Halp.

Sorry for coming to you guys with this, but I just needed to vent on my (virtual) keyboard.

I've been thinking about dropping out of college lately. While school isn't exactly "tough" for me, I just hate it. I've never liked it, and I probably never will. I never studied before and make exceptional passing grades with little effort, natural talent I guess. Despite that, I just feel that college isn't for me. I'm currently on both Academic and Financial Aid Suspension due to my abysmal performance.

For starters, it's expensive. Even with Financial Aid and grants, I still owe $1600+ for the previous semester. As you may or may not know, I come from a pretty low-income family and live with a single parent. $1600 is a pretty nice chunk of change that I'm not capable of paying off without difficulties. Even if I got that out of the way, the semester coming up is going to cost even more. I just can't do it, nor do I want to burden my parents with paying for my schooling when I'm not even sure if I want to continue.

Secondly, as a reiteration, I just don't like school. Period. I am the first in my immediate family to go to college, I have others looking up to me and pushing me to do my best...I don't want to be "that guy" and drop out just like that. My parents have always wanted me to succeed in school and well, I did, just to get out of high school. However, that piece of paper I got 7 months ago means shit nowadays - a diploma won't get me anywhere in life anymore. It's almost as if society is forcing you to further your education or wind up working a miserable two-bit job just to make a decent living for the rest of your life. My parents are the type that won't take this lightly (not that I'm really sure anyone would), but I have a feeling they'll try to convince me to stay if I do decide to drop out. My life has been a trainwreck recently and it's probably clouding my good judgement right now, but I just don't know what to do anymore. It just feels like I'm being forced to do this, and I honestly don't want to.

Any advice?

I like you, don't like school, but I don't see myself dropping out of college until I have at least a bachelors. There is nothing wrong with dropping out so long as you have sufficient reason, but I say you should try to stick it out as long as you can - at least get an associates in something.

So the main problem im assuming the money?
here's the derp answer, but try getting a job (even though its extremely difficult to find one, and you might not have the time for one)


about the just not liking school thing... just get over it.

Maybe you can get some student loans and pay them back when you graduate and find a job? What about scholarships? I work hard and make good grades and this GAMA organization has payed for my 2 years of college so far, it wouldn't hurt to look into some of those.

I would advise you not to drop out unless it's absolutely necessary, like you said, it will be tough to find a job with less than a college degree.

I didn't think anyone would like school. You'll probably dislike working even more though. So I say stay in school/college.

I prefer working to school. When I'm working, I'm making money.

We go to school so we can get a better job to earn more money to pay back our student loan. Ahh the visicous circle

Stick it out, it gets easier trust me.

This.

That said, I'm weighing my options now. I'm a little more clear-minded now than when I wrote the OP. I'll probably end up staying...just need to turn things around now.

Merci guys and CC~

Im a little late to post here, but I am currently in high school. I am a senior. The problem I have is, as a senior, I have very limited options for classes at this point. I plan on going on to schooling for Business Management, but I face similar problems: Hate school, Low income. I, fortunately, DO have a job, but I suggest to you, stick it out, study a bit (really shouldn't be saying that here, I don't do studying either :/) and try to get out of the suspensions. But, as I am not even TO college yet, I am only saying what my teachers, and a few of my college friends have told me.

Hope my two cents helped
