Do what I'm doing, quit and get your associates in the same amount of time it would take to get your high school diploma with that bloody program.

1. Don't be afraid to drop classes.

2. Don't be afraid to change majors.

3. Don't be afraid to breach your personal paradigm.

4. Get along with your roommate.

5. If you go, don't be late, even if you show up in your pajamas -- it'll be fine.

6. Keep close watch if your stuff.

7. Never trust anyone until they earn it.

8. Don't argue with your professors.

9. Get to know your advisor very well.

10. Go for the foreign exchange program at the first opportunity.

Eh...I'm mostly doing it because I need to force myself to have some kind of academic discipline. Besides, it's just an EXTRA diploma, not the actual high school one.

Lol, that's a rhetoric class.

I was referring to contentions with grades, statements of fact by the professor, and classroom management.

Debate during discussion is obviously encouraged. It's always a good idea to positively distinguish yourself to authority.

Yeah, it's just an extra diploma, but colleges also don't care about it a much as they make it seem. The only reason you would get any preference isn't because of the diploma but because of the course rigor, which can be replicated with AP classes. AP classes however don't have ridiculous structures and you don't have your AP Science/Math/English/Psychology/Etc. IAs all scheduled on the same exact week and all due two weeks later, on the same one or two days. You don't even have to deal with the silly IAs. I literally didn't go to school Junior year and instead of going back for Senior year I'm getting my Associates. Fvck IB.

This. All of this. Also, if you're thinking about grad school (I think you said you are), start prepping for that as soon as possible.

1. You can live in an apartment
2. Single rooms are sometimes available, but at a higher price
3. You can network before moving to a college with a facebook group, and you can find someone with whom you'd be fine rooming.

Living with a roommate is a trying situation, but generally it works better if it is someone you don't know.... for various and unexplainable reasons.
