    Well, today I graduate Highschool and because no one really gives a damn about it I wanted to share this info with someone, gives me a little moral boost. I don`t really know what to do right now. Making money on the web was of no success for me till now but I`ll keep on trying and who knows, maybe someday I`ll get paid for my work. Right now my options are to work in the summer and pay college or stay home for 1 year to rest a little, I`m so full of going to sit in a desk with a teacher in the front -.- ... Anyway, I`m happy today and I wish you all a happy day and good luck in everything you do, cheers! :)

    Why not get an arts degree? I heard KFC pays good :-?... Joke aside, I`m interested in studying marketing but I don`t really know if I can get in...

    Business schools aren't to difficult to get into. If your grades are a bit low consider community college for a year and boost your grades and apply to a University after. You will be fine!

    Congrats! I got a Bachelors in Social Media Optimization from Full Sail University, from home. Don't get a degree online, waste of money, a lot of money!

    Thanks for the tip but the way things work here in Romania are a little different. Once you start college in a domain you can`t go to another one unless you start over, also community or state colleges are more prestigious and well looked than private universities( here universities give diplomas to everyone just so they get money, and employers tend to disregard those that went to a private institute)

    Congrats!
    Maybe you can start your own business! Anyway, you still have time, maybe the best advice is to enjoy your holidays!

    Would love to enjoy my holidays but I can`t, I need to get money to pay the entrance fee for college. that`s it if I can get in the domain that I want, but I still need to have the money just to make sure . Anyway, I must go to the festivity I have today with my colleagues. Thank you all and take care of you and your families ^_^

    Congratulations! I finished high school last summer and would have gone straight to college but didn't get the grades so now am working a 9-5.

    I'd recommend taking a year out and working full time, then going to college after the year.

    It's a lot better now to know what it's like doing that than only finding out after having studied for 3 years for something that you might not even want to do. It should motivate you a lot more to make your own money too and not have to work for someone at all.
