Originally posted July 5, 2017. A friend of mine recently posted on Facebook about her son’s concern that he won’t get into a good college if he doesn’t take four AP courses as a high school junior. (He’s taking two as a sophomore.)
I’m so old — how old are you? — that when I went to school, classes started after Labor Day and graduation was at the end of June.
If I wanted to play a sport, I signed up. If I wanted to be in an activity, I signed up.
And when school let out for the summer, that was the end of it until my parents said it was time to start school shopping.
