I'm in college! I like it here, its Chico State (in northern california) and I'm majoring in mechatronic engineering (cant major in that anywhere else in the US) and its a really nice place to live, I've been here since I was 3. Sadly, we no longer have a Chuck E Cheese's, but there is a super big nice park :) Its kind of been labeled as a 'party school' but I don't drink and neither do my friends and most the people I know.

Just getting into post secondary is a bit scary because highschool doesn't prepare you as well as they might. Though it really isn't all that bad, they have an army of councillors and students to help you get settled into your new lifestyle. In a way it is a lot more free than highschool because you get to choose your own schedule and pace. One thing you should think carefully about is your major. When you start off you are fairly flexible in your decision, but latter on it can be difficult and expencive to switch majors. Having a plan really helps you out because you can see were you are at any time and know what you have left to do. Most programmes will give you a list of courses that are required for your degree and making a flow chart of the courses and which are pre and co requisite with each other.

 On the subject of finances you can always apply for a loan from a bank or, if available, from the government. It is a bit of a vicious circle that you go to school to get a job so you can pay off the schooling fees, but in most cases people pay their loans off in a reasonable amount of time.

 The most useful, and slightly trivial, price of advice that I can give you is to manage your time well. If you fall behind in your studies and readings it can be very difficult to get back into it. The professor will not give you any leniency so it's on you to keep up. Having school friends that you can corroborate with is very helpful because while the professor will most likely have office hours, they cannot always be there to answer your questions.

 If ever you get stressed out there are always people at your university or college to help you through it. That being saidthere are also people on here or acquaintances in real life that can give you help or just let you vent.

I'm going to music school possibly
I first gotta find one and either drop out of high school or complete high school since most music schools I've seen don't require a diploma

I'm a sophomore in college, and I'm studying graphic design

I'm excited because next year I am moving into an apartment with Pixel!

As a sixteen-year-old, I should technically be in my third year of high school, but I'm somehow taking college classes??? I'm just at a local place, so it's not huge, but I have plans to spend my first four years working toward a career in ultrasonography, and maybe going back to school for criminology (It really interests me, but I can't see myself doing it for a living.), a couple years later, if things go well.
I'm hoping to stay in NY for a while; I've got my fingers crossed that I'll end up at schools in Rochester and Syracuse.

Yeah same^ I'm starting community college courses in a week, mostly to make up credits. I'm a junior in high school but only have a semester's worth of credits, so I'm participating in Running Start which will give me a year's worth of high school credits each quarter. The plan is for me to go into Marine Biology or Oceanography rn.

In the state of Alabama it is very nearly illegal for me to actually begin college till I'm 18 (if it was up to me I would graduate highschool this year or next year.), but I'll be taking college level courses starting next year.

Psst, come to California! Maybe the Sacramento or the San Francisco bay area? ;)
In all honestly though, I really do recommend it. The LGBT+ community here is really big and supportive, there are lots of resources. So is the furry community, if that's something that's still going to interest you, haha. ^^
