So I was talking with a fellow classmate on the phone just a moment ago, she called to ask about the homework due next class and then it turned into a decent converstation. After a while I found out she's trying to get into medical school as well, which I thought was pretty cool! The thing is though, she says she doesn't have a high school diploma since she messed up when she was younger and was wondering if it'd screw her up. I told her to start working for her GED but I wasn't 100% sure if it really made that big of a difference (I'd imagine so), so that's why I'm here. Does not having a high school diploma a major disadvantage?
