I got my GED!!!! I'm 20, and I've put it off for 2 years now. I left high school in 11th grade to be home-schooled, but the home-school institution became unaccredited in the middle of my Senior year, and they did NOT notify me, so I continued my education for NOTHING!! The state wouldn't honor my Graduate Certificate from the insitution, so I had to get my GED. I was so nervous to take it...but I passed with an overall of 94% and I aced 3 of the subjects!!!!

I put it off until I was pregnant with my daughter..finished it up and then when I was pregnant with my last son, I put myself through nursing school.

Congratulations RaRaRobyn,

You did a smart and brave thing and should be proud of your GPA.

I home schooled my last son because he had medical problems and I got tired of fighting the school system.

OMG! How proud you must be!! That is totally awesome..I know you know..(LOL) what hard work and sacrifices you had to endure, but isn't that piece of paper soooooo worth it?

AND...such a high score! YOU ROCK!

Let's hope this is the start of you putting your feet down the road of HIGHER LEARNING!..lol

What a rush you must've had to learn that not only did you pass with such a high score but you aced those 3 subjects.

not a small feat!

Good for you!

*Hugs!..many many hugs!

Hey! Way to go!!!! I have a degree in education, and I took my kids out of public school because I couldn't deal with the crap any longer. Great that you got the GED...that makes the government happy, but honey~ you earned your education from the "un-acreddited" school , paperwork or not! Now you're legal...BUT you've always been educated. Best of everything to you, and again...WAY TO GO!!!!

You all are awesome!! Thanks so much!! My husband is away right now, and I'm visiting family, so it's great that while Matt has to be gone that I have the support here too!

My husband is Air Force, so the expense was covered by the government, which is I guess who gets the money when you pay, so technically it was on the house I guess, LOL!

Again, thanks so much!! You all made my day...well, besides the whole "getting my diploma" thing icon_cool.gif

Robyn, when you believe in yourself and work hard to get what you want, as you have, you can achieve whatever your goal is! I think you are going into a fascinating field! You can do it!
