Bro, once you're in college, whatever you did in high school doesn't mean **** anymore. After college when you're out looking for a job, they're not gonna be like "Oh, ew he got his GED, he must be a ****** retard." No, they're gonna look at the grades you got in college, the extracurricular activities you did in college, the people you networked with in college, everything from college. Your high school doesn't mean anything.

If you got accepted into college I think it's fine.
Some of my classmates quit after 10 grades to go to technical college (not sure if that's right word in English) and I think that's fine too.

you should be proud because it is pretty much the exact same thing as a high school diploma, you just didn't get it by going through the regular school system. no one in your college or workplace will even care. i dropped out after 9th grade to get mine. my mother has a GED and she is working on her doctorate and makes 6 figures. it literally does not matter. so congratulations on your GED and getting accepted into college and good luck in all your future endeavours.

Thanks for the encouraging words friend! They mean a lot.

I was planning on dropping out senior year and getting my GED (for mental health reasons) but my mother refuses to let me because, even though she agrees with me on the reasons why I shouldn't go back to school, she doesn't like the phrase "dropping out". It sounds bad.
The truth is, people are going to assume all kinds of **** about every aspect of your life. GED, to some, translates to "too dumb for school". Judging by what you shared about your situation, I know that isn't the case. You sound like a good kid, and smart.
Basically, yea, its going to be viewed in a negative light by the general populous. But screw them, anyone in your life who matters isn't going to care.

tl;dr people are judgmental, you sound smart, have fun at college

Too many people place importance on things like this. What your GPA was, what school you went to, ect. It's a sad fact that many people judge other based on these things, but in the end, none of it really matters. I mean, once we're all in the work force, it won't matter what school you went to or how you graduate, just how well you do your job. So, congratulations on getting your GED and having great ambitions in life.

i switched to home school my 11th grade year and i went up to the community college and was able to do a course there and get my ged to become my high school diploma and i was able to graduate with my class.

So wait, you had a GED, and then took a course, and it advanced you to earning a full diploma?
#18 to #16 - kristofe (08/15/2014) [-]
yeah it was only like a 15 course at the college but i dropped out for medical reasons and i was in Arkansas. So my high school diploma already doesn't count for much but it's excepted as a high school diploma in Germany. Not a GED
User avatar #19 to #18 - xbyronx ONLINE (08/15/2014) [-]
I might look into that, I am in Mississippi, but I border Louisiana, which in turn borders Arkansas. I am simply looking to become a police officer which only requires a GED and no diploma or college, but any way I can advance my education and career would be a good way to go.
#20 to #19 - kristofe (08/15/2014) [-]
yeah go for it the class wasn't hard at all it costed money but i don't know how much my dad wouldn't tell me.
#11 - dewiii (08/15/2014) [-]
yeah i agree with most of these people i have a diploma with an asociates and my friend has a GED we both have good jobs so who gives a ****

in the long run man, neither a diploma or a GED are worth much. the only real difference is that a GED means you need a waiver for certain military branch specs and it makes it harder to get into particular colleges, which you seem to have already dealt with.

i wouldnt even think about it. eventually itll be one of the most trivial aspects of your life, it just isnt yet because its fresh to you still.

Those are really encouraging words, thanks man! I hope you are right, I mean once I am a police officer and am happy with my job and live in a house I pay for. Once I am completely self made, then I will truly be happy and then perhaps the issues I am dealing with now will be a laughing matter almost, and seem rather trivial. Thanks again!
User avatar #8 to #6 - heroicdose (08/14/2014) [-]
no problem. for future reference, thats kinda how most of lifes "problems" work out. unless its something permanent like getting paralyzed, youll eventually be in a whole different spot in your life where the problem no longer exists

I wouldn't be ashamed of it if I were you - after all, you got accepted into college, which is all that matters for your career path. If you don't want to talk about it, I'm sure you can think of a way to dance around the question, but you've already proven you're sharp in other ways.

I hope your right, I mean, It is a community college but where I am from Carrier Mississippi United States just about everyone goes to Community college, and the extra smart and sports stars go to Universities.

If you got into University with it then it's something to be proud of

Meh It's a community college. But I might go to uni after. not certain yet. I still have to go to what is essentially boot camp aka the Police Academy after I graduate college.
