Junior scheduling


Most sophomores are thinking about how they want to create their schedules for junior year. They needed to take many things into consideration.

   At the start of second semester, sophomores prepare their schedules for the upcoming year.  For some, this could be a stressful time.  

   Whether it is deciding which classes to take or scheduling to take difficult classes, the whole scheduling process can cause some stress.  It can be hard to make sure you’re choosing the right classes that will be the best for you and your goals. Not only do students need to make sure they are going to meet the credit requirements to graduate, they also need to take classes that will best prepare them for college and are geared towards their career paths.  The problem with this is that some people aren’t always sure of what they want to do in the future. Trying to choose what classes to take while not knowing what direction you want to go can be stressful. Lake Central has so many options to choose from, and the variety is helpful for the people who have an idea of what they want to do in the future.  For example, those who want to go into the medical field can take the many science classes offered here, while those going into business can take the business classes.  

   The variety, however, can also be stressful.  Because there are so many classes for each subject, it can be hard to choose which ones are best.  Once you reach a certain point, you get to choose almost every class in your schedule, and deciding which of the core courses to take can be difficult.  This is because you can’t tell how difficult a certain class is before you take it, so you can’t decide if it will be too much to handle or not. There is no way to know this for certain until you take the course.  By then you would need to go through a process to switch out of the class, which is something not many people want to do. Because of this, scheduling can be a stressful time that requires a lot of time and consideration.
