I hated school. I went because of fear of my life from my mom. She said she would kill me if i didnt go..

When I was younger I didnt understand what here malfunction was.

Now I am older I realize why to older people school is sooooo important. It does several things.

1- by being in school it allows you to interact with other people (some cool and some not but important to learn how to be around them all)

2- Going everyday teaches you the importance of following through. As you get older you HAVE to work. You cant say "I dont feel like working today" you have to work or you dont get paid

3- The more you learn the better your chances are to succeed in life. And usually you make a bunch more $$$$

4- Sitting in front of ur comp allows you to escape reality. (good in the short term, BAD for the long term)

Just do it, school is good for you and knowledge truly is power.
QFT. You will be able to "know people" and get in with certain people by going this route also.

I disagree, that's what university does for you.

How exactly do you get into a good university then? How do you do well at the university? How do you write good essays and do well in math without the proper level of high school education?

I didn't mean it like that, it's the people you meet at uni .

I did awful at school, but I'm doing a lot better at uni, don't have to do essays, and someone else is teaching me math (Seeing as school didn't teach it to me). My uni's not that highly ranked, like 40 or something, but unless you goto Oxbridge it doesn't really matter, getting a decent degree is the important thing . Infact tbh, none of the stuff I did at school has helped in any way at all towards what I'm doing at uni.
