What's your opinion on my friend's decision?

What's your opinion on my friend's decision? Topic: University case statement
May 25, 2019 / By Di
Question: Ok, so he just graduated from high school last year and started college in a four-year university with a FULL scholarship. He's made it through his whole first year of college, and I've spoken to him occasionally and he claims he 'loves' college. And right now, right before his summer vacation starts, he's saying that he's planning to drop out of college and become a fast food worker. WHAT?! That was my first response to that statement. I mean, he has a full-paid scholarship for his entire four years at college, something MANY students in my high school would KILL to be blessed with such a gift, yet he's deciding to waste all of that money to get a job he could've worked for right after he obtained his high school diploma and not have gone to college or apply for scholarships at all. In my opinion, that's a very foolish and wasteful idea. What do you think about it?

I think he is pulling your leg, but just in case he is not, he will be horribly sorry. I worked fast food when I was going to college, just to have a little extra spending cash. I have even done it latter to make some extra, as a manager and it wasn't any better. I will say when I went to college, I had a full scholarship, went in to be an architect, after three years, I hatted it, and thought engineering was my cup of tea, wrong again and returned for psychology. After that I had enough education I could be anything almost. I think your friend is just having a rough go, so maybe you should talk to him or someone should. If its about having money and a job now, he will be sorry. Of course there is a slight possibility he is not cut out for college, it can be harsh. I started when I was 15 in the honors program and that was weird, everyone so much older, but I made it, so talk to him. Just tell him opportunity knocks only once, and second chances are seldom, so make the right choice.

Candyce Originally Answered: Hard decision- Navy Seals or Marine Corps- Tough spot- your opinion?
Well, you have the personality type according to what you've said to become a SEAL. I'd suggest a four things along that line of thought: 1) It is easier to become a pro-NFL player than it is to become a SEAL, by about an order of magnitude. 2) We always hear how tough the training is for the SEALs. More than one SEAL has said though that once you complete BUDS and SQT, the hard work starts. Up until then, if you failed, it was really only you that suffered. In the teams, that isn't true anymore. 3) There is a truism in special operations in general. "The longer you do this job, the less qualified you are to do it." You will get hurt. The question is only how often and how badly and how long will it be until that puts you out of the game all together? 4) It is tough to be married in the military at all, it is worse as a SEAL. You could go to work in the morning and come home weeks later, not able to say a thing about where you were. There is nothing wrong with the Marine Corps. It is a service steeped in tradition and honor. It is a good choice, and one that nobody could fault you for. But if you think you have what it takes to be a SEAL, if you are willing to do the job and pay the price, if you know - not think - you will make the cut with the quiet confidence you've described, if you are someone others can rely on no matter what is at stake and what the pressure is, if you can be calm and professional no matter what is going on around you will never be satisfied with not knowing if you could have earned that trident. @Lana -- hope you're right about peace.

Go for navy, try for seals if you fail you are still in the navy, Marines taxi service and world police, 2nd strongest discipline wise in the military, but like people said, even if you do everything perfect, there is less than 10% chance of actually becoming a SEAL, I prefer title Marine personally.

Why does everybody need to be "special?" Being a Marine is not special enough for you. No, You need to be special forces. What the hell for? So fleet marines have no pride or rewarding missions? Ten years of war are cooming to a end. You missed the show. Now come the 20 years of peace & downsizing.

It sounds completely idiotic. Who wants to live on a fast food salary. Anyway, if that fried decides to go on with that decision, I am pretty sure that soon they will realize that working all day at a fast food, or anywhere else, is not better than going to college.

Amelie Originally Answered: Problem with my best friend. What's your opinion?
your best friend is really jealous and afraid she might loose you because of you going out with another people and she feels that you might go close to them and forget all about her because she really cares a lot for you I had the same problem with my best friend and her mother was a very strict woman she hated her even to go to exams alone,she was really silly Until my best friend was really crying from that,I called her mother tried to convince her but it didn't work out, So I grabbed my mother once when I was going to visit her at home to try to make her convinced that she would go out with us(and my mum would be with us if her mother was worried about her) After many and many tries accepted that, At least I could see now my best friend at a club or sth. You should try something like that with her, And you must make her understand that she's your best friend and she mustn't be jealous because she is special to you Good luck ;)

Just tell her to stop listening to her dad and go out, she's gonna have to when she's older. If she doesn't let you out with your other friends then she's not a good friend her self so unless she wants to spend time with you she'll come out with other people if not then just ditch her.
