<p>I am a junior, going into my senior year, and I am really starting to worry about getting into college. I have a lot of problems with migraines, which causes me to miss school. My mom is constantly telling me that my absences will keep me from getting into college, but when I have a really bad headache, it is hard for me to even think about that.</p>
<p>I miss about 10-15 days a quarter. Freshman and sophomore year's grades are not great...mostly Cs. However, this year, I have A's in most classes (AP Bio, AP Psych, etc.) and B's in two. I also take extra online classes to boost my GPA. Also, I think it shows that I don't miss school because I'm lazy or don't care. I took (and passed) WHAP sophomore year, and took AP Bio, Psych, USH, and Lang this year. Next year I'll be taking AP Lit, APES, and AP Stat. </p>
<p>My language SAT is above average, and my math is average.</p>
<p>I really want to get into the University of Florida, with a major in Animal Sciences. I am not particularly interested in other colleges because UF is the only one in Florida that offers Animal Sciences. However, I know that I have to have backup schools, since UF is very competitive to get into.</p>
<p>My goal for next year is to show up to school, even if I have a migraine, because I don't want to risk not going to college. </p>
<p>Do colleges look at absences as much as I'm afraid they do?
If they do, will my volunteer work, AP classes, and online classes be enough to save me?</p>
<p>Thanks so much!</p>
