Still in college, but so far loving college allot more than k-12

Its tough as you have to learn how to apply your knowledge & skills, but rewarding.

Or in short, you go from doing what your instructor says to doing what your mind does.

College is more demanding. I liked high school, because I just showed up and got good grades. I actually have to apply myself in some classes in college :/

This is the downside, unfortunately.

University offers a bit more freedom. It's a lot more work.

But better than HS.

Still in college (have 3-4 years ahead of me) and I prefer it. Now I have the chance to concentrate on a particular field of study and I like the freedom as well. Plus I now have friends.

I HATED k-12, but had a good time during my undergrad. My master's and law school, however, were/are not what I'd call a "fun" time. Juggling work, my own business, married life and other responsibilities while trying to finish up my JD has been exhausting. Also, I don't think I'm even remotely as in love with the idea of being in law school as my peers appear to be - they really seem to relish it, while I'd much rather be growing my existing career/business than sitting through another lecture.

School was boring and so was college but in college I wasn't stuck in the classes all day and I could just go home when I wanted, so college.

I enjoyed high school more I think. I loved the freedom of college though.

I enjoyed my last two years of High School a lot more than college :P I was a teacher's pet so I got to do whatever I wanted, and since high school's homework is easy I had straight A's :lol: I still do in college but it's a lot more demanding of me :P High school had more events, things going on and my social life was a lot better in high school xP In college just about all I ever have time to do is study and go to work and then do homework once i'm home :P

College probably. In school you couldn't do anything irregular without getting picked on. In college, a fair portion of my class gathered around a computer monitor and watched My Little Pony when it was first popular because that's how little we feared judgement amongst fellow peers there.

I hate college. I wish I was still in highschool. In high school all I cared about was eating, sleeping, and beating off. Now, in college, all I feel like doing is sleeping, eating, and beating off. But I have a lot less time to beat off. My roommate has his schedule posted, but sometimes he will come back really early and be like ohh class canceled, and ill tell him to stfu im trying to beat off. n hes like dude u beat off? n im like uhh yeahhh touching your meat feels really good, n im like u ever buff a pickle? n hes like yeah but im not doing it to you. n im like cool that was just a test to see if you were gay and u passed!! yayyyayayayaya!!!!!!! WU TANG!!!!!!!!! KANICHIWAHHH

School life. I bonded stronger with the people there and had less worries (financial, important decisions, etc). College life has obvious benefits though.

School was annoying (due to "bullies", If I can call those Cro-Magnons that), boring, and really easy. I enjoyed it, but it felt like a waste of time while I was there.

College was fun, engaging, and way more lax, but also caused me so much stress I had a nervous breakdown after I managed to fail out.

It's a tough call.

Right now I'd probably rank it:

  1. High School
  2. College
  3. Grade School
  4. Middle School

College is fun, but I'm missing a lot about High School.
