I'm currently 18 years old..19 febuary. I graduated from high school last year, and I'm currently just working and trying to sort out my life. I'm living in Alberta, Canada...but I was born and lived in the US for the first 10 years of my life. My parents were born in canada so I am a dual citizen. I would suspect this would make studying/living in the US pretty easy. My entire life, I've had a deep passion for math and science. One problem I've had over the past years as a result of my broad interests, is narrowing down my prospective field of study. The only thing I know for a fact is that I want to go to university and study some form of math or science. But here's the catch... I really messed up my last year of high school because of certain problems I won't get into at the moment. So I'm sitting on an embarrassing core average. I need to get myself in gear and focus on my future. I'm going to have to do some upgrading before I can be accepted into an institution. I just need some advice and support...which is why I came here. I'm going to have to upgrade by re-doing a lot of grade 12. I have the option of going to my old high school for the second semester in January and taking the courses over again, or doing them at home. Another option i have is applying to a college for january, and upgrading there for 2nd semester and transfering into a university from there next year.
