[SE] 17-Year-Old Wins Intel's $100K Science Prize. - Page 7

post #61 of 78
When I was 17, I got a summer internship with UCSF and realized that science was not a good career field to me. I joined the army after high school and am now in school studying history lol.

Good for him. At least he doesn't have to worry about paying his way through college or finding a job later on.

In related news, I have so far received over $60,000 ($45,000 scholarship, ~$4500 for one bursary, and just under $7000 for a wide variety of prizes, small bursaries and grants) in awards. Why isn't anyone making a thread for me? I'm jelly that I don't have a thread. Then again, I didn't even make the local news >.<

In that case.
Not in most.
I have several extreme examples of people who went to public school being incredibly maladjusted. Shall I use those as proof of my argument?

FWIW, I grew up homeschooled from 3rd grade to graduation, and was among many homeschoolers of different ages throughout that time. I do believe I received a better education than most, but we also had a resource center available where we (as homeschoolers) could selectively take classes to supplement our homeschool education.

Went in and out of college just fine, other than it took me an extra year because I was indecisive about my major.

Worked my butt off during school, and have continued to do so. I had a job lined up in my profession 8 months before I graduated, and am still working there today.

There are more weirdos in the homeschooling world than you'd find in public schools (at least speaking in terms of a ratio), but that isn't because homeschooling makes them weird - it's because their parents make them weird, and are usually attracted to homeschooling so that they do not become unweird, for lack of a better term. It's not the fault of the homeschooling process at all, it's just the product of the people who are attracted to the idea of homeschooling.

My wife and I plan to homeschool our daughter as well, and any future children we may have. I just don't like the direction public schools are going with larger classrooms and lowering the learning requirements to raise up the perceived intelligence of the kids. It's just not right...

the reason people isn't making thread about you because the prize he won was sponsored by intel
