Subject:AP scores
Time:11:41 am
hey guys, I don't know if any of you guys have paid the money to find out your AP scores already but I found a way you can sort of determine them for free. If you log in to the Gateway, click on student records and then academic transcript, you can see all the credits that you have earned. Look at the AP policy found at http://abacus.bates.edu/admin/offices/reg/academics/APpolicy03_04.htm and you can figure out about what you got on your tests. I determined that I got at least a 4 on calc and bio, while i got a 3 or less on english, which kind of surprised me. So don't pay the money and use this to figure out your scores for yourselves.

Subject:Graduations
Time:04:01 pm
Current Mood:tiredtired
Well, since this community is a little bit dead, I decided to try to start a topic. Because I am graduating high school in just a couple of hours, I was thinking about graduations and wondering what other schools' were like. So when is everyone graduating/when did you graduate? What is your ceremony like? Does your school have any programs to try to prevernt everyone from getting insanely drunk afterwards?

Since I go to a catholic school :( we have our graduation in the cathedral of the archidocese. It's a really, big, nice, peaceful place. Our graduation is really formal with a prayer service and they don't allow anyone to clap or make any noise after each person's name is called. The Valedictorian and the Salutatorian make speeches and everyone graduating with highest honors or honors is recognized. We also had a mass this morning that was put together by some of the kida in the class, which consists of about 170 kids, pretty big for my school.
After graduation, we go on a cruise up and down the river all night where we have unlimited food, games and some prizes. We get back to school around 5 in the morning and have a quick breakfast at the school before returning home. I'm tired right now and I have twelve more hours ahead of me, I think I'm gonna bring my pillow.

Name: Ben Linder
High School: Concord High School
Hometown/State: Concord, NH
Favorite Quote(s): "The human race, to which so many of my readers belong, has been playing at children's games from the beginning, and will probably do it till the end, which is a nuisance for the few people who grow up" - G.K. Chesterton
Academic Interests: History, German, Political Science, Russian
Favorite TV Show: I'm not a fan of TV in the least, but I have to admit that Alias is fun to watch, as is The Simpsons
5 of your Favorite Books: The Napoleon of Notting Hill (G. K. Chesterton), The Fool's Progress (Edward Abbey), The Book of the New Sun (Gene Wolfe), The Master & Margarita (Mikhail Bulgakov), The Salmon of Doubt (Douglas Adams)
5 of your Favorite Movies: The Boondock Saints (I can quote it at the drop of a hat), The Magnificent Seven (yes Steve McQueen), Following (Christopher Nolan), Dead Man (Jim Jarmusch + Johnny Depp + western = indescribable), Rosencrantz & Guildenstern Are Dead (Hamlet x good dialogue + Tim Roth)
5 of your Favorite Bands/Musicians: Led Zeppelin (nothing tops Jimmy Page and the Howitzer), Leo Kottke (best guitarist in history), The Word (pedal steel master + instrumental covers of gospel songs = genius), DJ Shadow (there is no adequate explanation for his talent), Medeski Martin & Wood (best jazz trio in a decade). (That was tough to choose.)
A picture or two of something(s) you really like: I don't know how to post pictures, but I like hiking, biking, climbing, reading, writing, and the like.
A Picture or two of something(s) that you think is really funny: I am all about jokes like this one:
Why did the girl fall off the swing?
She had no legs.
If this joke makes no sense to you, try biking 70 miles and then telling it. I guarantee, from personal experience, that it will be hilarious.
A picture or two (or more, if you want) of yourself: I look like a lumberjack (that's what I tell myself).
