Blane Smith arrived in gray sweat pants, an orange T-shirt, sneakers and his high school golf team hat. He emerged from the dressing room nearly transformed, wearing a traditional black tuxedo, a black necktie and matching vest - and his Mount St. Joseph's cap. "The hat has got to go," his mother, Brenda Smith, said. "I can't wear it?" the 17-year-old asked with a mischievous grin. "No way," she responded. "You're not wearing it." Blane was one of about five dozen high school boys to cycle through the tiny dressing rooms with the flatteringly tinted mirrors at Cy's of Catonsville one busy afternoon last week.

Today, a third of seniors have taken at least one AP course and exam. At the same time, the percentage of graduating seniors who scored 3 or better - the score required by many colleges to receive credit - has risen from 14 percent to 22 percent.

Katie Staso's optimism was fading. The University of Maryland senior had mailed 30 resumes in September to give employers time to peruse her internships and solid grades as a chemical engineering major. But as spring approached, she hadn't heard a peep. The St. Mary's City native thought she might become another casualty of the recession. Instead, she and other graduating seniors around Maryland are finding that, if they have a little patience and flexibility, there are employment opportunities in a job market that has improved slightly for the first time since 2008.
