I'm 18 in the state of Pennsylvania. A senior in high school with a GPA of 3.0 for the past 3 high school years (in all CP classes).
First my reason for wanting to drop out:
I am depressed and unhappy in school. It's not the academics, I just don't see why I should go to high school if I don't enjoy it when I can get a GED quickly. I have not made many if any friends through my entire high school career. I haven't gone out socially, often, for a long time. I go to a catholic school. It's not that I'm made fun of I just can't take a joke anymore. I'm just so depressed in school I feel like just walking out.
My reason for this post?
How do I drop out? How can I get a GED? Will I get into college with 3 years of high school and a GED? Do colleges care that I am dropping out of my senior year rather then junior? Will I have trouble getting into penn state's Wilkes-Barre campus? I have a 1480 on my SAT and 3.0 GPA? Do my 3 years of high school grades matter when I drop out?
