<p>I missed freshman and sophomore year of High School for medical reasons.</p>
<p>During freshman year, I <em>technically</em> took courses from my high school, but they were completely modified, as I was only allowed to do school work for 10 hours per week. I didn't cover what the actual classes covered and did not follow a curriculum that was remotely similar.</p>
<p>During sophomore year, I took independent study courses from a college in Utah in addition to a class at the local county college over the summer, which served as my high school courses.</p>
<p>For sophomore year, basically none of my classes were counted as "honors" because they were accelerated. Thus, I didn't get the .5 GPA boost that honors classes get at my high school. However, I did still get all As and A+s in these classes.</p>
<p>I have reduced credit requirements because of my medical absence. I am not listed on Honor Roll and other things because of this.</p>
<p>BUT, despite the fact that my classes cannot be compared to normal high school classes, my high school currently ranks me along with the rest of my class. I am about 40th out of 400. I firmly believe that if I had been in school, receiving Honors credit, I would have at least been in the top 5.</p>
<p>My guidance councilor keeps telling me that he'll put a note on my applications explaining that I was absents. However, I would rather I NOT be ranked and still have a note. I hate seeing that awful rank!</p>
<p>So, my questions:
1. Should I be ranked?
2. Will it hurt my chances at college that I am ranked?
3. Would it hurt my chances at colleges if I were not ranked?</p>
