I am enrolled to go to HMC and hopefully study engineering or biology/chemistry jointly. Now, to my question: I got a job right after 1st semester ended and all my applications were sent in order to start raising money to help my parents pay for my college. I work 3-4 days per week for 5 hours, so naturally it took away from the time I was able to focus on school. I have been a straight A student my whole life, but my AP Calc BC and AP Physics C grades have both dropped to high and mid B's respectively. I know the material, I just haven't had time to study the specific problems needed to pass tests or to focus on my lab work.
Now, I know I'm not going to get kicked out or anything, but since HMC is such an intense math and science school, will there be any repercussions because of this, such as different placement or anything? At ASP they all told us to loosen up and that we'd have to get used to not getting straight A's at Mudd, but I'm not sure they meant last semester of high school. :(
I'm like 90% sure I'm worrying WAY too much, but hey, I figured asking wouldn't hurt. Thanks.
