    Has anyone ever REALLY messed up in college and is now successful?

    don't bring any of this college is useless bullcrap into this conversation. i wanna know if any of you guys went from being on academic probation to completely killing it the next few years and graduated with your degree. i don't wanna get into detail but let's just say i'm not exactly in an ideal situation right now and i need motivation to get me through this.

    I was deep in a meth addiction my first semester but quit during the break basically.



    Had to kind of dump most of my friends and re-evaluate my priorities though.

    Now I'm back and last semester had all A's and B's while not working nearly as hard as I should be. I know if I actually applied myself and studied everyday(which shouldn't even be difficult), I could get A's and A+'s.

    depends what you define as successful, OP. I went to college so it would give me a way to pursue my passions and make a difference. For others it's to get a job that makes money. Success is meeting your goals. What are your goals in life, OP? Once you answer that question then you can go about achieving them.

    My story:
    Did horrible in hs
    Bullchitted in community college for one year, hardly passing any classes
    Got into some trouble (underage drinking related) parents kicked me out, no school, full time job, apartment.
    Partying continues.
    Realize that my life is turning to **** and that im going no where.
    Moved out of state to attend university
    First semester had 3.4 gpa, have part time job and have made great friends. Doing well this semester and feel great.

    Its possible to turn it around and get good grades if you find the motivation. Just realize that it is worth it, a college degree is NOT useless, it is becoming the norm to have a BA or BS.
    Not meant to demean those without college degrees I know they arent necessary for success but they help, everyone says "experience is more important" this is why motivated college students strive to get an internship during summers. A degree isnt a magical ticket into a job...

    lol..i didnt study sh!t in college and flunked couple of exams....university chancellor wasnt even gonna let me continue into final year.

    spent entire college life in the whole clubbing thing, slooting around on a shoestring budget.

    during the last semester, worked my ass off i had a conditional internship offer in Norway due to some connections..... for 2 months, i did nothing but holed up in my room, on redbull, ritalin, ciggies and worked on 10,000 word thesis,
    studied for 8 exams instead of usual 3 like most students and managed to clear and get my bachelors degree.

    did 3 month internship, got good recommendation, got a job in a media firm after 2 months.
    now i am working as a marketing manager.
    wasn't easy and i am still not in the industry of my choice....but the work experience is decent enough to work towards doing masters in good college


    if u r studying in a very specific program such as law or medicine..then u r screwed.

    but if u r a business major, you do get some flexibility in the job market as u can fit into any industry.

    I barely passed hs, as a result I couldn't get into the university I wanted so I went to a community college instead for my first year. I studied hard and eventually transferred to a university after my first year. In third year right now and I've been maintaining a 80% avg so far.

    Beating yourself up and giving up will get you no where. You just have to focus and work towards your specific goals and ignore any negative thoughts. The road to success is never smooth brah

    Dropped out of high school. Got my GED. Kept having to drop community college classes because I wasn't applying myself.

    Started taking it seriously and I graduate this year with a 3.9 GPA, the credit hours for the CPA exam and a spot in a 3 year leadership program with a Fortune 500 company.

    Why I changed? I simply started telling myself that if single parents working two jobs could finish school then I had no excuse if I failed.

    Good luck OP!
