I dropped out of high school at 16 and got my ged. I was able to get into college at 17 with no financial aid of course but thats the price you pay to start college when your supposed to be a high school senior. Theres a lot of things you need to look into before you go and do it. Some states won't give you a ged until your 18 but I was able to get a "unofficial" copy with my test scores that was good enough to get me into college. I got my associates degree a year earlier then I could have if I finished high school. College is expensive though keep that in mind. The school fought me the entire way they said it was "unfair" to other students. You might run into the same problems but hopefully not. I had to go take my test in another school district but it was well worth it. The systems not for everyone >=]

There are many people who do well in life with a GED, but the percentage is outrageous of people who do nothing more than eke out a living with a GED. BUT, a GED is better than not getting anything at all.

Talk with your parents about it because it is an adult decision. If you're adult enough to drop out of school, you're adult enough to talk with them about it.

A GED is equal to a Highschool Diploma the only thing is that a Highschool dipolma shows determination to stick through school. A GED shows that you took the easier route. Which makes your employer think that you might take the easy way out on the job.... thus making them choose the person who will stick out the job and get it done.

You might be able to go to a community college, but if you don't want to go to college, you're gonna be screwed. There are plenty of high school graduates without any ambition in life who will take any job given to them, and they'll get the job before you because they at least finished high school.

Like someone else said, talk with a counselor or a teacher you like or trust.
let me guess...english major??

im sure your a teacher
