mirs_birs 0 Posted April 21, 2022 Report Share Posted April 21, 2022 Okay, so. I got accepted to the IB this year and am going to start high school this fall. However, and don’t make fun of me for this, despite being like 14 I have a boyfriend, and hobbies, and friends. None of which have anything to do with the program. Thing is, I don’t want to sacrifice my teenage years for a good score on the IB test, or give everything up for a chance at MIT. I want to be happy outside of school, and knowing myself, my time management skills, and my pending adhd test result, i might end up absolutely drowning in schoolwork and losing the social life, or doing animation and talking to my friends and then consequently flunking out of school. It’s scaring me, actually. When I applied to the school I’m going to attend, just sending it in the mail was an accomplishment to me. I never expected to get accepted and now I’m freaking out a little. Especially since my research on the IB program has looks to me that almost everyone regrets it by the time they graduate college. Seeing so many people regretting it and complaining is making me doubt if this would be worth the sacrifice. If anyone has any advice, please tell me! Anything helps!
