I want to just get my GED and go to a community college keep up hope and transfer to a better school like a university or something. If all this was to happen would the GED still look bad?
Read all of this post. A GED is the equivalent of a High School Diploma. The difference in both of these is you control how fast you get your degree. You choose how many classes you want to take. I had a friend who got her GED in two years. I chose to try and get my diploma so I can graduate with all of my friends. I found out during senior year that I would not be acquiring my diploma due to me missing to many credits. I dropped out there and then, and got my GED in three months. I got it faster than my friends graduated. I also decided to keep going an extra two months and obtain my Diploma. I did it for my mother and father. As of my knowledge, a GED does not look bad. A university will not look down on those who have one.. but If your that worried about it - you can get your GED, start going to college and still take some adult school classes on the side and get your High School Diploma. Good luck, and I hope this helped.
Sorry I just read what everyone else wrote and they are just wrong. None of them know what they are talking about. I obviously know cause this is what I did. Community College is the same thing as getting your GED. You choose how many classes you want to take, so you make your own schedule and how hard you want to make it. You can succeed with a GED. Dont pay attention to these *******. I am currently going to a CC and loving it. Also, my brother got his GED 6 years ago and has been attending a University for 5 of those years. He is majoring in Engineering and finishing in a year. This shows that you can succeed with just a GED. I am also majoring in Fire Technology and finishing in a year and a half. Like I said, you can do it.

GED vs. High School Diploma?
I think you can do anything you really put your mind to, it has nothing to do with being a "hard worker" or not, maybe you just had a hard time in high school and couldn't make it. Just because you didn't finish high-school does NOT mean you are going to fail in university. You are trying your hardest and it is great that you are looking into getting a GED or a diploma to better yourself instead of just sitting around and doing nothing about it. You Go!!!!
A GED is the equivalent of a High School Diploma, the difference in both of these is you control how fast you get your degree. You choose how many classes you want to take.
But there is a good website to research different kinds of degrees:
It lists the different degrees for different subjects, requirements and levels.
I would try to stay in school until graduation. The reason is that if you cannot directly go to a CC you will only have the ged and that does not make you very competitive in today's job market. A diploma shows an employer that you have endurance and you can go with the flow. A ged tells an employer that you have some smarts but you could only sit still enough to take the test. However, if you do go directly to a cc and finish in two years with an associate's degree, many employers will see that you have tried and have succeeded. Remember also that your high school diploma is free while you will have to pay for a ged and for cc.
It sounds like a good plan because once you get a degree, you don't have to mention your high school ever again. The problem is that your idea is not new. Most with that idea eventually drop out. Most CC students drop out...so it's even worst for the GED graduate. Life is about hard work. You have to wait in line, work hard, and grow like everybody else. If you quit HS, who is to say you won't quit CC...when CC is even more demanding?? Being patience and safe is not a bad idea either.
If you can't hack it in high school, what makes you think you can succeed at a university?
True, once you graduate college, no one ever has to know that you got a GED or took classes at a community college, but transferring from a community college severely reduces your university options. Sure, you'll be able to get in at a local state university, but private schools will probably turn you down, as will any university with prestige.
Suck it up and graduate high school. It's really not that hard.
Yeah the difference is in highschool they just give it to you and with a G.E.D you have to actually show up and earn it .
