I am at the career crossroads and I have to get this behind me, I am weighing a GED vs dumping $1000 on a real HSD and getting it behind me. Obviously I want the real HSD. I'm just wondering about it. I think Allied is going to be my top choice. Can anyone give me the deal on this? I want to transfer out the credits to a local adult school and just take the California exit exam so I have a more 'legit' sounding diploma, than something online. Even if that's not an option, a GED just sounds really mediocre to me. Although the time involved with getting a real HSD vs the GED might be a factor. I'm prepared to just dump a chunk on the right DETC program and get a full on HSD.
