I voted grades (especially 11th grade, that was really bad, had some C's), but if there was anything I could have changed during my school year, it's that I been mainstreamed from the start.
I'm one of those students who started out in special ed classes due to my autism (which was severe when I was young), but as time went by, it went down and I began to show my capability of learning that was beyond that of a special ed student. Got mainstreamed in 7th grade and while I did end up getting a 3.5 GPA in high school, forty hours in community service, and National Honors Society, having previously been stuck in special ed seriously hurt my math ability. It was so bad that I'm having to take math straight from the beginning all over again since I struggled with fractions and division.
Which is why I'm extremely worried about any chance I may have at a Microbiology/Astronomy degree and why I'm asking for help here
(I wish Texas Tech would accept gays, but they don't, so I don't have any safeties).
