Here's a thread for discussion for Class of '08, since we are all getting ready to graduate.

And I also have a question; Do you guys think it's sad to miss your prom? I'm not going to mine. Finding a date would be hard for me, but not impossible. The main reason that I'm not going, though, is because I cannot pay for it with my job alone, because I just got my job recently, and my parents aren't doing good with money. I haven't asked them, but I know that they won't be able to pay for prom, and if they could, it would just be for a very small portion, and probably not even a third of the expenses.

I've also never really seen prom as a huge deal like a lot of people do. It's not something I've given much thought to.

Well they might understand, being your last year of highschool and it being prom and all.

It's not bad to miss prom... a lot of my friend's aren't going. It's important to me to go, I dunno... it feels kind of like a traditional thing to me. Logically I know it doesn't make sense to feel that way.
I've decided that my signature is terrible. I'm open to suggestions.


Click me, or I'll die.

That's sad to hear man. I know how you feel, but I am lucky that my parents can afford to pay for mine. If you work really hard and such, you should go. Borrow a suit from someone in your family maybe? I think it's going to be really fun if you go, mainly because it's going to be the last time you're going to see alot of people.

Why don't you just show&skip?

if you don't go to prom, you'll never lose it...

I'm not going to prom. I asked a cutiepie if she wanted to go, but she said no . I couldn't pull the, "It's just a dance" thing because she knew I liked her in the first place. Where are you guys going to school, and what for? I'm going to The Ohio State University and plan on majoring in Geography with a minor in Anthropology (or possibly double major. I'm not sure as to what I can handle).

My friends are yelling at me about the prom thing. I didn't go to any other dances, why should I start now? idunno either.

I have to pay for 100% of my schooling (except what I get from gov't/grants/scholarships)

I might go if I can find a date( Im working on it), but even if I dont go I'll still have grad bash which seems more fun and laid back.
#16
Woo. Class of '08.

I don't think it's a big deal that you're missing prom. I'd guess around a third of the people in my class won't go. And with my school, there isn't much to miss.

How many people are graduating from your school this year?

about 100 if the whole class graduates, which I doubt
I'll settle on 95 +/- 10

Madcap, man, if you actually want to go to your prom...I'm sure you could have friends help you out, or get an advance, or pay your parents back, or get a discount from the school. There are always ways to get around these kinds of things. Remember, too, that you don't need a date.

Of course, that's only if you'd be upset if you missed it. I, for one, don't care either way. Haven't decided if I'm going to mine yet.

I think I'd be more upset by people at school or in the future feeling bad for me about not going, rather than missing the festivities.

I understand exactly what you mean. I am just getting a job now too, so I'm short on money and really don't wanna fork out my savings to go to prom, I would much rather some guitar equipment and stuff

But the problem for me is that theres this girl I kinda like and if we start dating any time soon, I'll bet she'll want to go to prom. So im in a tad bit of a dilemma. But I'll figure it out eventually.

As for your situation, I don't know how it is at your school, but at our school post prom is really big. Its less formal and you don't necessarily have to go out to some fancy exensive dinner and rent a tux and whatnot. So u might want to skip prom and just go to postprom if your school has a similar thing.

I think we have a class size of 538, I'd assume most of them will graduate, but I dunno.

Anyone get ranked?

It's quite the sham, considering marks can't differentiate as to whether the course is actually challenge or whether you can make high 90s/A+s without studying... But I digress.

14th, cool.

Doing engineering next year. Should be a rush.
#24
Just borrow a suit from a family friend, and go. If you feel bad enough about it that you are making a thread, you obviously want to. Don't waste money on flowers or anything. I'm sure if you explain the situation to your (potential) date, she will understand and be totally cool with it.


Oh and to reply to the above poster, I'm ranked #3.

I'm not sure if i'm going to my prom
I'd kinda only be going because I feel I should

for one, I know i could probably get a date, but I'm considering going just with a group of friends and partying afterwards
If you take a date you are at least guaranteed company the whole night as opposed to taking nobody...

either way though, I'd just want to take a good friend of mine as a date
Oh f*ck it,
I'm gonna have a party.

To PopNFlesh; Im 18th, but I dont care, I didnt know about ranking until a few months ago. A funny thing in my class is that the top 3 are seperated by .001.

I don't care about ranking either. "#1" is an arrogant ass who thinks he's smarter than everybody, yet he barely understands the physics and calculus we are doing. The top 10 in my school all cheat off of each other, only one or two of them deserve some sort of recognition.

It's also dumb that you can take a bunch of easy classes in summer school, like gym classes, and because you have more credits, you get ranked higher, when someone who probably worked harder is deserves it

I don't really mind. I'd rather earn a grade instead of borrow one.

I'm not going to my prom either. It's in a month, and there are 4 concerts in may that I would much rather to go to. Plus the chances of me getting some are very slim. Also, I'm saving what ever money I have for a new amp. But I'm pretty glad I'm graduating with a 3.8 gpa ^_^

Big Willy, I assume you mean the University of Kansas. Which is cool. I was going to go there but found out that I'd enjoy a liberal art education much more. Are you from Kansas, and if so, where? Me though, I'm going to prom with my girlfriend. I wouldn't mind missing it though, not too important to me. Also, my class has 25 kids in it, being the largest class in the school by 10.

I'm technically class of 08, but I graduated early. Am I still cool? =/
