  • pretty much!!!!
  • Not the end of the world, but definitely the end of a lot of opportunities and open doors.
  • No but it's possibly the end of your formal education and without an education these days, you are severely limiting your career potential.
  • Dropping out isn't the end, but it may make it harder to find a comfortable job without a university degree.
  • Nah but great grades will go towards great opputunities in jobs/life!
  • No absolutely not. It just limits your choices much the same as being a convict.It is best to just go ahead and get your diploma or GED.
  • No ! It's not the end of the world, but, it's only the beginning of a life long, very hard uphill battle .
  • no way. I dropped out of high school and I am now a Nurse. I picked up later. Better late then never right?
  • No, it's the start down a long frustrating path of disappointments. It has no advantages, nor any benefits. I've only known one person who benefited from it, and that was because she dropped out her senior year, immediately took an equivelancy test to get her GED and started College that year. She didn't want to wait through the fluff classes she had left her senior year and wanted to get right into her college curriculum.
  • NO, but you better have a plan B. You need to do something to make a living and support yourself amd/or family. If you worked for yourself or are already set for life then you may not need school.
  • yea wot he sed down below
  • No, but it could be for someone who doesn't know how to handle it.
  • one world ends another begins...
  • No but I would be interested in why you would. People always say I will go back later and get a GED but most never do.
  • No it's not the end of the world. It is, however, the end of being able to drift along not self-motivated. Once you quit school it is a certainty that you will get no further than you push yourself to get. By this I mean there is a certain "paved road" of steps that staying in school entitles you to. Diverge off that path and you are off-roading and will have to work twice as hard to forge a path for yourself. I know because I took that road. I was lucky, but I wouldn't recommend it to anyone.
  • Not if you plan to commence work or studies elsewhere. Sitting around doing nothing will not help you in any way at all and you'll likely stagnate and end up in a boring and depressing rut with very little skills and education. Take the chance while you have it to learn things and make a better a life for yourself - you can do it and you're worth it :)
  • I find that many people go on to have lucrative acting careers after they've drop out of high school.
  • I am a drop out. I work along side of high school graduates making the same wage, or even better wages than some. The difference is that is they decide to move on they could. I am stuck. I am one of the "I can get my GED later people". I got a waiver to take the test when I was 17. As of age 25 I still have a 10th grade education. So to answer the question... No it is not the end of the world, but it definetly defines what kind of life you could have while in this world. But then again there are always exceptions...
  • No it's not the end but it sure is like wrapping a huge millstone around your neck and asking you to swim for the other shore.
  • It was the beginning of my world. I know I will get in trouble for this :)
