Before I left Princeton for break, I received a letter indicating that due to my AP scores I qualify for something Princeton calls advanced standing. This means that I have completed enough prerequisites with my APs that, if I wanted to, I could take a leave of absence for a semester in either my sophomore or junior year either to travel or to complete an internship, and still graduate with my class in 2016. Woodlawn has prepared me so much for college that the education I received is equivalent to a semester at Princeton!
