  • I agree with the PP. A diploma does look so much better, whether you're applying for a job or anything else, than a GED.

    Back in 2007 I used Penn Foster Career School to gain my diploma. The tuition was $900, but it was well worth getting that piece of paper saying I graduated high school.

  • Go for the diploma it always looks better and that is coming from someone with their GED. However GED is ok if you are going straight to college. Then they see that is what you "planned" on.

  • Diploma, Diploma, Diploma. When searching for a job - they will interview a Diploma holder over a GED holder every time.

  • A GED is fine. I earned my GED and never had a problem getting into school or getting a job. I'll be starting my Master's program later this year...you can achieve whatever you put your mind to!
