How would an early HS graduation affect admission chances? My sophomore DS is considering pursuing early graduation because we will be moving before the start on his senior year and he really wants to graduate from his current school. He is ahead in both science and math so he will still complete AP Calc BC, AP Chemistry, AP Bio and AP Physics before an early grad in addition to AP Eng, several years of AP History, 2-3 years of german, 6 varsity letters and should be inducted in NHS. Test scores should be solidly above the mean based on PSAT scores. Class rank is top 3%. He would be lacking in leadership and would not be able to attend boys state. He would still be 17 by I-day. So would graduating early be a huge negative on his application? Thoughts.
