This is always bothers me

<p>lol fail title..sorry Alright well first my Schedule right now for 11th grade is:
APB physics
Honors English
AP psychology
Honors Spanish 4 -AP spanish is not offered untill next year.
And here it is.... Regular Trig....In my school Honors Pre-calc is considered the most ahead you can be.</p>

<p>That regular Trig always keeps me up at night.
I can easily be in Honors calc but what happen was in 8th grade I wasn't put into honors...and they said it's to late. Cause once everyones ahead of you you can jump ahead... in new york anyway, cause we all have to take regents to consider the class completed.
Anyway the main point is I have a 4.0 right now with that schedule... I keep like a 97-99 in Trig.
I play a spring sport, will have strong teacher recs, will have some clubs and such, and alot of community service.
In addition, I got a 2100 on my sat.... I got a 710 In CR and 700 in math.
Basically, I just want to know to what extent this flaw will hurt me.
Will it stop me from going to all top colleges??
I mean a 700 on the math shows that im strong in math.
Post your thoughts, advice, whatever. Excuse my spelling and grammer.</p>

<p>What colleges are you considering?</p>

<p>The only ones you can explicitly cross off your list are Caltech and MIT.</p>

<p>Boston college is where My brother went and is where i really want to go.</p>

<p>I was in a pretty similar situation. My middle school did not offer an advanced math program, so everyone in the grade was in the same level of math (which I guess was some Pre-Algebra type thing). So I got into high school and the only route I could follow was Algebra I, Honors Geometry, Honors Algebra II, and Honors Pre-Calc/Trig. (note* after Pre-Calc/Trig the only other course offered is AP Calc AB, we don’t have a not of options when it comes to APs this is one of the few offered). I couldn’t do anything before my junior year because of family issues, but I talked with my guidance councilor and the AP Calc teacher at my school in junior and I was about to take an online course with another school that would allow me to enter AP Calc in the fall of my senior year. </p>

<p>Long story short, talking to your guidance councilor and the higher level math teachers and see what you can do. You might be able to take trig at a community college over the summer or online or something like wise.</p>

<p>If you can’t get anything changed when your guidance councilor is writing your letter of recommendation for colleges makes sure she explains your math situation to the colleges because it’s not your fault. Colleges will understand. </p>

<p>Good luck!</p>
