Regret Thread

<p>Here is the thread where you post any of your highschool or college regrets. GO</p>

<p>Not looking into academically challenging colleges closer to home so I weren't so damn homesick all the time.</p>

<p>I should've kept my GPA high enough in order to transfer to my dream school</p>

<p>Not working hard in high school
Not taking care of my mental health freshman year of college</p>

<p>No point in dwelling on regrets though.</p>

<p>Accepting my parents' refusal to let me dorm. They could have afforded it, but they just saw as a large cost that could be avoided. I don't blame them. I probably would have done the same had I been in their position. I did eventually delude myself into thinking that I could have a social life in college without dorming, but that quickly proved itself false.</p>

<p>True but talking about them can make you feel better.
My regret is not having more sex in high school with this 1 really hot girl. I know it might sound silly but I think that was like the hottest girl i ever seen, like there are alot of good looking girls around college, but still she tops em all. Worst part is I heard rumours she likes me but its too late so o well. Otherwise, maybe not exercising as much, but i will start doing that again</p>

<p>Why don't you get on Facebook or something and try to get back in touch with her? Arrange a meeting perhaps? Your problem can be easily rectified.</p>

<p>Not taking SAT Subject tests to be more competitive for an out-of-state school.</p>

<p>Taking stupid 100 level courses that dipped my GPA lol</p>

<p>What glennat said. I was antisocial for half of high school and wasn't even really trying to get girls till the last semester of high school. I'm no Casanova but I'm not completely inept and I think there were a few women I woulda had a chance with had I believed in myself more.</p>

<p>Ah well, at least now I know I'm capable of talking to women. :cool:</p>

<p>Not having started playing volleyball earlier. Now I have to intensely train over the summer just to keep up with the varsity players at my next HS...</p>

<p>Not finding out about the existance of class rank and the opportunities of block scheduling before starting freshman year....and not discovering the existance of the amazing online school that I can access until this year.</p>

<p>Not having enough fun in high school. I was so focused on the academic part of school that I forgot about having a strong social life. I didn't even know about Facebook until a couple months ago (and I'm a graduating senior). As crazy as it sounds, I wouldn't mind another year in high school.</p>

<p>Oh well...things will be different in college!</p>

<p>Whoa. Some of yours are similar to my regrets. I'll list them anyway:</p>

<p>(1)Taking hard general education classes because I thought that if graduate schools saw a class like "Dinosaurs" on my transcript rather than "Anatomy and Physiology" they would think I was a joke. The jokes on me -- my GPA dropped.</p>

<p>(2) Applying to a college in New York City or at least 30 minutes away from home so I could commute. Although, I don't think going to NYU would have made me anymore happier, since I hear of people committing suicide. And that ridiculous price tag without room and board is still ridiculous!</p>

<p>(3) Keeping my GPA at a 3.5 so I could have transferred to another school for Junior year, but my GPA sucks, so I didn't even bother sending in applications for transferring.</p>

<p>Crossing mostly all of the urban schools off my list (Columbia, Penn, uchicago, yale etc). I thought I wouldn't want urban, but in the end I was only accepted at semiurban schools anyways - I don't think the experience would have been much different. Wish I would have Been less picky with my school choices. But then again, I would have ended up applying to 20 schools rather than 14</p>

<p>I also regret fooling myself into believing I wanted an LAC - it's not what I wanted it's what my mom wanted I wouldn't have been happy if I'm being honest with myself - wish I had applied to more universities</p>

<p>in the end I guess it's important to remember that you can change a lot between fall and April. I think there is something to be said to keeping your options open and having a varied group of schools to chose from</p>

<p>I regret not trying harder in high school. Academically, socially, personally... Academically, if I had bothered to crack open a text book and do some homework once in a while, I could have probably been valedictorian. But I just couldn't be bothered. (Depression had A LOT to do with it.) The college that I am attending next year, by the standards of my graduating class, is excellent. But I could've done so much better had I tried a little harder.</p>

<p>I was too lazy to take advantage of most of the opportunities I had. It bothers me from time to time, but there's no purpose in dwelling on it. What's done is done. Here's to college being a fresh start. :)</p>

<p>"Why don't you get on Facebook or something and try to get back in touch with her? Arrange a meeting perhaps? Your problem can be easily rectified."
Get back in touch with her, 1. I never talked to her to begin with, that was the initial problem because she was like a grade younger. 2. I would have no clue how to introduce myself to someone like that over facebook, its like you kinda know them and they kinda know you because you seen each other around but i don't even know if she knows/recognize me, so i wouldn't know how to even start that convo without it being real awkward. 3. I remember checking if she did have a facebook but I don't think she even has one (or she doesn't appear in the search thing when i looked) but that was some time ago. She probably has a hidden profile to hide from all the guys who try to add her but are too scared to talk to her (part of the reason I want to avoid the fb route too) 4. that was also long time ago, i kinda moved on so i don't want to revisit that old thing, plus who knows what she looks like now, maybe she got fat or ugly or does coke, then if i meet her it would be disappointing.</p>

<p>not applying to the school I REALLY wanted to go to. I mean I'm not complaining as I'm going to Penn and really do love it, but I almost didnt apply (finished my app the night before) had no faith that I would get in because I felt too stupid and low caliber. Now I wish I applied to Columbia as it is the school of my DREAMS and maybe I could have gotten in if I gave myself the chance...</p>

<p>^ :( That sucks. From your original post, it sounded like you used to bang her all the time.</p>

<p>Not applying to harder schools. I got accepted 6/7 schools i applied to and i really wish I had gone for some of the harder reach schools</p>
