My son is 18 but just his junior year of High school, he mentioned the other day maybe going to get his GED for work purposes but then still finish out and get a diploma as well, I don't know if #1 that is allowed, and my concern is if he gets the GED he won't want to finish for the diploma. Do you know what the difference is between the two when potential employers or colleges look at your info?Answer Question

He can't do both...if he; gets his GED it's a diploma all he same and no the only diff. here in Fl. and I'm not sure if it;s still that way is I have to go to a community college first before I would have a chance at getting into a university....but I would do that anyways because it;s cheaper to get your AA that way then going to a university...as far as job a diploma is a diploma and most say did you graduate/earn your GED they don't really separate the 2. If he's not into school and as long as he gets his GED right away then I say encourage him to do so...I went the first week of my junior yr. and knew i was never going to pass so that's the route I took and I never regretted it at all and I'm 25.
