i was just wondering, i don't know if many people here would know the answer to this, but i've been debating on whether to get a 504 or an IEP. i know i need at least a 504 to get through next year, and i could probably qualify for an IEP too... the thing is, i'm really dead set on getting into the college that i want, but i'm worried that if i strive for an IEP it'll make it seem like i'm a slacker, or i can't work hard when i need to. i really think an IEP would help me, because i know i'll have such a hard time as it is just going to school full time, and then i can't spend three more hours on homework...so a decreased amount of homework would really help, at least in one or two classes. but i don't want to try for an IEP if it'll make me look bad on a college application. once i get my FM symptoms under control, i fully intend on cutting down on the IEP if i do get it, because i feel like i'm cheating other kids at my school out of getting a hard-earned grade if i do get one. so i guess i'm just asking is, does anyone have any teenagers, or any college age kids here who actually have experience with this? i really want to get all the help i need to get through this next year, but again, i don't want to look like a slacker. ANY information on this is greatly appreciated. -danielle.
