Re: Dropping out of high school - January 13th 2017, 12:08 AM

When I was in high school I almost dropped out my senior year to finish school online. However, when I went to talk to a counselor about it, she told me I would be much less likely to get into college if I do that. I know school can be boring and hard to get through, but it is important. It shows colleges and employers that you are able to finish what you start, can handle a workload, that you have time management skills, etc. High school will be over sooner than you think. And besides, it sounds like you just started. Give it more time and really think about that decision. High school may not teach life skills, but it does teach standard information that is useful later in life. Sure, I don't need to do math problems since I own a calculator, but many information and skills you learn can translate over to jobs.

And here you are living, despite it all.
