NOTHING they'd say after that would matter, because I'd have put them into the mental "idiot" file. Now, if they came to me and said "Dad, I just can't see where going $60,000 into debt that I'll be paying off for 20 years just to have a piece of paper that said I sat in school for those 4 years, and make an extra dollar an hour. I can get a jump start on experience, and if I need school, I can take night classes or get an online degree", I'd be much more receptive.
Almost like he's a real decent father?? I like your style Ben. Honestly I'm going to work on my approach to questions and such on here. I'm abrasive at least- downright mean at most.

Sorry if I don't have a lot of sympathy for a whining upper middle class white kid who ****ed off his first year of college at a decent university shooting up drugs and trying to be "gangsta", and then wants to get pissed off at his parents for not providing him the lifestyle to which he thinks he is entitled.

On that note, does anyone else find it beyond hilarious that suburban white boy wannabe gangsta who idolizes ghetto culture is throwing a tantrum because of the caliber of people he has to deal with at a community college campus? Stay real, homie. You a true 187 thug
Easily the funniest stuff I've read all day--almost ever from you pat. Keep it realz homie!! Lmfao

I have a GED with honors. Vswizzy doesn't like me

My homeschool program was crappy, so I took the best option I had at the time. I also went to community college, but half of my classes were at IUPUI and were the same state required curriculum.

i just think its not fair, cause lets be realistic here
I could drop out in 9th grade, and it would take way less time+work to study for and pass the GED test than it does to graduate

I just wish i had gotten out of going to high school, i hated that
The administration was alwasy trying to accuse me of something, i got ISS once for laughing at a kid apparently in 10th grade.

that, and I couldn't stand most of the idiots i was surrounded by.

HS Diploma, 3.7 GPA in high school. Went to MTU for 2.5 years before having an identity crisis. Took a 4 year hiatus and worked some menial crap while figuring some **** out. Went back to a 2 year Tech School and graduated with Honors. Plan on in the near future finishing my Bachelor's since my job covers $2500 a year for continued education.

My guess is that you were finally interested in the material. I find that I do much better, even with less work, when the class work interests me.

I had a 3.8gpa in college without trying. I also got my GED over a year before others my age would have graduated. I spent 3 weeks in study for the test.

I also came from an upper middle class family, but those things don't bother me.

Nothing in life is fair dude, learn the cheat codes

My HS GPA was around a 2.2.... Couple years after graduating high school walked into the recruiters office and put an 84 on the asvab with my mechanical and electrical portions being in the 90's. Joined a career field with the asvab requirement LOWER than the AIRFORCE minimum (cop). Met an older girl, got married, and now find out that she cares enough about me that she doesn't want me to be a cop when I get out. Because I was a little prick and didn't take CC serisouly I don't have an associates, (which I would have) and now have to go back to school, after 25 and somehow try and keep a standard of living that my 40k+ full benefits made happen.

I cant think of any employeer that would think being qualified on everything from a hand gun, to crew served weapon systems is a hiring trait. Let me wow them with some counter terrorism certificates...... Not gonna put bread on the table like that.

I was raised with the understanding that you get back what you put in. In all aspects of life. Want **** to go your way? You have to work for it. Relying on happenstance and luck will ruin you.

Very true. Just about everything I learned in the military is useless in the civilian world. I had a bunch of fun doing it, but it means exactly dick in the real world.

You could ask the guy that used to work here. He was running an indexing program on our main file server (6.5TB) that brought the server to its knees.

So maybe not great...
