    Hi, I got accepted into the AIM program this summer part I. I'm really concerned about my test score I've taken the ACT again I got a 26 on Math a 23 on English and 22 on Science I'm still waiting on my writing score. I've taken Pre-cal and Cal this year and I receive an A. Do I need to take Chemistry and Physics next year. I was just looking at taking Physics.

    Do you know if I got a good chance of getting into the School?

    We were just at an admissions briefing last week. The three classes he said that MUST be on your transcript are pre calc, physics and chemistry. The average ACT scores were 28 across the board.

    Curiously, you posted in another thread about "your kid" getting accepted, but now you say you got into AIM?

    I never took chemistry, took two years of physics instead, and they sent me to prep school, so... It really doesn't matter what your scores are, you need both classes regardless.

    I'd take both (I did take both, honors and AP).

    You will be required to take chemistry and physics at CGA, so, regardless of your application, if you get in, having both subjects under your belt will be helpful when it's time for you to take both classes again. When I was a cadet, we took chemistry our freshman (4/c) year. I took honors chemistry at CGA. Haha, it wasn't easy. We took physics our 3/c year.

    LITS, why on earth did you do that?!! It doesn't really do much for you, unless you went CHEM in MES...

    Perhaps you wrote it wrong…..

    Then why did you say "I got accepted" and why did you talk about your ACT scores if you were talking about your "kid"?

    Troll exposed, that was easy.
