Main Question or Discussion Point
Im deciding to go to NEU for a Bachelors of Physics, with a specialization in Education. I don't want to have too many classes, but I also want to get full financial/ student aid by being a full time student w/ 4 classes. Could I have 3 classes and still receive full financial/ student aid? I just have a bad feeling that even with studying 50+ hours a week, I may not pass the classes. I'll need at least a 2.5, I can fail classes but I must retake, I can get a maximum of 1 D and still continue. Here is a pasted paragraph of my message to a counselor of the school that I emailed days ago and have not received a message yet.. "I have a few questions..Hello, I recently finished High School and am planning on applying to colleges for a BA in Physics then becoming a Physics Teacher. My GPA for all four years of High school are presented in the following: Freshmen year: 4.00, I also took Honors English. Sophomore year: 3.8-3.9, I took AP World History for half of the year, I transferred states right after Freshmen year. After one semester, I switched schools to a school that did not offer AP World History so I lost viable credit for that. The rest of my second semester at the new school was a 4.0, I also took Cross Country as an extra-curricular. Junior year: 3.8, Sadly, I did not take any AP's this year, I took Cross Country again though, I took human physiology as well as Chemistry this year (2 science courses.) Senior year: AP Biology, AP Physics B, Cross Country, Track and Field, GPA this year was a 4.2. I don't think i'll get much help from trending though.. ACT composite score was a 26, SAT score was a 1820, not the greatest but hey.. I stupidly did not talk to my college counselor so im in a bit of a hole right now.. What are my chances of getting into NAU for Physics? If I can't get in, can you recommend any other colleges offering a degree in Physics that I could get into with these grades?" AP Physics in High School was probably the most mentally challenging course I have ever taken in my life, I cried at one point.. Now, I want to get a BAED (Bachelors Education) in it, partly for the challenge of it. Im just worried that I may not make it...
