47. Product of four universities… but no degree. Learned what I wished to learn… then scooted. IQ=145 and MENSA member. I’ve tended to think for myself… A dangerous, antisocial thing to do.
From all the replies, I’ve only seen one high school drop out…and that person was anonymous.
I would have thought with all the college folk here, the novel concept of putting a birth year instead of an age would have been more appealing.
Born in 1978, I dropped out of high school during Year 12. And I’m sorry, college kids: there is no such thing as a “college drop out”. Yeah, I know, you all want to have that cool, rebellious “drop out” tag. I’m sorry, folks. You “drop out” of high school. You “leave before finishing” from college.
Quite frequently, I find college students have difficulty thinking for themselves, and are slow to develop common sense and relieve themselves of peer pressure. This is not a complete indictment of college students, but I do notice this fairly often in youngsters who embark upon tertiary education.
There are people who have been to college yet don’t even know how to obtain a ticket for the train, couldn’t tell you the capital of Australia (or if they are Australian, the capital of Iceland, despite probably having a stack of Björk albums, like countless college kids) and think Barack Obama is a communist.
Advanced formal education is important if you want a career as a neurosurgeon, less important if you plan upon making clay sculptures for four years. The belief is those who go to college have the most financially lucrative careers, yet the world is cluttered with achievers who never graduated high school.
… and there are countless college graduates still concerned about their future.
Used to, a college/university could be expected to have the latest ideas/findings on things.
That is just not so anymore.
Bummer when you’re in a college using outdated equipment, or if they’re teaching things that are no longer the standard practice in your proposed field.
Marshall McLuhan predicted such a thing……. and lo! here we are.

59, High School Graduate,
I did go to different colleges for about 6 years but I was usally drunk by midday and that was about par for the course till I got in debt and had to get a job.
currently I’m a custodian at an public school academy and being around young people is really refreshing.
Copenhagen? That calls for this…
Hans Christian Andersen!

32, M.F.A in Film, Up to no good.
-born in seoul in 1988
-film studies & latin american studies
-actually studying (outside the classroom): scotch drinking, social movements, critical theory, cinema, poetry
Good to see someone has bought into the novel concept of listing a birthyear! Let’s hear it for South Korea!
Oki, just for that, I’m going to make certain to see at least one South Korean film at this year’s Melbourne International Film Festival.
I hope we’re still on the topic…
20 – BA English and Film
Yes, we’re still on topic. It’s just my way of praising South Korea. I’d praise whichever country is your home, but I have no clues to go on. Unless you’re from Colombia, then we’re in trouble.
I’m from England
22 – BA in Public Relations
37, MFA in Screenwriting
