You can get into college. Your grades will have more to do with what college you can get into and whether you get scholarships.

Does Harvard look at the grades you received during your freshman year of high school?

Yes! Your freshman year grades are a part of your overall GPA (grade point average), which is a major factor in admission to any college. If your freshman year grades are poor, sorry to say that Harvard is unlikely to accept you since the are so competitive. However, there are many fine universities that may even grant you an academic scholarship if you are able to substantially improve your grades during your sophomore, junior and senior years. The way most colleges look at it: they'd rather take a student who started with low grades and improves over his/her high school career than take a student who had high freshman grades but poor grades in senior year.

If you suffered your first semester of freshman year but brought it up and did awesome your sophomore junior and senior years with AP and Honors can you still get into Yale?

You might still be able to get into Yale if you graduated high school taking AP classes and receiving honors awards if you have a good reason for suffering your first semester of your freshman year. Sometimes a person with a lower GPA and better extra curricular activities will do better in an application than a person with excellent grades and no outside interests.

If your 15 what grade should you be in?

a 15 year old should normally be either a freshman or a sophomore. You're supposed to turn 15 sometime during freshman year, so then you start sophomore year at 15 too, and later turn 16. A few states allow some 15 year olds to be juniors, if they have unusually late cutoff dates for starting school (a few states don't even require a child to be 5 until November or December to be able to start kindergarten, so if you start at 4, that means you'll still be 15 when you're starting junior year of high school).

What features should I look for in trying to find a cheap laptop for a freshman in college?

The short answer to this is to look for the basics. A freshman in college needs Internet access and basic word processing functions meaning that you should be able to find a laptop well under $1,000. The exception to this is if the student is an arts or graphic design major. In such case, you will need more than a basic laptop for school to be able to complete required projects. A college freshman is going to want a durable lighweight laptop with internet access a good processor and hardware compatibility for external hard drives, intranet connection and other uses.

Which grades in high school are most important?

All. Colleges look for well- rounded students who have good academics, participate in athletics, and help out in the community. Colleges tend to look for improvement over the years. For example, if you get a 3.4 gpa in your freshman year of high school and get a 4.0 gpa in your junior year in high school, it shows improvement and that you worked hard to get better grades. On the other hand, some colleges may look at your sophomore and junior year a little more closely because that is when most students are adjusted to high school and working to their full potential. This is the time when you start taking SATs and AP classes. They usually do not look too closely at freshman and senior years because during your freshman year you are adjusting to a new environment and getting used to it. During your senior year you are relaxing and preparing for college. But that doesn't give you the excuse to slack off. If you have a scholarship, and you get bad grades in your senior year, they can take it away. Remember too, that high school is a learning experience and you shouod be able to enjoy it as well.

Will you be able to get into a good college if your GPA was 1.5 your freshman year but it was 3.8 your sophomore and junior years?

Your cumulative GPA will be lower due to your first year, but what you have going for you is that you recognized you weren't fulfilling your potential, took steps to correct it and succeeded. Grades are realied upon heavily when colleges look at prospective students, but so is character and a pattern of responsibility and potential. I wouldn't worry too much if you keep your grades up. Extracurricular activities on your record also look very good. I was in this exact same situation in high school. I started first semester freshman year with a 1.6 gpa, but I repeated a course and got it together the years following, and ended high school with a 3.3 gpa. I just finished my first semester at the University of Northern Iowa with a 3.8!

A redshirt freshman is a player who sits out their first year of attendance at a college. In NCAA rules you can only play four years.

Will you be able to get accepted to a four-year school if you did badly your freshman year of high school and your GPA was 1.14 but the next two years you did very well?

While keeping great grades is key, most colleges evaluate your JUNIOR year to determine admissions requirements. They often discount freshman year because of transition changes from middle school. Though your freshman year is not as imporotant, your overall GPA and class ranking will still suffer from your bad year. Basically, it is not as important by itself, but it still matters in the long run. You are currently in your senior year, so those records aren't always available at decision time. Good work in your Junior year will make you or break you.

Playing Junior College Baseball?

Junior college baseball is a great way for a person that didn't make it onto a college team to play baseball. Of course, many players use junior college as a stepping stone to make their way onto a university's roster. It isn't that difficult to get onto a team for such a school, so most individuals will be able to get through tryouts without any problems. From there, the possibilities and opportunities are there for a player to excel in the game of baseball.Why would a person want to play baseball in junior college?Most players would be foolish to go to a junior college instead of a university to play for a ball team. Unfortunately, not everyone that wants to play on a college team will be able to make it. That means that some will need to go somewhere else to get in more experience and try again later on. JCs come in at that point because they allow just about anyone to make the team and get in some playing time. In most cases, that kind of experience can't be obtained anywhere else when a person doesn't make another university team outright on their very first try. How hard is it to make a junior college baseball team?Fortunately, the competition on a junior college baseball team isn't that stiff, so just about anyone with basic playing skills should be able to make the team right away. Tryouts at a JC are about the same as with any other baseball team,b ut the players there really aren't that great in most cases. A person that just barely missed the cutoffs for a four-year university team will undoubtedly be able to pass the tryouts for a lesser school without exerting too much effort. Still, that doesn't mean a player can just sit around and do nothing. Is it a smart idea to play junior college baseball?For players that want to play baseball at a real college, going to a JC can be a good idea if that person didn't make it to their team of choice at first. Getting more experience gives a player more opportunities for making the team during the next season. Without this experience, a player's skills will definitely deteriorate rather than improve during that time.
