I hate the word drop out when it's applied to college. I wasn't homeschooled I went to a private school and I choose to leave college. It wasn't what I wanted and Mark and I were ready to get married. I knew I was going to be a stay at home wife/mom so college just seemed like a waste of money to me when I could pursue my own interests.

Okay anyways, I'm not sure if your father is getting the right information. I know he means well! Grandparents always do right? (I got the same good intentioned worries from my mom about wanting to do a homebirth! Complete with faulty studies about it being dangerous!) I'm just saying that since my husband was a homeschooler (he didn't go to college but he did go to trade school) and he grew up with a lot of homeschooled friends, many of whom went to college and flourished. One even went to West Point.

Colleges view leaving without transferring as dropping out of college. The first day of the nursing program we were informed that 1 in 3 of us would drop out. At freshman orientation when my sister started college they said look to either side of you and that one in three would drop out before completing college and don't let it be you.

Heather, can you say they were trying to sell their "wares" so to speak? Good GOSH!

Hey people, look to the person next to you....be better than them and stay here until your done. Even if that isn't in your best interest at the time! Crazy people!
