i had to switch schools my junior year. at my old school there was a much lower availability of AP classes, and i was ranked 12th. when i switched to my new school, i was 48th, and was able, in 3 semesters, to bring my rank up to 27th. i made the jump from one AP class to four my junior year, and i passed all of them with 5's in calculus and psychology. i also got straight a's all of junior year, and so far in senior year
