Good am myLotters! They say a lot that High School life is the best. It's the most memorable of all the times that you can spend during school days. But for me, College life is the one unforgettable rather than high school life. Because during college, that was the time that i can really go out with my friends and do a lot of stuff like out of towns because your parents trust you more, rather than when you were just in high school that they would just allow you to go to malls or something. Just a theory though. Maybe they say that high school life is best because that's the time when you are still carefree and starting to have the independency that you want. and, college is the starting point of your career path so there's a bit of pressure underneath. For you myLotters, which is the best experience for you? will be checking on your responses:)

I am not really through college as of now, but I can say that I still miss most of my high school days. It has been fun throughout those years. Although I do have fun while in college, there's something different with the enjoyment that high school life had given me. In college, there is more of the serious stuff, while in high school you're still somewhere between being a grown-up and being a kid. That's what I think now. :)

I agree, I loved my college days. It was not just going to college and being a grown-up, it was every thing else. No more uniforms [in most colleges], we could bunk if we want, we could go out with friends, and hang out in the library or the canteens. It was more fun because you had so many friends to enjoy that time with. I just finished MBA, and I still cannot believe that I will have no more college. Even the faculties were more friends than teachers, and we had all sort of projects [that we will run to submit at the last possible minute], and so many cultural and academic events where we would run around trying to participate in everything and enjoying things at the same time. When we had lectures cancelled, we would gather around in the canteen and eat while chatting and joking away. We would haggle with the canteen manager t give us a discount or just chat with him to pass our times. Hiding in the common rooms when the director was prowling the corridors, and then pretending we were studying there. All great fun. I miss college, especially my post-graduation college more.

College life is still the best. I'm still fourth year and i can say that college is the best experience that happened to my life. In highschool, i'm a consistent student in the A section, and competition is always there. I never got to make fun with my life there, because of the pressure that i have to stay on the list of top students. There is a little competition in college but still there is pressure that i have to prove my skills, i just have to stay away from the section where my co-top students are enrolled into, to avoid comparisons and great pressure. In college, i do have my long-time classmates but i can pick up my own schedule and that's the way that i have met so many friends. I love having new friends. I'm also part of the school organizations thus i collected also peers from other courses. I also have more than enough allowance and from these i get to have more fun with my peers through malling, playing stuffs and eating in restaus REGULARLY hahaha.. Also, in college, im exposed to the tech world and i'm a certified addict :D

Honestly, I hated both. High school was Hell for me. I got picked on horribly, I had to change schools from public to private because of an abusive ex boyfriend. Just bad all around. College was a little better but not great. All I ever saw or heard about was people being drunk and doing stupid things. Not so exciting to me. I would not choose either. I like my life now much better! =)I am happy to be away from all of those people and have my own world with my husband and kids.

I both miss college and high school though I miss much my college days. High School days is really memorable for me. I graduated with the highest honor, had a crush ng school campus and at the same time the SSC president as a boyfriend, been to many places joining seminars and contest. But I consider College days is the best. And the best thing that had ever happened to me is that I became a Youth LEader in a Spiritual Organization and got the chance to meet lot of youth with so much aspiration in life and at the same time with so much faith to God. Also, I had the best dates ever with my HS boyfriend when we reunited (though we did not ended together) and had the most romatic time with him ever. It was also during college days when I got the chance to experience a very long trip with my friends. College days is indeed the best days I really miss.

I have been graduated from college for several years.But i still miss my high schoollife and my college life.Both are the most memorable of my life and every period have its charactics and strong points.In high school,i put most of my time on my study,every morning i came to grove of our shool with a book in my hand ,reading loudly,and many birds were singing in the trees.The feeling was evry good.Tt's a long time i had no that feeling agin.I had no time to consider my future and other things.That time seems very dull and alternate between learning and sleep.Though very busy,i lead a full fruitful life.But college life is oppsite of high school life.When i was enroll in college ,i had a lot of free time .I taked part in many college actives and prepared for future employment opportunities. So high school and college life means a great deal to me,.

well thats a real hard one. I really enjoyed my high school days, because that is when i really started coming out of my shell. I was very shy at first until i started playing sports. So i was able to do more than usual. it was normal because i got to see the same people for 12yrs straight. but college on the other hand, thats when i had to grow up, because there was no one there to wake me up, iron my clothes, wash my clothes, and most importantly, tell me i needed to go to bed because i had to go to school. thats where the different lifestyles came from because there were people from all over. so i think my college life, was the best experience.

Hi maanplim, for me, i would think think high school is the best time of my life. At that period of time,i didn't have much worries as i am having now. I'm currently still in college. i think that althought the workload during high school is quite substantial, i think i enjoy myself more during that period of time. you are right in saying that when we enter college, it's the start of work life and we need to make sure we behave in a way that is acceptable by all. and all these causes pressure. where else when we were in high school, we could just be ourselves and enjoy ourselves. apart from school, we have so much free time and we can enjoy vacations too!

It's true that high school life is the best since you're really not pressured during those days compared to college (I'am still college student though). No matter how hard it is on college, even there are times that i want to be a high school where i can go easy i still prefer it because no matter how hard the situation gets, you're friends is always there experiencing it too and finishing those tasks with them leaves a smile on your faces.

I'd prefer College life. I like my High school days however it was all about teenage drama I think that is probably turn me off high school life the most. The constant drama of boys or girls, who just got their car license, who sits with the blonds, who sits with the Asians and all looking forward to prom night, goodness! College days (I'm doing it online) it is way better, I don't have to deal with other people, don't have to listen to someone else's crap! So yeah College life is way better!

Maybe people will say that i am an idiot for answering the question with C when the question is clearly asking for A & B. However i must still give the answer that its none of those two mentioned. Instead, i miss my primary school days ( in my country its called that when we are schooling at age of 6 to 12 ) more than college days. Somehow, my primary school days are filled with fun and laughter almost every single day and i met many different friends that are truely with my even till now. Thats also the time when i found many new interests.

High School life will be the best but I misses both of them.I misses the things that we do, hang out, strolling, laughing around friend, terror teachers, first times, exploring the world and lots of memories that we keep on remembering for the rest of our lives.

I appreciate college more for I can do a much wider activities compared when I was still in high school. Back in my high school days, I was a very prominent person for I am an honor student and participates greatly in competitions, contests, clubs and many more. High school was a heck of battlefield for me due to many responsibilities and pressure. As I entered college, I felt the longing to be a mere student who goes to class and just spend free time on the things that comes into my mind without worrying on my responsibilities. More allowance too for college. haha
