Default Dropping out - 10-01-2012, 02:36 PM

Okay, as some of you may know im dropping out soon, may 21st will be my last year at school (9th grade), i'm getting certified through Cisco C.C.N.A(Certified Cisco Networking associate) i'll be making $25 an hour base pay , after i get my GED in june i will soon be starting work in my local area, What will i be doing? I Will be trafficking networks. Considering im 15 years old and making 85k a year salary, it's pretty decent, after i get a years experience under my belt ill try to get my C.C.N.P (Cisco Certified Networking Profession) Which base pay will be at 95k and making $35 an hour and eventually ill be writing my own checks if i can get up to a C.C.I.E Which i can tell them what i want to be paid and they'll do it.
so what should i do? this? or should i keep going through school then do it 7 years later?

Isn't it 16 to drop out with a parents consent? And 18 to drop out yourself. Have you told your parents this?

You'll be making around 44,000 a year for your first year and naturally rise to the max of 90,000. That all depends on your capabilities and training however.

Here's the page for the requirements.

Seriously though, you need a backup plan. What happens if it all doesn't work out?

This one is for the topics in the exam. Are you capable of learning all of this?

Just remember, you need to think about the disadvantages too. The job pays well, but dropping out isn't the solution to this. In my opinion, finish college then attempt to do career plan

Whats your plan if you get fired? Dropping out in 9th grade does not look good on a resume.

If you're going into technology I'd highly suggest at least finishing high school. I'm actually registered in Cisco as well, and I know that you're gonna have to take at least some college classes to actually get into the higher ranks. Yes, you can drop out now and still make a moderately good salary, but as Nater said, what happens if something goes wrong and you get fired? I'd at least finish High school. You may absolutely hate it while it's going on, but it's definitely worth it in the end.

my opinion is if you cant make it threw high school what makes you think you can make it threw the real world..my opinion is to stay in school work hard and do you best.. an if you say your doing you best obviously not.

Like i said above to ameer's reply, i have someone who is verry capable of helping me he has all his ccna notes, and helps me with hands on performance as well as the prompts/commands, that i need to know. Test king will give me all the information i need for the test, therefore if i know what to study then i should have no problem passing the test on the 1st or second try, i'm verry interested in routing internet traffic.

Are you doing this because it seems like your bro made a well career decision or is it what you really want and considered for a while?

I Have considered doing it for a while throughout my time through sg, i was going to pursue a career in Computer science but it would also take me alot longer and a more complicated shit that i don't need to know if i go the path i am going right now.
