I'm 17 years old, graduated high school two years early to help with parents financially.
I'm not sure whether or not that's bad on my apps.
I am currently a sophomore at a community college hoping to transfer to a top university.
I graduated two years early from high school (left after my sophomore year) due to financial reasons (i had to help my parents out because they're getting older- and in the long run this would be the smarter financial decision).
