yo i desperately need advice about my senior grades

<p>Ok so here's the situation- I am a NMSF I'm in top 3 percent in a competitive school, yada yada yada. But now in my courseload of 7 AP classes and computer science indep. Study I simply bit off more than I can chew and am proceeding to get a nasty B in both AP physics and AP Stat, barely scraping an A in AP BC Calc. Thus my scores in physics and Stat, stat in particular, might drop my rank and gpa, and as I'm applying for engineering at cornell, rice, columbia etc. Might make them tell me to go to hell. WHAT ON EARTH DO I DO?! When the midyear report comes out will these colleges immediately drop me like I'm hot?! I have like 7 absences in Stat should I go and lose credit in it by geting one more absence, or does that look even worse?! ARGH I'm like this close to jumping off a bridge or something as my future crumbles in front of me, all because of bull**** classes I shouldn't have taken :'(</p>

<li>Did he just say “yo?”</li>
<li>Why would you take 7 APs plus a self study?</li>
<li>Stat is a joke.</li>

<p>You’re SOL bro.</p>

<p>Chill out. It is not that big of a deal. It’s pretty impressive that you can take difficult classes and succeed as you currently are. Talk to you teachers and see what you can work out. </p>

<p>Even if you dont end up at one of those “prestigious” schools, you’re going to get into a great school where you will likely excell. Part of high school and college is learning what we can take on. And a couple b’s will not keep you from being admitted on their own. Relaxxxxx. I know, easier said than done, but still… That’s pretty much all you can do. Ask for extra credit projects if you can manage those and keep up your other a’s.</p>

<p>Thanks for the help “funstuff” way to be a ******. And what does SOL mean?</p>

<p>And do you think so dude? Idk what to do anymore…with all my ECs and my crapton of work I’m like failing at life and running around with a headache all day…</p>

<p>Acronym for the words of “S*** Out of Luck.” It is used in reference to the state of having run out of all other options, wherein the remaining situation is less than desirable.
“I didn’t finish university, had a child out of wedlock, possess little to no marketable skills…Sounds like I am S.O.L.!”</p>

<p>■■■ now this clown is laughing at my misery.</p>

<p>Seriously, what did you expect when you took 8 APs?</p>

<p>I think that you can figure out a way to work it out. Can you drop your independent study? Does your physics teacher have office hours? Go in and ask for help/ beg for test corrections or ec. </p>

<p>If you get a b or two, dnt feel too bad. It only matters for about 6 months (if that) and then you start college wherever you get in and you no longer care. Keep things in perspective.</p>

<p>Funstuff is a b. How close are your B’s to A’s. If they’re close fight for them. As stated colleges will notice rigor.</p>

<p>Thank you for the help man I think I will in fact go beg my physics teacher.</p>

<p>see if there’s any chance for extra credit, suggest a project that way they don’t have to come up with it, explain your situation but don’t try to shed all the blame off yourself</p>

<p>Ok thank you very much</p>

<p>Just swallow.</p>

<p>Why do you deserve extra help? If you didn’t get an A in the course, I don’t see why your teachers should let you and only you have projects, test corrections, and the like. I mean, like you said, you “bit off a bit more than you could chew,” so you’re acknowledging that you’re to blame for your grades. Therefore, I think you should just accept your grade (which, in reality, isn’t terrible at all), and move on.</p>

<p>-Sigh- Whatever happened to the old expression “You get what you get, and you don’t get upset”?</p>

<p>If you’re just going to be less than helpful please don’t comment this is a very serious subject matter to me.</p>

<p>I gave you a serious answer; I don’t think you should get the grade bump. You decided to take the classes, and you should either live with the consequences or drop down a level, if it’s not too late (which is probably is).</p>

<p>■■■■■■■ hard.</p>

<p>Truthfully, based off your poor performance in collegiate courses, I would recommend a trade school or a community college.</p>
