I am a high school drop out, and proud of it.Quote
You should be proud- that is quite an achievement! I am proud for you. Did you put this on your resume with your other accomplishments? When you go to job interviews do you say "I dropped out of high school, and I'm proud of it"?
Mark Geragos went to a law school that I've seen ridiculed on this board (Loyola CA) and George W. Bush was a C student. Love or hate either of these people, they are proof that academics matter very little. I also know a guy from Harvard law who's really dumb, for what it's worth.
