Gén0CýDéThat is not always true. Some seniors who were on my track team, coolest kids in the school, were total jackasses. Yet they made above 4.0 for their GPA's and got a few scholorships. Most of the people getting good jobs are usually involved in extra-curricular activities and sports. As much as nerds, geeks, or whatever stereotype you use hate to admit it, you have a much better chance at getting into a college when you do all these extra activities then when you go home and hang on a computer all the time.

I hate to break it to you, but there are other scholarships then athletic. Such as academic. With an athletic scholarship, the moment you can't play on the team, say bye bye to that scholarship. Also, high school is very different then the real world, or even college. The attitude that was what made you cool in high school is what gets the shit kicked out of you by other, bigger students. It's not always true that it happens. But the way you say it, is if you're not playing sports, you're not going to college or you'll never get a scholarship, and that's totally untrue. What else is funny, is if they're in on athletic scholarships, no doubt they're going to a jock school... one that gives special interest into sports. Most smart people go for the schools that challenge them, not ones that give them an easy A.

I am not trying to imply that at all. Academic scholorships is what I am talking about also. Many top academic kids around the USA are what people would consider to be "cool" or involved in sports, and extra activities. As I see it, most kids in high school usually lose that I am better then you attitude when they graduate. This is not always the case, but many kids manage to pull their heads out their asses. Just because you do not play sports doesn't mean you won't go to college. I agree with that. It is just that colleges like to look for students who did things in high school. If they know you will be an active member of the college, and can maintain good grades, they will want you. Or if you are just plain smart. My point is that even though jerky kids like to make fun of what they would consider "geeks", many of these kids do grow up to be very successful. However, you get the stoner fucks, and gangster type kids who go around making fun of "geeks", and these kids almost always grow up to be stoner fucks and gangsters who raise a new generation of stoner fucks and gangsters.

HAHAHA that sucks, why would a college chose you because you sport or are active in the school, overhere you can almost always get into a college and if some types of college are full they will just pick some students at random. *laughs at the american schoolsystem*

I'd rather not remember what Octovon's avatar was, along with most cartoons out of the 80's.
