i wanna go to georgia tech, but i don't think i can handle honors classes, i mena i'm too smart for normal, too dumb for Honors, AP is ok for me... frankly this doesn't make any sense, oh well. i think i might just try for easy classes with a high GPA

i never took any AP classes. just a few honor math, english, biology, history classes. it was enough to push me past the 4.0 mark.

Seems like most people here are in high school... little advice... DON'T SLACK OFF IN HIGH SCHOOL, OR YOU'LL PAY FOR IT IN COLLEGE. Actually, unless you are smart... I have a friend who smoked pot, ditched classes,... who just didn't give a F*CK about school ended up doing aerospace engineering and ACED EVERY GOT DAM CLASS. I was shocked and happy for him.... but then I became jealous and PI$$ED... ROFL.

You guys should try some upper division computer engineering courses LOL. I'm headed into em next semester.... fun............

That was pretty much me in high school, got my degree in mechanical engineering in may. I took one AP class and got a C in high school. I still maintained a good GPA.

...I remember sitting in high school physics and one girl asking me "does your group, like, do a lot of drugs?" haha.
