returnDiploma or certificate?

hey, I was wondering how many of you guys are going for diploma or certificate? I know diploma requires an annoying amount of commitment; I have one so I share the sentiment. Do you guys think diploma or certification is more worth it?

I personally don't see how a diploma will benefit too much. The certificates though are good, just like AP for college credit. Just have to makes sure your college accepts them.

The diploma mainly helps for people who want to go to Abroad.

Diplomas take too much time.

@miniwhopee Yea I personally don't find the diploma worth the time and effort unless you want to go abroad. If you're just going to a us school, APs are fine .
