Question: I have been in marching band for 3 years at my school, but I cannot stand it one more year. All of my friends tell me that I need continuation in my transcript but I have done lacrosse, French, concert band and NHS for going on 4 years. Would it be bad to quit marching band? I am also a Girl Scout, and with the extra time it would be easier to complete my Gold Award.
