Did you graduate from High School or did you drop out?
When I finished High School, I still had sixteen years of education ahead of me. In today's world, where a college diploma is worth less then a high school diploma was worth in the 1930's and 40's, I honestly cannot envision the future prospects for someone who would drop out of high school. How many career path doors does that slam on you? I don't get it. A friend's child just got a job, no kidding, in a company mail room...yes, sorting mail. The "minimum requirements" for the job were a college degree!!!!! (their justification was they could not afford to hire someone who could not read fast, understand critical verses non critical mail sorting issues and who could not be counted on to read past how things were addressed and make sure critical communication was sorted to the right person).
