Well, I am in the process now to get my GED/ high school diploma. Which is better? You have websites out there that you can take online classes to get you high school diploma, and they say it's better than a GED, and you are better off with the diploma ( It looks better when looking for colleges or a job). Which one do I go for?

This depends upon several factors. If you are looking to go from high school to a job, then get a diploma. If you are looking to go from high school to a college, then it depends upon the college. If the college is one that admits all applicants, such as a community college, then it makes little difference, as they will generally accept either one as sufficient. If, however, you have to meet the college's standards, the diploma is generally better, as they tend to rate a diploma as more valuable than a GED.
