I agree and this sums up my advice. I am now old. I have never been asked my GPA for for any job. I know a lot of people that hate that they have a G.E.D. I know a lot of people that dropped out of college intending to pick it up later and couldn't. All of my jobs have been "Do you have a college degree?" Yes or no. I am not sure they ever really verified it. I make enough money. A college degree is now a box to check.
College kicks a$$.
There is no "permanent record"
Life goes faster the older you get.
Don't be afraid to fail. You can eat rice and live off $5.00 a day. You will survive and it does get better.
