    I'd say that you need to relax a little. It's a bit early to be so stressed and most everything about your resume is hypothetical thus far. Stay focused, take the most difficult course load you can, do as well as you can and try to be involved but passionate and committed with your involvement.

    Enjoy high school you have a lot of time before you need to be getting stressed about admissions.

    I realize that most things are hypothetical, but considering the fact that I have As in all my classes (except Math- B) I believe that my second semester grades will be as written in my resume. I have also been studying really hard for the AP exam and SAT II and have done really well on practice tests for these. So even though most of these ARE hypothetical, I did not make unreasonable assumptions. My ECS and future classes will be permanent and will be as written in my previous post.

    Yeah. Relax. Enjoy high school, try hard, do the best you can. Remember admissions are a crapshoot. You will be happy wherever you go. So chill out and try to make as many high school memories as you can so that you don't look back and realize that all you did with your high school years was preparing for college.

    Don't even worry about stuff that happened in middle school, thats pointless.
  • CABARCAMO18CABARCAMO18 Registered User Posts: 64 Junior Member
    yeah but the classes I took in MS were HS course and will appear on my transcript.
  • chillmandanchillmandan Registered User Posts: 189 Junior Member
    Ok, how about this, don't even worry about your freshman and sophmore grades either. Junior and Senior years are infinately more important.
