    The American Schooling/Uni system seems a lot more complicated than what we have over in Aus. I just finished my HSC (Higher School Certificate), was given a score out of 100 and applied for any course I wanted at any university. With a half decent score you can pretty much go to any university in the country.

      yea I am also worried I get put off track, my sister can manage being a party animal and be a good student but she has always been a good student. I am looking at either Salsbury,WVU,UMD,York I think I could get into WVU and maybe Salsbury w/o CC but if I get good grades from CC I could open my options a lot more. But then again a downside would be missing out on 1/2 of my senior year,but I will be able to meet a lot of people at CC.

        School pays me. I enjoy it.

        Pulled a 3.75 in my first semester, go back on the 22nd to mostly math classes. Not so bad.

          Solidifying your future is more important then a few high school parties that will be a distant memory. Just my opinion though.....

            true, I will still be living in my same house so I could hang out, but I mean seeing people in the hallway and eating lunch w/ all my friends and seeing the cool teachers is what I will miss the most.

                I don't go to school but I have recently started a hobby of collecting college t-shirts from accross the country. I plan on getting a large US map on the wall and indicating with a pushpin the college's i currently have. I plan on doing it as a hobby but also to teach my child geography in 2-3 years

                    That's not healthy. You should really look into other choices. Nobody says you can't be a Rutgers fan and attend another school.

                      Yeah, I love U-M but I don't attend there. I could've gotten in, I'm sure. However, no way was I writing the 2-3 essays that they require.

                          It's a solid B average.

                                I start my next semester at Minnesota State on Monday, and I have some hard-ass classes. Well not really hard, but I know I have to do a lot of work for them.
