School, +10*

Post  Constance on Mon Aug 22, 2011 9:35 pm

So! I thought I'd ask, because I'm weird and curious like that. Who has started school? Or is going to start soon? Who never has school EVER AGAIN? (And if that is you, please share your secret. Razz)

Me, I've been doing some school almost all summer. (math, bleh) But I am starting some college classes next Monday; only three, because it's just dual enrollment and I can't have more than 10 hours. I'm excited, but sort of anxious. New experiences and all.

How bout you? Are you looking forward to anything about school? Or, *gasp* are you looking forward TO school? Shocked

*The +10 is just cause you have to have at least 10 characters for subject line. Rolling Eyes

I start college tomorrow and highschool the week after. I'm only take two college classes this semester and then three next one. I'm only looking forward to my college English class Smile. They say the teacher is really tough but that she turns you into a great writer, which is what I need and want.

School? Over the summer? O.O *gasp* *sends chocolate* that is not fun! I remember you mentioning you had to do that when you were being home schooled but I assumed it stopped since you graduated (You did graduate, right? I have the worst memory) Either way, I'm still sorry you had to do school over the summer!

You still have to have 10 characters for the subject line? I thought Lizzy fixed it so you could have less.

Oh, lucky! I haven't heard anything about my English teacher... I hope the same goes. O_o I hope she is, though. That'd be awesome for you. Very Happy

Yeah... TECHNICALLY, I am graduated. I've finished an online high school course. But... it was a FLORIDA online high school course, so it doesn't meet all the recs of Texas. So I still have more to do. Mostly math and science stuff. Bleh.

Oh. Did she? I was too lazy to actually check, but I assumed it was so. Razz

I'm a quarter of the way through my university semester, but that doesn't really count as school, does it?

I'm a little confused about the US schooling system - why are you doing college *and* high school at the same time?

@Matt Yeah, that counts. And I am so thrown off by you being 1/4 through already. O_O

Well, SEE... some high school students do dual enrollment (also known as dual credit), which is where you can take university classes, and they count towards your college degree AND your high school classes. So say I take a college-level English class. I can put that on my high school transcripts for English(probably as an honors class, methinks), but it still counts as the college credit you would get if you were just taking it like normal.
Dual enrollment is a really good way to get some of your basics out of the way before you actually go off to university. It's a lot cheaper than usual (classes are either discounted or, like with my university, free besides books). If you work really hard, you can get up to around two years of college out of the way.
But you can only do dual enrollment from... 16 to 18? Maybe 15. Basically, while you're in "high school". (With homeschoolers, though, we can take as many as we want until right before we turn nineteen and then declare ourselves graduated. It's AWESOME. Razz)

Wow, that was a longer answer than I meant it to be... This is my procrastination at its best. (I'm supposed to be putting up laundry and packing.)
Anyway. Did that make sense, or was it too convoluted?

I started my chem class two to three weeks ago. It's class twice a week and homework for the other days. The rest of my subjects start on Monday, but it's going to be a light year. No math = A VERY HAPPY ME. Though college IS on the horizon, it's not in my immediate life.

Blech. School.

This is my 3rd week of school this semester. I'm only taking 3 classes at the university since I'm paying out of pocket for tuition. O_O College = way too freaking expensive.

@Stephen Aww, it won't be too bad! (See my optimism there?? It's soooo rich coming from me!)

@Shahira IT IS. O_O Agreed, agreed, and AGREED. I already have plans that I'm just going to study and TAKE THAT ACT until I have scores high enough to warrant Super Awesome Scholarships. I'm already praying I can keep my sanity in the process. Razz

@Maggie That sounds like a good idea! I wish I did better on my ACT's but I just didn't care back then lol. I'm now regretting it. &yeah, I'm not sure why they deem it necessary to charge hundreds of dollars for a textbook, or a parking permit. It's like every little thing costs money. -_-

@Shahira -- *Every little thing costs lots of money. Razz Seriously though, that's why Amanda and I aren't going to college this semester--don't have sufficient funds/scholarships and refuse to go into debt. Shocked

@Shahira: College... expensive... yeah... sums it up. Neutral

@Renée & Maggie: I've considered that option occasionally... But then, I've got plenty of time to ponder it. Razz

@Lyla O_O Good luck with those! Sounds awful.
