Yes! The sad truth is that once you have one semester of college course work completed your high school grades and test scores are no longer a consideration. University administrators only care if you are able to do the course work. Which tells them more about your abilities??? high school work or college work? Personally I didn't learn anything in high school and didn't even graduate at the top half of my class and it hasn't hindered me at all. If you don't get into the university/college you want the first year just "bloom where you are planted" and then you can transfer later. Transfer students have it a lot easier than first time freshman's trying to compete with every other applicant. My advice, don't even stress about it.

It shouldn't matter when you take the SATs. The best thing may be to take it in your sophomore year as a practice run, and then again in your junior or senior year. The pSATs aren't really a good practice test for them. if you take it to early colleges probably won't accept you

Depending on how good you play and how good your grades are. Freshmen, Sophmore, and Junior year are prep years for Senior. Realistically speaking senior year is the only one that matters.

Why would a college senior be interested in a college freshman or is it too good to be true?

When your in college it is a different time and different relationship circumstance than in highschool as those variations of senior and junior don't normally matter being that your older now and it is not looked down upon and more accepted in college. The segregations of ages as in highschool doesn't exist anymore.

If you got straight A's freshman and sophomore year but messed up junior year can you still get into a good college?

More info: I was in high level classes all 3 years (honors and AP) with almost straight a's (one b each year, but a for the final grade) freshman and sophomore year, but junior year I lost motivation. The final grades ranged from B-'s to A's with a B-ish average, but for quarter grades I got a few C's and one D+. Obviously I can't get into Ivy League, but if I get straight A's first semester of senior year, could I get into a good college like Carnegie Mellon? Or if not maybe Penn State Main Campus? I know junior year is the most important year for college- can I be saved? :( ---- Of course you still can get into a good college . . just make sure you study extra hard your senior . . just as you did your freshman and sophomore year . . and you should definetely get into a good college . . .

How is a university different from a community college?

An University is an institution for higher learning with teaching and research facilities made up of a Graduate School and other Professional Schools that award Master's degrees and Doctorates and an Undergraduate division that awards Bachelor's degrees. Most Universities require four (4) years to attain a Bachelor's degree, an additional two (2) years to attain a Master's degree and another year ot two to attain a Doctorate. These time frames are general and can vary according to how many hours a student undertakes in each semester or quarter and the field of study in which they are enrolled. (I personally know one fellow who took ten (10) years to earn his Pharmacy degree which normally takes five (5) years to earn. Of course, after he earned that degree, he went into the insurance business. Go figure.) A Community/Junior College is an institution for higher learning that offers Associate's degrees. The general length of time to earn an Associate's degree is two (2) years. Some fields of study offered by Community/Junior Colleges can be completed in a year or less. Many, if not all, credits earned at a Community/Junior college may be transfered to a Senior College or an University. Note: Since good athletes are not necessarily good students, a current trend in College athletics is to have prospective football and basketball players who are academically ineligible to play for a College or University attend a Community/Junior College to bolster their GPA to the point that they can obtain admission to a Senior College or University. Some Community/Junior College football or basketball teams are capable of defeating Senior College or University teams although they do not actually play those teams.
