• Is my school wrong...?

    I was in Algebra 1 in 9th grade, in Florida, and passed a test that is equivalent in other states as passing in Algebra 1. When I went to my new school in Pennsylvania, they said I needed to take it again. At the time, I wasn't very smart and said "whatever, I'll just take it" without saying anything about my case.

    I was in Algebra 1 in 9th grade, in Florida, and passed a test that is equivalent in other states as passing in Algebra 1. When I went to my new school in Pennsylvania, they said I needed to take it again. At the time, I wasn't very smart and said "whatever, I'll just take it" without saying anything about my case. Well, it turned out I didn't need to take it, and didn't pass it. My guidance counselor tried to fight the fact that I shouldn't take it again by showing my record from Florida saying I already passed the equivalent test down there, but they claimed since it was already in the system, that I needed to take it again and pass. Is this right? Are they allowed to do this? I'm in my JUNIOR year and now need to take it, even though I haven't done the class since 9th grade.

    I'm in this huge dilemma. There are just so many things that interest me, I honestly don't know what to be... I'm a 9th grader with a 4.24 GPA Astronomy- I love astronomy! Like learning how black holes were created, and especially connecting my religion with astronomy. I have a book that proves the Big Bang theory and other theories by what is written in the Qur'an (I'm Muslim). Biology- Specifically Ophthalmologist. I used to think it interested me, but now I'm not so sure. It kind of like a safe path for me. But Biology does interest me. Neurology/Psychology- Okay, I'll never do brain surgery. I can't. But studying the brain, and how people think is just so amazing. I'm doing the Stanford Marshmallow Experiment for my science fair. Artsy- There is this HUGE chunk of me that is artsy. I Love painting, poetry, writing, drawing, sewing, designing sewing projects, orchestra (violin), music (composing). My life, literally. Pilot/Astronaut- I'm so serious when I say this is what I would pick over anything, but it's hard to have a family life when your on mars, or flying across the Atlantic Ocean. Help! Thanks in advance! Sorry, forgot to capitalize "Mars".

I want to transfer to New York because it's always been a dream of mine and I will be better off in this field opportunity wise. However, I am money constricted (as all college kids), because my parents' income is too large, and I am paying for myself. I also am concerned about safety because i'm from a rural area and am a young gay male. FIT is number one on my list, but are there others to consider? Thanks!

Also how do the two compare to the CSU's? Say San Jose State and Monterrey Bay.
