High School vs. Georgetown


Everyone knows that high school and college are pretty different. From academics to the social scene, they are essentially worlds apart. 4E brings you a few situations that demonstrate this difference perfectly.

Situation 1: Getting an A

High School: *Shoves test in binder*



Situation 2: The “humble brag”

High School: “You’re on chapter 7?! I haven’t even opened the book.”


Georgetown: “You’re on chapter 7?! You better hurry up.  I memorized all the charts and statistics.”

Situation 3: Being Healthy

High School: “I try to eat a balance of fruits, vegetables, proteins, and carbs.”

Georgetown: “I try to eat healthy. Also, I went to Yates last week.”


Situation 4: Needing to do laundry

High School: “Maahhhm!”


Georgetown: “Maybe if I spray it with perfume no one will know…”

Situation 5: Relationships

High School: “After our date he asked if we should make it Facebook official.”

Georgetown: *Swipes you in at Leo’s* “It was essentially a date.”


Situation 6: Trying really hard to cook

High School: *Prepares five course meal.*


Georgetown: *Fails at preparing five course meal.*


*And then resorts to EasyMac*


Situation 7: Being a nerd

High School: “You did the reading? Classic. Such a nerd.”

Georgetown: “That kid always ruins the curve. I heard he co-authored the textbook. What a nerd.”


Situation 8: Netflix and chilling

High School: *text at 6:30 p.m.* “Hey. I have to watch my sister tonight while my parents are gone but want to come over to watch some Netflix and chill?”

Georgetown: *text at 3:30 a.m.* “Netflix and chill;)?”


Situation 9: Waking up early

High School: “I got up at 5 a.m. for swim practice. I’m literally going to die.”

Georgetown: “I have an 8 a.m. class this semester. I’m literally going to die.”


Situation 10: Realistic career expectations

High School: “I’m incredibly passionate about biology, space, and astrophysics. I’m either going to be a physicist or an astronaut. I got a 5 in AP Physics so I’m probably smart enough.”


Georgetown: “I mean, tax law could be interesting.”

Situation 11: Personal Space

High School:


Georgetown: “This should do for now.”


Situation 12: Approaching a crush

High school:


Georgetown: “My crush has got to be on tinder somewhere. It’s only a matter of time.”


Situation 13: Dance parties

High school: “There’s always that one couple…”


Georgetown: “There’s always that one kid..” *Brings entire freshman floor*


College is hard. But, you’ve got to admit, most times it’s better than high school.
