Which is not to say that dropouts can't make big $$. I have a number of friends who went down the trade path and are doing quite well. Having strong sales instincts and working hard go a long way, apparently..
If college is not for you then at least pick a trade or tap into that entrepreneurial spirit (or both).

well, i got my schedule for my comm. college. i talked to a transfer advisor from the university and asked her what classes i should take that would transfer so i wouldnt waste any money taking stupid classes for no reason. So in the spring, I should be able to attend the university. So, I am taking Pre-Calculus 1, English Comp 1, and American History 1. That will give me 9 hours, and since i only need 6, i will be able to get in!Today I fell and felt better, Just knowing this matters, I just feel stronger and SHARPER!!!, Found a box of sharp objects, What a beautiful THING!!!

I agree with the ones that say that grades don't mean much in the real world. It's all about who you know, rather than what you know. I've been a lab assistant at the local community college for 1 year, and because I'm pretty cool and talk to everyone, I alreayd have a job whenever I graduate college as a part-time professor (I forgot what they're called, but it sounds like intern).
Of course, it's not the best job out there, but since I plan on going back for my master's it's a great job mainly because I can go into work whenever I can (as long as it's the same time as classes, but those usually last 2 hours at the most).
Another example, a really good friend of mine got a job as network administrator for another one of our friend's dad's company. Started at $25k a year, and 3 months later was getting $40k. I doubt anyone here gets that much after only 3 months of work with as AS degree.
