Excerpts from an article by Rachael Scarborough King (Making It Count)

Don’t let yourself get halfway through with high school and realize you need to make yourself presentable to colleges. Classes and grades count from day one.  The class choices you make your freshman and sophomore years will affect the courses that are available for your last 2 years of high school.  In many public school systems across the country, it is a sad fact that there are simply not enough guidance counselors to allow the time to distribute unsolicited information.  So, make sure you understand your class choices, so that you won’t regret your course decisions later.
