Just wanted to wish you a happy 17th birthday, have a great day!!!
Happy 17th Birthday Emily. Hope it is a great one.
Thanks y'all !! It's been GREAT so far. I went to the community college I'm going to start at this fall, and was talking to a counselor, and she looked at my accu-placer test scores and told me to go talk to the director of the honors program. I talked to him for awhile before he asked me what I had gotten on my essay. (The special honors classes are really focused on essays and writing/reading skills.) I told him I had gotten a 7 (highest possible score). He asked for my sentence skills and reading scores (117 out of 120 on both), and then he pulled out the permission form and signed it so that I could sign up for the freshman honors course, and told me to take it to counseling right away, because there was only 1 slot left!! (There are 14 slots total.) I got in!!!!! I'm SO SO excited! That was the best birthday surprise EVER! The honors students get to go to special conventions and on special field trips, and a REALLY nice bonus: They've dealt with diabetes before!! One of the former honors instructors had D, and they've had a student with it as well, and they've handled diabetes emergencies before!! So I'm reallllllly excited now . Can you tell? LOL.
ETA: I've changed my major since the last college thread. I'm getting an Education degree with English concentration to be a Reading Specialist.
I'm glad to hear it's been so great so far -- congrats!
Thanks, Emma !
