I’m a currently ending the 3rd quarter of my sophomore year in high school. I want to graduate next year because I have to be able to work (I work two jobs already), and I’ve been having mental health and family issues. I’ll be 18 for all of senior year and the only credit I would even need is a semester of government and a semester of economics. However, I still want to go to a good university. My top college would be in the honors college at University of Florida. Bright futures will cover it if I can get a good enough SAT/ACT score because I’m in Florida already. But I’m wondering just how realistic that would be with graduating early? I did AP Human Geography freshmen year, and I’m currently enrolled in AP Psychology, AP World History and AP Seminar. The rest are honors.
My reminding classes will go as follows:
DE Pre Calc
DE English Comp 1
DE Intro to Chemistry
DE World Lit 1
DE General Chemistry 1
DE Calc 1
DE Abnormal Psychology
DE World Lit 2
DE General Chemistry 2
Sophomore class rank is 34/556 but if I graduate early fo course that will change a lot. Weighted GPA is 4.2969. I will have well over the county mandated 24 credits.
I am lacking in extracurriculars though because I have to work to help support my family. I’ve only been involved in one club freshmen and sophomore year. I want to major in Chemistry, or Psychology, so I am trying to go for the National Science Honors Society next year.
I’m sure a lot of people are in the same situation and I was wondering if anyone else is planning to do the same, or has graduated early already has any advice? My college and school counselors are absolutely useless. Thanks.
