    You're still more likely to get in if you have a high school education behind you. The same applies to finding a job.

    I would have a high school education, it'd just be a home schooled one instead of public. Besides, if I'm not up to the states standards for education, I'm sure when my mom takes my stuff to the evaluator she'll tell me.

    It's not just about the academic things. Home schooling means you don't work with other people. Therefore no one has a clue how you perform as part of a team. Anyone who goes to a public school will have at least some experience of working in a group, so they'll always be above you in that respect.

    As far as working in a team goes, that's why I'm in Girl Scouts. Our troop worked together and made a total of over 100 chemo caps for kids in the pediatric oncology part of the hospital. I could explain our system if you don't think that took team work.

    I'm sure the awards I've been working toward will look good on an application, seeing as the one I'm starting on this year is equal to the Eagle Scout in Boy Scouts.

    And yeah I hear there is an anime club at the high school, so I'd at least fit in somewhere. My main issues are with the schedule changes (I'd be getting up about 6 hours earlier then I am now), getting lost in the big building, and only knowing enough people to count on one hand that'd be there.
    You'll get used to it, EM.

    Care to elaborate as to why?

    I really don't think I will anyway though.

    Just trust me EM. Don't do it. Public school is literally the worst thing in the world.

    I sense that I'm going to get shouted down by people who want you to fail.

    Maybe I'll take a tally and interview my friends that go to the school to find out just how bad it can be. I shall also make note of your points about going either way.
