scores)


Take as many Advanced Placement classes as
possible (Chemistry, Calculus, English, Physics)


College/University


Important to look into programs to check for
credentials, accreditation, and programs of study.

Keep in Mind



What you do can affect your future.


Examples: DUI, shoplifting, credit history, blogging, myspace,
random postings on internet, etc



Because the Biometrics field involves high security jobs
in some areas, you will probably be required to have a
background check at some time



Therefore, what happens in high school and college
may prevent you from living your dream job in the
future.
