Believe it or not, not caring about your exams IS a sign of low intelligence

because smart ************* realize the importance of school.

I am 24, dropped out of college after two years, and I have a brand new car, and a brand new house. Getting a piece of paper that says you are good isn't worth dick if you actually are not good, just studious. Getting good grades has led to a generation of entitled, self-important morons. And no, I am not a tradesman, union worker, or drug dealer. I just happen to know what the hell I am doing.

I see you failed statistics. Ever heard of an outlier?

My uncle didn't go to college, started his own business, and now makes more money than my engineer father, but that is a case of "man bites dog."
Let me tell you about another high school drop out I've heard about.

Yeah....... There's a difference between being smart and being intelligent.
User avatar #95 to #68 - srskate (01/23/2013) [-]
please state the difference?
User avatar #103 to #95 - eliteqtip (01/23/2013) [-]
Intelligence is ability. Smarts' is information, knowing things. There's a difference, though it's a common misconception.

they usually correlate.

He wasn't talking about not caring,
He was talking about having high grades.
User avatar #97 to #49 - srskate (01/23/2013) [-]
they usually tend to correlate. I've seen some people who aren't the smartest but work damn hard. On the contrary, I know a few people who don't work at all and pass AP classes with flying colors. Nothing is in black and white.

This really only applies to countries where you can have a normal future.
Come, try and live and grow up in Serbia.. No matter how good you are in school or bad you will be ****** completely either way. Going to any "ivy" league school as you people call them, is a pipe dream. Maybe if you have a perfect score you will have a chance and win the lottery and get a scholarship, the 4 or 5 of you will go on to have a future..
The rest of us will just have to make it with diplomas which don't count in any other country in the world unless you take some certification ******** after which they will proceed not to give a **** about you.
So.. yeah.. have fun with your "future" nonsense, whatever that is.

Do you intent to be a doctor, or a lawyer?

When you compete against the Asian Master Race you need As... you need As coming out your goddamn ears. Trying to get into the really competitive courses in a good University is so restrictive that you need to major in theoretical physics, study worm holes, design a time machine and travel back to meet your previous self to give them a 25 hour study day.

That's how I got my doctorate anyway...

And you still agreed with me. You realized the importance of school and got your **** together. The part where you have to pay for extra years of college sucks though, bro.

Also, full ride scholarships

You're work isnt quite complete yet.

Community college is about as cheap as college comes. My family is low income so we get FAFSA tuition grants. Also I may decide on not going to a 4-year college after graduation. It all depends on how I feel during my 2nd year.

If you actually tried through high school you do realize how much easier it would've been to become a psychologist right?

No, I don't see. Offer empirical evidence.

EMPIRICAL EVIDENCE:

the entire system schools decide acceptance on.
If you do well in highschool, its not a matter of "Will I get accepted," it becomes "can I afford this Ivy league school."

The tuition at the college of my choice runs at about the same tuition as my high school. That said, you can earn scholarships while in community college.
User avatar #98 to #81 - srskate (01/23/2013) [-]
so it just takes an extra few years of your live

regardless, if you still didn't care about school, chances are you wouldn't end up with a high paying job. School is important.
User avatar #102 to #98 - desuforeverlulz (01/23/2013) [-]
I feel that I need the extra time to decide what I want to do, do some self searching so to speak. Plus it's nice to spend more time in school, expand my mind and stuff. Also if I take state required classes at community college I won't have to take them at a 4 year college, I can just elect to take whichever classes I want and have a very open schedule.

School is important if you think having a high paying job is important. To put it simply, I have a rather zen outlook on life. I don't place my self-worth in how successful I am or how much money I will make. I place my self-worth in who I am, and I must say I'm happy with myself. As for a job, I would prefer to be self-employed.
User avatar #104 to #102 - srskate (01/23/2013) [-]
I consider school important because I want to create. The greatest people throughout history were learned, and they improved the world because of it. I want to have a lasting impact, contribute to the wealth of humanities knowledge, and to someday be plagiarized in a college essay.

Does innovation really matter if the innovations made won't save our species? I want to go into the field of psychology. I might be able to make postulations and hypotheses and be able to prove them true after evaluation and testing, but in the end the human race will die out. We are a flawed species. Our time in the universe is limited.
User avatar #107 to #106 - srskate (01/25/2013) [-]
Bro, thats not a fair argument. Everything dies and eventually the universe will be without life.

The events following my death don't affect me in anyway. When I get older I'm going to be an asshole to everyone so I can be remembered as such, so my dying thought can be "at least tears won't be shed over me doing this".
User avatar #109 to #108 - desuforeverlulz (01/25/2013) [-]
This is going back to what you said in comment #104.
