The senior class last year (they were juniors then) had some very strong individuals academically. They pushed for it and got college credit via the nearby community college, but they took it at school (one of our teachers has a PhD in physics and extensive mathematics/computer science abilities, so he was qualified. Not the norm at my school, unfortunately). This year, about three other students and I wanted to take it, but there weren't enough other students that wanted it. Basically, we can take the course and essentially "self-study" it, but we don't get college credit. At this stage, I'm more of taking it for the fun of it.
I was thinking about going into physics, but I'm not 100% sure. I mean, I love the subject, and doing research seems like a fun idea, but I was also thinking about going into criminology or getting a private investigator license. They're really different, but for some reason both areas fascinate me.
Do you have any career plans post college solidified?
I feel like the reason I end up taking them is more of a "because everyon else does," which is really a stupid reason. I don't really like the AP system because it's not comparable to a real college course, so I can see why universities wouln't offer credit. Do you know what you want to major in once you transfer?
