and if i take a regular english but all of my other courses are honors does that look bad
The way you have to think about it is this: there is always going to be someone who goes a little bit further than you. Some one will apply that did take that english honors course. Do you feel confident that you are showing your best if you don't? Challenge yourself and you will be rewarded. Take it easy and the colleges will know. That's not to say that you have to be perfect to get in, but you have to take risks and do well.
alright, thank you i am going to try and e-mail my counsler and see if she can place me in the honors course instead for english. I think they'll make my parents sign off on it but they aren't going to say no.
