Okay, so that let's you know that I'm not lazy and I earned mines. Affirmative action had nothing to do with what I achieved. Considering that I was a Dean's scholar and Presidential scholar a few semesters and I found it weird that I actually did my best when I had the Overload and was taking 21 hours in a single semester.
And I have considered serving my country, because my dad was in the Air Force. But he always told me that it would be best to get a degree first so that I could start out as an officer. He's dead now, so I don't really wanna talk about him.
Your dad is right.

Yes, his advice was correct. Not only will you start out ahead of the game ,you will get a good dose of the real world and mellow out a bit. Good luck!
