    College is way better than high school. For one thing, the schedule is more flexible. Classes are more interesting, and you choose your schedule and professors. If you do not like the syllabus or prof, you can drop and add courses to your schedule. There are so many wonderful opportunities in college: you will meet people from diverse cultures, customs, etc. and this will forever change you for the better.

    Congratulations on your success. The best is yet to come. Good luck.

    I think college is way better than high school. In high school, you have to constantly worry about how you look, what clique you are in, trying to impress your crushes, are you popular enough, who you are taking to the dance, etc. Everyone knows everyone and there is a lot of gossiping and rumor spreading. If you do something embarrasing, everyone knows about it. Your schedules are predetermined and you are still treated like children.

    College gives you a lot more independence. You get to choose your classes, professors, and times. You get to meet so many different people. There are not really cliques in college - you just get to be yourself. You don't need permission to go to the bathroom. You aren't told when to go to your lockers, when to eat, and when to relax. You get to make the decisions.

    This is no contest. When you get to a univesity it is the first time in your life that YOU get to control your education. High school is not about teaching or learning, its purpose is to babysit. High school students are not adults, they are not mature, and most if not all of your high school friends will not still be your friends later in life. People you meet in college will be with you for the rest of your life, they will help you get jobs and set up networks to help you in your future career.

    Not to mention the atmosphere, your college years will be the most fun years of your life. Everyone in college is there by chioce, to try to advance their knowledge and succeed in the future.
