    So a couple years ago I made a post on here after finishing my first term at community college with a 4.0. You guys were not impressed.

    Update: In June I will graduate from the University of Oregon with a Bachelor's of Science in Political Science with a 3.95ish GPA (that's upper division only as they didn't count my community college GPA in my total) as a member of three honors societies. I will attend Colorado Law in the fall, a top 40 school.

    Who bad now? :p

    PS: Any HS members in the Denver area? I move to Boulder in July!

    Hey you guys tore down my last accomplishment, I wanted to make this one stick.

    I have a normal sized head about it. This is the product of lots of long hours of study and the support of my amazing family, I'm just a gear in the machine.

    Contracts and Business with an interest in sports and entertainment. My dream job would be to work in house on a legal team for a professional sports team or something. But that's years away, my current dream is to survive my first year of law school haha.

    I wasnt trying to be diminutive - I could only stay in school for 4 years max... any more wasnt in the cards for me. Maybe thats why I am jaded towards higher education.

    Tell me about it, you are talking to a guy with a 1.7 accumulative in highschool. Education is different when you hit your late 20's, your world view/priorities change and suddenly the classroom isn't bad at all. I could not have done this straight out of highschool, not even close...

    NAIL ON THE HEAD lol

    I actually had a psychology class where the professor set the curve at the highest score under my score so that the curve had meaning.

    practicing, I have no political ambitions

    I stopped going to class around march, didn't take a single final, and still pulled off a 1.8 gpa :D

    For serious though, congrats.

    2-3 more years of school and you'll need to earn 180k a year to break even on tuition :D
