Has high school really helped prepare you for college?
I typed that question into Google one day because I needed to know if I was the only one feeling this way. An online forum gave me the information I was looking for:
“Not at all.”
“It didn't prepare me at all. It was mostly a waste of time and damaging to my self-esteem.”
“I learned how to write essays in high school. That’s about the only use it’s had so far.”
I decided that wasn’t enough for me. Having random people from the Internet prove my point wasn’t satisfying. I decided to ask people I actually knew. I was talking to one of my friends one day about the subject and asked her opinion:
“Academically? No, not at all.”
