What should I do? - January 29th 2009, 05:21 PM

I'm not exactly the best student. Last year, I've gotten C's and D's, and this year (Sophomore, Grade 10), I'm getting straight C's. I want to go to a school that isn't an embarrassment, but then again, I know I'm not going to go to a good school. My goals are either becoming a Writer, or working with computers and/or video games. I'm too lazy to be a writer, and I know that it's incredibly stupid. Also, there's no future in video game-related stuff, as virtually every single school or course dedicated to video games is an embarrassment.

So what are you wanting to know, exactly?

Okay, I'm dealing with how to get into college now and so forth. I had good grades Freshman year, and then really dealt with depression last year. I got even a few F's. What I'm doing now, is working really hard on getting good ACT scores. Then good SAT scores in March. I'm also going to write my personal essays on how I've 'overcome depression'.

Why are you getting those grades? Is it because you're not doing the work? Do the work. Is it because you're doing the work, but never hand in anything on time? Hand it in on time. Is it because the material is difficult, or you don't understand it? Ask questions; the teacher should be glad to answer.

Unless you're J.K. Rowling, being a novelist isn't a great source of income, but if you like to write, you can ALWAYS do it as a "side project", and have some sort of "day job" that pays the bills. If you like writing, what about journalism? That's usually a better source of income than being a novelist.

You say you like computers. What about computer science?

Maybe look in to starting off at a community college for a year or two, and then transferring in to a 4-year university. Lots of people do this. I don't know where you're from, but in, for example, California, it's really easy to make a transition like that. You could start off at a community college, and go on to a top-ranked public school (UCLA, for example) or a top-ranked private (Yale? etc.).

Also, do remember that some colleges won't look at your grades from freshman year.
