Choosing High School Courses
posted by Corinne .
I want to major in something English or History related, probably Secondary Education, International Studies, or Journalism. I am currently enrolled in chemistry and I am doing horribly. Would colleges rather see me take chemistry and get a bad grade, or would they prefer me to take some elective science, like botany or astronomy, and get a good grade in it? I see no reason in continuing to take chemistry, if it's going to majorly ruin my GPA. Could I still get into a decent college (I'm not looking for Ivy League, probably just a state college or an inexpensive, not highly selective private university)if I don't have chemistry? Thank you for your advice, Corinne.
Speak to your high school counselor. They are there to help you decide what to take, what you need for graduation, etc.
Good choice is to choose high school easy: Algebra 1, PE, and home ec (cooking class) or etc....
English is the best for writing strategy, and reading is kind of good.
