    It really sux that u didnt make it into whatever university u wanted to, because i personally know how it feels. Im almoust 20 years old now, just finished high school and had same problem as many KO players. I barely finished HS, basicaly like 4 professors gave me passing marks and its all cause of KO. I basicaly stoped giving shit bout education some 3 years ago, and ever since i had this attude that school is a place where ure ought to spend some time every day and its just a way it works. What really used to kill mood for me was not the stuff that we used to learn in school, but the sheer time that u get to spend every day there > 7 X 45 mins + time between classes every day 5 days per week...

    So after i finally finished high school i couldnt basicaly get into any state university and i felt really bad about it, it was like a shock. But then i googled a bit and found myself a private unversity 5 mins from where i live, like 2K euros a year and u get a certificate of Paris Sorbonne university. Right now im having the best time of my life, university is like a joke compaired to high school, i spend in one week same time there as i used to spend in just one day back in school. God bless my third world country's education system!

    Anyways im sure ure gonna find something that will work out for ya, good luck.

    Played KO while in HS.
    I thank KO because of that, it shaped my life aswell as establishin very good contacts worldwide.
    I dont regret it, i met amazing people in Ares in NN, Polish, Germans all of it. They helped shape who i've become.
    I learn nothing in school, total waste of my time. Its what you do outside that counts. I have a 4-figure a day income.[/b]

    Lutz, go into the Marines. Its what im doing =) I have a D in nearly every class except 1 which I have an A in, and I still get to go! You don't even have to go into the infantry do computer shit there. I'm going into recon sniping but none the less its a 24 grand a year paycheck after 5 months. And everything on-base is tax free!

    $20.50 per day in mcdonalds? nothing to shout about.

    I quit KO when i felt the time was right, not when i was forced into it for some RL reason. If you let the game control you then, as eric said, it is your fault. Personally, I think you have to be a total moron or a masochist to continue playing KO nowadays.

    Actually it's not. People in the Military make decent money. Especially when they first start. They live on Base, so free housing, the Military pays for utilities, so no bills, the Chow Hall is cheap, so food isn't a problem. Basically, you pocket a LOT of the money you're making, so if you're smart, it's no problem to have a decent car, etc. Also, everything on Base is tax-free, so thats another plus.

    Having said that, I wouldn't be going into the Military anytime soon. I actually plan on becoming a doctor, neurologist specifically.

    Anyway, back on topic; Sorry for the rejection Lutz. I do however, know how you feel, as KO did the same thing my Freshman year. Luckily for me though I suppose, I realized it early on and simply quit KO. Also, for people who are saying that Lutz is simply blaming KO for his not getting into Stanford, honestly I think that's crap. It seems like to me that he is, rather than blaming, warning people here. He's seen first-hand what can happen if you let a game run your life and let's be honest, Lutz is probably one of the hardest workers that anyone who knows him has met. Imagine if this was just a regular kid, but instead of Stanford, he'd be rejected to everything he applied for. Think of this as one of the "Horrors of the Online Video Game".

    My 2 cents.

    So you fuck up your education because you have no self control? Welcome to the real world. It just happens to be specific that your poison was a video game, others suffer from issues that affects their life and education just like you, but dont sit here and preach about fucking poor me and take the fun away for everyone else.

    Other people can balance KO and work and study and family and many other things. Maybe you&#39;re just a born loser destined for failure, and you need something to blame it on?
