When I said, "While it'd look bad for colleges", I meant dropping the AP and going into a normal class. But yes, getting an A in a normal is much better than a C in an AP.

Not really. It doesn't really matter to be honest. I loaded up with higher level classes, and while I got a lot of A's I had my fair share of B's in classes I wasn't interested in but took just to make it look better on my transcript.

Other kids took about half of the IB (similar to AP but my school offered this program instead) courses I took (just enough to get the diploma) and rounded out the rest of their transcript by lower level and easier classes that they breezed by in, and got into either the same colleges I did or better ones.

It's better to specialize and do well in the topics you're interested in than load up just for the sake of it. It's the same concept with extra curriculars, it's better to be something of power in 1 or 2 clubs than be a part of 7.

Kind of sucks I figured all of this out this summer, going into my junior year of college. I stretched myself thin and it definitely affected how I approached my class selection here as well as my work discipline.

Yeah your fine. Its all the bs Liberal arts degrees that kill you. Things like philosophy and such are no better. The term starving artist exists for a reason. Classes that are not art based are all theory based, as in theoretically full of s***.

Business or science are the way to go.

If you are looking to save money, I would suggest http://www.rockbottomgolf.com Completely legit site, lowest prices I've seen anywhere.
Its not that money is an issue in any way, its more so I don't want to spend 400 on a new Cobra Amp or Taylormade RBZ until Im good enough again to actually be able to use them.

My set of Amp irons 3-AW I got for $250 (I work at a golf course and know a Cobra rep so its at cost) but since they (the club) hooked me up on a set of irons, sun glasses, and some kick ass clothing Ive about used up my favors for the year.

I appreciate the link hopefully Ill get what I need!

I know many people may pay top dollar for college and find themselves drowning in debt, but you kind of have to figure the trade-off. There are some colleges, like Hofstra, that are just expensive versions of state universities. In cases like that, I really can't justify the price. Nothing against Hofstra; it's a very good college, but not much better than any SUNY.

However, there are many exceptions where the price is justified. Ivy League schools, despite being very expensive, open up an incredible amount of doors through its connections. The chances of you landing a high-paying job straight out of college that allows you to pay off that debt increases exponentially. I know this is not always the case, as some of you have brought up examples of people you know, but many times paying the top price for the right university will pay off.

Just my two cents. I'm only a senior in high school this year, but the only private universities I'm applying to are Cornell and Duke, and the rest are public and obviously much cheaper (Binghamton, UMD, UConn, etc).

Simon's reaction in that video is priceless

I give that man a +1 for having the balls to talk back to her.

What kind of an ******* says, "Everyone works hard to achieve their dreams, but it's not meant for everyone"... Lovato can go **** herself.

I met her 2 years ago (the time when she was.. crazy?) and called her out on being anorexic
It was on a school trip. My teacher was like "... yeah"

Wow that's expensive boys.
My schooling $6K a year and I'm getting scholarships and grants for around $4K to 4.5K a year because the government thinks I'm poor even though I play poker for a living and make more than what the jobs in the field I'm studying will pay even with experience.

That's some heavy debts! What's the min. wage in NY?
