I was talking to my english teacher today about what i want to take next year, and the class in general. He started talking about how i should look at technically oriented schools, like mit and similar. I agree whatever i do beyond highschool will be related to a technical subject, and would prefer a school that has an emphasis on this. I dont find myself going to New England institution of art for example.
But sometimes he, among other teachers, make it sound like you need straight A's to get into a good college. For the most part, I am an A, B student. I usually do very well on my finals and midterms though. Now part of me is saying, I doubt everybody who goes to college got straight A's throughout highschool...But then the other half says, "What if he is right?". So what is it REALLY?
