<p>So, I transferred from a new high school in January 2010, and was unable to get transfer credits because my previous high school worked on a block schedule that didn't give half credits for half semesters, thus leaving me without any grades for my first semester junior year. Thing is, I transferred in November, but my counselor wouldn't cooperate with me to design the hardest schedule, basing it on perceived prejudices because I'm Latino. While she didn't explicitly say this, it was obvious, so I contacted a Latino defense fund. Eventually, I got somewhat of the schedule I wanted.
But now, am I screwed? I'm taking the classes online to make the credits up. If I don't finish them by December, it'll just say "No Credit Intended"
What do you guys think? </p>
