Since you usually apply before you're out of high school, it's actually while you still have to ask to go to the bathroom. And if you have a late birthday like mine, you can actually begin university at 17.

I graduated at 16 and started taking college classes at 17.
Just over a year has passed and I ******* hate it.
User avatar #53 to #39 - nyxeos (12/30/2013) [-]
I'm about half way through my third year, with another to go. I don't hate it, but I'm not a big fan either.

And now my dad is adding in the idea of me taking a year off to work so I can pay off some of my incredibly worrying student loans. Oh joy.
User avatar #56 to #53 - Durp (12/30/2013) [-]
I've paid for all my classes/books so far out of pocket because I don't want to have to worry about student loans.
User avatar #72 to #56 - nyxeos (12/30/2013) [-]
I can't afford that. After everything is added up, the government is giving me about $11500 in loans ($7300 of which I have to pay back) plus another $2500 in grants. And that's only for this year.

People act as if college is going to lock you into a job for the rest of your life.

It doesn't, you can always change jobs later
User avatar #31 to #28 - AnomynousUser (12/29/2013) [-]
Then what's the point of college except for a very expensive few years of partying hard?
User avatar #35 to #31 - Crusader (12/30/2013) [-]
1 - To network, to make friends, keep in contact so that 10 years down the road you have a list of people who you know have general skills needed for certain tasks

2 - To help you figure out what you want, my brother went into law and security foundations thinking he was going to be a cop, passed, but afterwards realized that he didn't want to be a cop and instead started doing private security work (bodyguard, bouncer, etc)

3 - There are people who do know what they want, so they got through school to become it and then have a successful life
User avatar #36 to #35 - AnomynousUser (12/30/2013) [-]
I'm just gonna go there for the life lessons you can't learn from anything other than partying hard and getting wasted.

Ask to go to the bathroom?   
   
Is this some sort of parent/child tradition in the US? Kids have to ask their parents to go to the bathroom?

In ours we acted as adults and most teachers were cool. There was an understanding that respect works both ways. For instance, I'd ask to go to the bathroom and usually it'd be no hassle. If they said something like "You should've gone earlier" then you knew they were a dick and you could just say, "Look, I'm 18 years old, what am I going to do? I need these A Levels, why would I waste my own time by leaving for no reason?".

Having said that, if you tried to pull that **** before age 17/18, you'd end up being treated like an infant.

At my school going to the bathroom counts as a tardy. 3 tardies equal 1 absence. 6 absences and you fail. There is an appeal process but every single teacher and staff member I've heard talk about the appeal system says its for show and that no one really gets appealed. mfw I have to use the bathroom

Yeah of course, you can do that over here the second you're in college, East Australia. So about 15 years and onwards, if you treat your young adults as children they will only ever act as children, if you treat them like adults they'll move forwards and grow up.

I think they're meaning in school when you had to ask the teacher to go to the toilet and then their answer was usually, "You should have went at break." MFW.

Probably because you're an idiot.

Or, you know, because in other countries, we were educated to simply get up and go whenever we need to, as long as we don't interrupt the class.
User avatar #71 to #60 - toosexyforyou (12/30/2013) [-]
Leave it to Europeans to use learning about the school's bathroom policy as "we were educated."

I'm from Brazil (South America, if you are bad in Geo) and was taught that way. Friends from Canada and Australia told me their schools were like that too.

It annoys me when Americans call toilets "bathrooms". If it doesn't have a bath, it's not a bath room.
User avatar #73 to #54 - bdevils (12/30/2013) [-]
I actually hate using the word bathroom. It makes me feel like I'm six.
User avatar #74 to #54 - critality (12/30/2013) [-]
I call it a washroom, most people I know call it that as well.

As an American, I concur. I don't understand why they don't call it the restroom, or toilet.

well how the 			****		 does "restroom" make more sense? Nobody goes in there to rest you go in there to get 			****		 done

explain how its not a rest from class? Restroom is very appropriate

Pretend that you don't know that a restroom means toilets for a second   
   
Now pretend you just heard the word restroom for the first time   
   
You didn't think of toilets.

because grammar and all it's arbitrary rules are stupid

I never used the toilet at school, I went to the lavatory for different reasons

Well, you can still go in and splash around in them if you want, but their primary use is "footwashers"

And do tell where you're going to get a connection to said person for such a job. A lot of people make the connections through internships which are offered through college and university programs, or external programs which typically require someone to be undergoing a degree program.

Also, do tell how you expect to get qualifications in order to do the job. Last I checked, a lot of major professions specifically outline on the job requirements "requires at least X degree", something very hard to circumvent without.

A degree alone won't get you the job, that's obvious. But it's a complete falsehood to say that having a degree is not necessary or at the very least highly recommended to get the job for the field for the vast majority of specialized fields. More than just a piece of paper that says "I know about X major", it shows your commitment to your work.

Just because certain famous rich people like Bill Gates, Mark Zuckerberg or Steve Jobs dropped out of college doesn't mean most people don't need a degree.
User avatar #37 to #34 - pandation ONLINE (12/30/2013) [-]
Doesn't matter who you know if you aren't qualified. The only jobs that are relevant in this discussion are the jobs that require a degree and that's because it shows you're knowledgable enough to be qualified

If the boss has a reputable or even decent workplace, he's not gonna just hire his friends or their kids. Unless the jobs you're thinking of are janitors or of that nature, it's a job you don't need college for and not an alternative like you're suggesting
User avatar #61 to #43 - kinginyellow (12/30/2013) [-]
Ya hiring a kid with no education in a high priority job, he wouldn't last as a boss.

Also you ask 18-year olds to make huge decisions based on the knowledge You taught them, when 5 months ago you all almost made a whole country hobos. (i.e. crisis)
