I go to a small rural school in South Dakota, and I'm worried that it will hold me back. I only have 14 kids in my grade. I currently have around a 3.6 GPA, not sure what the exact number is. I have participated in football, basketball, and track and field every high school year as well as playing baseball in the summer. I also scored a 29 on the ACT. I am most worried about me not being able to take challenging courses such as AP courses. I just passed College Algebra with an A and will be taking college composition next semester, but other than that, i have only taken core classes and electives, because that is all my school offered.I did attend SLE and recieved a congressional nomination this week, but after seeing all these kids on here who didn't get in and had better academics than me, I'm worried. Does my small class size and less challenging course load greatly diminish my chances or no? Any help at all is appreciated.
