HELP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! - April 25th 2012, 09:19 PM

Hey I'm Nick and I am going though a problem. well here it go i am in high school and in ROTC but i am tired of the drama and the bulling of high school so now i am trying to get into GCA(homeschooling) for next school year but still do ROTC in the high school because i am doing this thing called NCO(Non Commissioning Officer)because if i do it can help me get a college scholarship actually a 4-year scholarship, so when i ask the school about it they were cool with it but when i talked to the School Headquarters and they said if i am going to GCA i have to quit ROTC which i don't want to do and also i am going on this trip to Daytona Beach in Florida on May 4-May 7 and i already have my money ready to go so my question is which one do i do GCA or ROTC

Hello, and welcome to TeenHelp! =)

What year of high school are you in? Honestly, I would stick it out and complete the requirements for ROTC. Drama and bullying suck, but that's life. If you were being bullied to the point of becoming suicidal, then that would be one thing. That's not the vibe I'm getting from you, though. A 4-year scholarship is a pretty big deal, and I wouldn't throw that opportunity away too quickly. Homeschooling may give you some relief now, but you'll be stressing later on when you have to make ends meet financially. At the end of the day, it's really up to you. What's more important to you: saving yourself from the drama/bullying and dealing with the financial complications later on, or dealing with the drama/bullying now and being financially secure later on?

Again, this is just me - but I tend to look at the long-term plan, and pick what's best for me overall. If I had to deal with typical high school crap in order to guarantee a good future during my college years, I'd tough it out. I'd keep my head down, avoid the bullying as much as possible, and look into changing schools (that may be possible with ROTC - not changing to GCA, but to a different high school that also works with ROTC). I'd be counting down the days until college, knowing that dealing with the drama would be worth it in the end. I'd suck it up now so that I could relax later on, vs. finding some relief now but struggling throughout my college years (and all the years afterward, when I would have to pay off student loans).
