comment GED instead of finishing school
What is your motivation for starting college early? Unless you've already exhausted your high school's offerings in (at least) math, computers, and English, it seems like doing that would be better (or at least cheaper) than taking essentially the same courses in college.

comment Professor Ignoring Emails RE disagreement over grading
The two questions do seem distinct to me -- the first seemed like a legitimate communication issue, while this one seems like the professor is deliberately not responding to avoid having to discuss this with the OP.

comment Is it a bad idea to get a PhD?
Welcome to Academia.SE. I suspect your question is too broad -- getting a PhD is a good idea for some and a bad idea for others. It will depend on your skills, country, interests, and field. The first chapter of Karen Kelsky's book gives an excellent overview of how dismal the tenure-track job market is. On the other hand, in some fields, there are research positions outside of the university. My advice is to have a realistic backup plan, particularly if you are not in STEM.
