I'm currently a HS senior looking at an 86.5 GPA for freshman-Junior year. Since senior year won't factor in; I'm locked in with my 86.5.(3.2?) Being brutally honest here: I have very few EC's, and a 2100? SAT.
Since I won't be able to get into schools like Cornell, Emory, or CM; I'm thinking about going to college locally and then transferring out. Since my mother is a professor at a college near my house; I can go there for free.
How long will I have to stay at this local college before I can apply(with a 4.0 hopefully) to another school?
Off topic question: The gen-ed requirements at many schools I'm looking into say you must take courses in "Language and Communication - Composition, Oral Communication and Foreign Language." Does this mean I'll have to take SPANISH again!? nooo.. :(
