I don't want to continue posting if your all HS dropouts, so I thought I would take a poll.

HS- Year 12 (Lower 6th Form). Learnt about electron structure a bit today :D, s,p,d, and f. Damn, it's interesting stuff. Also weird- stuff not interacting despite being on the same orbital, but in the other direction, and shiz.

*hug* Didn't you meet awesome people there? If you did, it wasn't a waste of time.
Money perhaps. But not time.

I know my piece of paper was a waste of money. But, not time. I'm glad I did it, cause if I didn't go, I wouldn't be living here, and I wouldn't have met these awesome people. And I'd probably still be living in my parents house.

As long as china is still hungry for minerals when you finish your masters you will probably be pulling in quite a lot of money as soon as you are done.

Obviously, you didn't receive the specially made map of social circles and who they are permitted to speak to. *starts unfolding a giant map* As you can see *points* high school dropouts are NEVER allowed to associate with elitists, even though some of them, are, in fact, elitists themselves, thats why the circles overlap, and have that weird blackish-whitish color in the middle. Over here, we have the nerds, as you can see being beaten up by the circle of jocks... :roll:

We don't have colleges where I live (Israel), you skip directly from high school to university, with three years in the army to cool your head.
Any spelling and/or grammar mistakes in the above post are due to Israel's defective education system. Not that there should be any, but it's always better to blame someone else.

It's sort of true. Are you actually double majoring? My school only had a department of "Physics and Astronomy" so I have a physics degree with astronomy as a booby prize. I know more geology than astronomy. Maybe you can do better with astronomy than i've done with physics. . .

Well I'm only starting Uni next year, I'll be doing a B.Sc in Physics with Astronomy. We don't really have majors and whatnot over here, it's a single degree that covers both subjects.

Hoping to get a nice research job somewhere afterwards.

I got my high school diploma last spring. In my Junior and Senior years of high school, I was enrolled full-time in a community college for dual-credit, so I also have an Associate in Science degree. I'm now transferred to a university as a Junior, seeking a bachelor's in computer science.

Hasn't really helped my social life, though. I also skipped 7th grade, so typically all my classmates are like 3 years older than me...
