    youre a loser if you drop out. school is not that hard. i know enough people who have dropped out and theyre not doing anything too exciting right now. unless youre a rapper or something, theres not much youre going to do with your life without a diploma.

    I dropped out and you DON'T want to do it. School isn't that hard..just stick it out and do your shit. I've got my ged and I go to a COMMUNITY COLLEGE...I don't ven go to a real college. Its also going to make it a bit harder to get a job when they see that you got your GED instead of a high school diploma..it shows you took the easy way out. You have no idea how much of an embarassment it is to admit to people that I didn't even finish high school....I feel like a loser on a daily basis...stay in school.

    dropping out of school now isn't such a great idea, but if you have intentions of finishing highschool at one point or another, then thats cool. just finish highschool in your own time.

    I left school on a technicallity ... I was able to go on to college, but I technically have not graduated high school (don't ask, it's a long story). That was quite possibly the biggest mistake I have ever made. I has not made that big of a difference in my life, but I'm always wondering, "Will I be able to get this job or that job without a high school diploma?" "Will I be able to get back into college when the time comes without a diploma?" You get the point. Do yourself a favor and stay there ... even if it's the worst place on earth.

    If you are getting beat up everyday or something like that, consider home school, or a GED, but DO NOT drop out! The only reason that I have a good job now is because I'm damn good at what I do, and I had to work my way through a bunch of shit jobs to get here.

    ok thanks a lot. i'm just seriously pissed off and overworked at school right now, but it will probably get better in a couple of weeks. here's another question, how many of you are in art school, and how difficult do you think it was to get in? i'm thinking about art school a bunch...

    If there was ever anything on this board that I feel I might say that would ever make an important difference in someone's life this would be my chance to do it! DO NOT DROP OUT! I repeat DO NOT DROP OUT!!
    Fools do that and they always regret it.........
    My mother and father are both dropouts and I wish I could have grown up a little more on the rich side of things.......
    Think about how you would want your kids to grow up if you were to ever have some.....then you would want them to enjoy a good life and you have to think futuristically!
    Do not do it!!
    Fuck no! Do not do it!

    I took fine arts in university in 1997. The school that I went to, while claiming to be open to ideas and "deep", were a bunch of close minded, Jackson Pollack splattering morons. I dropped it, and started working at a tattoo shop.

    Art school is a great place to learn history, theory, and basic technical aspects (line quality, colour theory, perspective). I wish I was enrolled in a better program, oh well. Regardless, I had to complete high school to be there.

    oh well. Graffiti and tattoos... sounds fun. Cheapest way to travel...

    Dropping out of school was honestly one of the smartest things I have ever done. It never challenged me in ways I could use or relate with, and was more stressful than I felt the need to deal with.

    take high school while it's free...i thought about dropping out, but take a look at our world today, a low percent acctually make it without there high school. theres lots open too you, ya just have to find it. dropping out is the best choice for some people, but man, education is expensive...like art school...i was looking into it a while back, and it would cost me 4000k a year.... now this is broad right but high school is a valuable experience.....plus the ladies are easy

    try to make enough money to go to school (art) and acctualy live like a human...it's hard enough...
    then try to do that without your diploma...sure things are diff in the states, but they are hard all over
