How could I possibly shadow or contribute to my mentoring?

I have found a mentor that is a professor and a social worker with her own practice. When we first met we discussed things I could do, such as research and just asking questions in general, one of her suggestions was to shadow, but we were both concerned about the ethical dilemmas that would form as I am a highschool student although I do dual psychology classes at college which technically made me a college student. Many college students shadow professionals in the mental health field because they are studying that field, would this make it more acceptable if I were to shadow my mentor while obviously following HIPAA laws, ethical concerns, and getting the patients okay.

As a high school student, how do I know if a hobby isn’t what I want to do after high school?

I’ve always stressed over the question “what do want to be when you grow up?” because of how many hobbies I have. I wanted to be a writer for a very long time but I’m starting to think it is just a hobby. I love to do theatre and improv, along with art on many different mediums including digital art. Are these all just hobbies or could they be something more?

Do you think it is worth doing the IB program to get into a top 20 school?

I selected my classes for next year and chose to do the IB program. I am starting to regret that choice. I would rather do partial IB. Do you think It’ll look bad if I drop out of the IB program to do partial IB? My goal is to get into a top 20 school. Also my school is an IB school so they do not offer AP classes. I am currently in 10th grade.

Is high school honors worth it?

I'm wondering if high school honors matter to empoylers. I already got accepted ED into Northeastern University, so I assume it won't matter to colleges if I didn't get one. I'm planning to drop a math class as I hate math and it just stresses me out. Will Northeastern rescind my application if I drop that math class? I failed the first term of that math class, so I retook it, but will they recind me if I don't finish the second term. Will graduating from high school matter to empoylers at all?

How do sat and lsat work? Can i take lsat as a highschool student? What classes are good to take as a high school student in prep for pre law? What are good extracurriculars to do? I currently do key club, art club, mock trial, student council, ambassadors (basically students and staff working together to bring the school and community together), choir, show choir, musical theater, dramatics, i have a part time job, and i try and help around the community. I also was in NJHS and I do girls golf. I would love to do ice hockey but currently can’t because my school does not offer it. Thanks for any help!

Is it possible to apply for an ADN (take an online course) at the age of 17 and being a junior in highschool without a highschool diploma?

The course could be through a community college, but it needs to be online. My goal/thought process is to be able to do this and have my ADN around graduation of senior year so I can begin working in the field and gaining experience while then attaining my BSN. Is there another approach I should be taking instead? And can I even apply to a community college for an ADN without a highschool diploma since I am a junior.

Hi, I am in a CTE high school, and I am currently a freshman. I am in the Robotics program in my school, but I have a strong interest in Medicine, and going into the medical field. Although I am not in the medical program in my school (too much people), do I still have a chance of potentially going into the medical field?

My grades are good, I am taking advanced classes as a freshman that normally a sophomore or junior would take, (Algebra 2 and Chemistry). I enjoy both and am doing pretty good in them.

I have to take fine arts at my school, but which should I choose if I want to be a doctor? Does it matter at all?

My school has a fine arts requirement to graduate. I would like to become a doctor and am not very interested in art. What genre of classes are best for my situation? My school offers choir, band, orchestra, theatre arts, visual arts, dance, technical theatre, and art history at various levels and subgenres. Does it even matter that much and should I choose any of them? This is high school, by the way!

School Struggles: Big Goals?

Hello, I'm a 14-year-old high school student facing some challenges with attendance and grades. I've had a history of truancy and a few suspensions, and I'm currently struggling in some classes. Despite this, I'm determined to aim for admission to either Choate Rosemary Hall or Phillips Exeter Academy. I'm aware my current situation may seem like a stretch, but I'm committed to improving during my freshman and sophomore years with the goal of applying during my junior year. I'd appreciate any advice or insights from those familiar with these schools or experienced in admissions.
