I will be graduating from high school in about 6 weeks.

After, is college. I got accepted into my first-choice college and just found out last week that they're giving me a full ride! I'll be going for Pre-Dentistry or Biology, or I might just double major in both. It's an accelerated program, so it will only take me 3 years to get into dental school, and I have a guaranteed spot there as long as my grades are all good and my teachers give a good recommendation. You wouldn't believe how hard it is to get into dental school. Everything is seeming to work out for me, so hopefully it'll all be smooth sailing.
:)

That is wonderful that you got accepted to your first choice and got a full scholarship!! Congratulations! :) You must be super smart to go into an accelerated program.

Actually, at my school I'm just slightly above average.
I'm ranked 16/140 kids and have a 4.02 GPA on a 4.0 scale. That's not even top 10%! They're are some really smart kids in my high school though.

The accelerated program is offered to every Pre-professional major (Pre-Med, Pre-Law, Pre-Optometry, Pre-Pharmacy, etc, etc) You just have to be getting a 3.5 GPA at the end of your third year and professors have to okay it. You don't have to do it if you don't want to, which I don't know why you wouldn't want to do it, or if you're not eligible. It's just a really nice bonus when you'll be going to school for 8+ years.

I graduate from college with a Bachelors degree in Biology in ... umm... 36 days now :)

I actually have to go take physics at a community college and then I plan applying to osteopathic medical school. I am definitely ready to have my vacation this summer. It will be my first summer without summer classes in 4 years.

SaylorKennedy, do you not also use a 5.0 grading scale? My school does (although 4.0 is standard, for other academic purposes there is also a 5.0 grading scale).

And gosh, your school is small! (Sorry, haha). I thought mine was small in comparison to others. Or actually, graduating class. I have a total of 730ish people in my class, although expected to heavily drop. Top 10% is around 70.

Congratulations on your full ride, too :)

I'm... I'm kindof screwed on my future. I have no idea what I want to be, haha, but it's going through the medical field as of right now. I'm thinking medicine, like a pharmicist or something. But really, no idea.
