That's weird, I would have said college was more about fun times than school.
College comes with consequences. You are a legal adult so if you do anything too crazy it really is on your permanent record. There's jail consequences and stuff. I'm not talking about murder or rape, I know those come with consequences no matter the age. In high school you can get away with almost anything. I know I did. By the time college rolled around I had to do things like show up for classes and get decent grades. College is certainly more important to obtaining a career than high school. I think it's a better idea to drink, do drugs, party, and have stupid relationships in high school when it doesn't matter at all. You think you need good grades to get into a decent college? I graduated with a 1.67 GPA from high school, was fresh out of rehab and had no extra curricular activities under my belt if you didn't count following around the Dead and some volunteer shit I did. I got into some of the best colleges in Maryland anyway. Through experience I have determined that high school has almost no bearing on life. As far as I could tell the only reason to maintain good grades was if you wanted to play sports in school.
