Business is a good route to take. It can open many doors, espeacially when you really don't know whats right for you. I am taking it myself, and plan on getting my masters. It takes time but pays in the end espeacially if you enjoy it.

Country:
I had a rough time in high school, too. I have ADD and a mess of other "problems", but now I'm in college and it's a lot better. The classes are much more intimate (even though they are larger) and it's not so much bullsh*t, you know? I am enjoying it, whereas I despised high school with a passion. It's all about the willingness of the participant, though. Everyone here can tell you to go to college, but if you really don't want to, you won't enjoy it and will end up giving up.

It also makes a difference if you are paying for your education. In high school, it's like you are forced to be there and that does not sit well with a lot of people. When you are in post-secondary, and you're paying for it, you find that the more you put into it...the more you get out of it. And who doesn't want to get more for their money?

I have found that even in University, there are people there on their parent's dime who don't give a damn...kind of like high school. Technical schools are great because most everyone there is there for a single puprose...to get an education and to use that education to get a job and make money...no "professional students"....it makes it easy & fun to learn in an environment like that.

That is my take.

it all depends what you want to do in college, or after you graduate. you can't really take any random college courses and expect a good career. also a degree is 4years, masters is 6 years then phd is 8 years

Here's what I'm doing... maybe you can get some ideas from it...

Basically I HAD dual enrollment, I was in HS and Community College. For almost all of my first year I took things called "CLEPs," College Level Examination Program. They're tests that you can take in lieu of a certain subject. IE, you can take a CLEP in College Math. Once you get your first 30 credits (your first year of college) you automatically graduate from HS. I did this and made it to my second year of College before I was 17. So trust me, whatever you choose to do... look into CLEPs. They save you time and money. I do admit, you don't learn as much as you would in the course. So you should probably try to focus on courses you know you're not gonna need to remember in the future. Hope this helps.

Jeremy

Also, not all colleges accept CLEPs so make sure you check with your college before you start taking them.

For anybody who does, go to www.instantcert.com for a GREAT site with study material for almost all the cleps.

I don't know
but from what I think,
going for higher education is a must. I just finished my Uni honers degree in Economics with the University of Western Ontario. But then I didn't think that it was enough so I am going for my masters in Economics...and I still don't think that it's enough...

This is a very competitive world...getting on top of things is one thing that we would need to do. So I'd say go for a higher education. Aim for something hi right now and once you reach there aim at something higher. Sooner or later you'll be climbing to the top (whereever that is...lol)

But at the end it all depends on how you think and what you feel. If you can afford to take Uni without too much trouble why not? Get a degree or more~
