I’ve also talked extensively with Dad, Tom Hajduk (my English teacher/College counselor from SAAS), Dan Hough (from Mines), and others about this. One of the things that I have may not have adequately shown in my previous letter is my frustration at my ability to show that I know physics. I’m still trying to figure out an appropriate way to do that and any ideas are welcome.
I’ve been tossing around of couple ideas with them about other options and I thought I throw them out here to see what the AFdN community at large thinks:
Test out of Physics I:
I don’t know if this is a possibility, but it’s something that I plan on investigating. I know that you can test out of other classes at Mines.
Work with the Academic Accommodations Office:
I do qualify for Academic Accommodations. Typically, this has been just extra time on the test to alleviate stress.
I’ve already contacted the Academic Accommodations Office and will be talking with them more tomorrow.
Take Physics I and II at the same time:
I actually just thought of this one. I may be able to convince either the Physics department and/or the Academic Accommodations Office to allow me to take both courses at the same time. I know that’s really weird and might not be a good idea, but I think it’s worth investigating.
