I can get my HS diploma

Click here to enlarge

I was in talking to a career counselor the other day. She was going over my transcript and said I was elligible to recieve my high school diploma.

I told her no.

At this poing in my life, I'm over 30, a HS diploma now is not going to change the fact that I dropped out at 14.

I am asking in all sincerity. What doors is it going to open?

Click here to enlarge I have no idea. I just know that more and more places want at least a high school diploma and most want more than that before they give you a job.

I thought you were taking college courses?

Did you get the GED?

yeah I was confused, as I thought you were already taking college courses, but I figured I'd go along with the thought I was wrong. Click here to enlarge

I am taking college courses.

The college offers a HS diploma program. I have worked enough college hours to qualify for my HS diploma.

I have a GED.

Tell the career counselor to move on to someone else with this topic at least...

Right.

If the GED got you into college, then why needs the h.s. diploma? Seems weirdly bureaucratic.

I don't know anything about the GED, but if it's a high school equivalent, than why the hell would you go through the hassle?
