    What do I need for College

    With a lot of us going off to college this year, and the fact that a lot of you guys have either completed college or are currently attending; what items would you reccomend aside from the few obvious (laptop, sheets ect)?

    Yeah, and pretty much every high school in my area does it that way except for mine. Oh well.

    I know UF rated my DE classes a full grade point higher.

    I attend Community College in Canada, I'm currently in my 6th (and final) semester. It's significantly cheaper, but it's a bit harder to socialize with people. If of course, you want to socialize. There are no big clubs, just a few geeky ones nobody is in. The campus is pretty small too so there's not a whole lot to do. But there are some nice professors who actually have experience in the field. I've been taking some investment courses and my professors have actually worked in brokerage houses so they have real experience. Not sure about University.

    Anyways, i am attending University in Canada this fall though, and I've gotten about 1.5 years credit for a 4 year degree. Looking forward to the experience, but I'll still be living at home.

    Mine didn't. They flat out told me on my rejection letter that I didn't get in because of class rank and that's the only thing they mentioned. My ACT score was like 6 points higher than their average too.

    I don't get what you're saying, how do I ''use'' class rank?
