    so barry's daughter must be as gifted if not more gifted than Eva Smerekanych

    unless you are trying to save money to graduate early or get a double major there is literally zero reason to post AP scores...

    you're better off taking the classes in college, getting those locked up As and partying your ass off until the shit you learned in the AP courses finally catches up to you...

    and jesus what kinda high school did she go to that had 19 fucking AP courses...

    Had to be a private school.

    Yes, I went to high school in the 80s, but my public school was one of the top ranked in California and had a ton of really really smart kids, and we definitely didn't have 19 AP courses. I took 4 - History, Chemistry, Calculus, and Computer Science, and the Comp Sci one I had to do off campus at another school in the district.

    I also think I agree with you that you're better off just re-taking the course in college, scoring the easy A, and having extra time to relax.

    I taught at an Ivy League school as a visiting prof for a few years right out of PhD school, and while there had a student who was very goal oriented, wanted to attend a certain top notch grad school that specialized in a highly demanding field, and was working on completing a double major, with a foreign language minor thrown in for kicks, in only 3 years and one summer, as she already had a conditional acceptance at that grad school to start in the fall if she good all of her undergrad coursework done by the summer. The only way she was able to graduate so early with two majors was to because she had gotten credit for a number of intro/common core courses by taking them as AP courses in high school.

    Which prompts me to say: To each his own. If you want to chill and enjoy more of the social aspects of the college experience, then follow Druff’s “chillax” advice. But if you are innately driven to try to “own” the world by the time you are 30, go for it! And for inspiration, listen to the very excellent podcast called “How I Built This” hosted by Guy Raz.

    This is blatantly false. Colleges look at it, and it affects your weighted GPA a lot. If your GPA is below a 4.0, you're basically an idiot and not getting into a good school.

    yeah they look at if you took AP courses and how you did and your actual grade in those classes matter to your weighted GPA, but the actual AP exam for placing out of courses means zero...

    I think I took 6 APs, took one exam so I could get outta taking the actual final exam in high school but I wasn't about to send in any scores and miss out on those free As in college...

    If my kid can hack a half to a year off college with AP credits....more power to him.

    At $25k per year, it’s worth it.

    He can party on his own dime.

    Tough but fair...in Texas. However, most private schools around here will give you moolah to match the public’s

    And some privates in town are total shit....

    ill say this as far as who paid for those "free" As...I probably wouldn't have graduated any earlier if I decided to pass out of the classes I could have (and who knows if i woulda even gotten 4s on the AP exams...i mean fuck my calc teacher gave me a mercy C in high school...got to college and breezed through 4 semesters of math with straight As...i thanked that woman everyday for just beating our asses in high school...)...I might have been able to get a minor, which means absolutely nothing...however those "free" As allowed me to boost my GPA so I was able to graduate magna...

    did that mean anything at the end of the day? got me...can't go back and see if I woulda gotten my first job without it or been accepted into grad school without it...but it sure the fuck didn't hurt my case in all of those things...

    My high school in El Paso was a total shit show...half my teachers only taught when it was review day....other than that it was read the text book and answer the questions at the end of the chapter.

    I don’t even recall there being AP classes, between the race riots and rampant drug use it’s a miracle I got the hell out of there.

    My team did win district in basketball though, football too....I kept the bench extra warm.

    I too graduated magna and went on to grad school...did clep out of 9 hours of English which was nice...

    Listened just long enough to hear she was swim team.

    Tell me more.


    Public school kid lives in my neck of the woods got a half ride for 4 years at Harvard cause he could pitch. Finished this summer. Once you’re in you are a lock to graduate.

    Another local Prep School kid made it Harvard Freshman year but might have been cut or hurt. Lost track

    World is full of smart kids.

    that fucking blows, especially if you actually are trying to get something outta HS...I got lucky that I went to a good public school where the teachers gave a shit...

    my calc teacher was an older lady, wasn't an overt ball buster but she wanted to make sure she got us prepared for being freshman in college the next year...never forget walking into my first college calc class and shitting a brick that I was gonna get fucking creamed...Aced the first test and never looked back...really regret not making a trip back to my high school and thanking her for having mercy on my soul and passing me with a C and for preparing me so well...

    props on passing outta English...I shoulda done that one...who wants to waste all that time reading and writing fucking papers...
