I had to drop out of high school due to depression and other personal issues. I just finished high school and want to travel to Europe so that I can better understand the world. And it'll be a good time away from all the negativity and issues I had. Any problems I'll have? (My parents are going to sponsor)

  • I don't want to book the tickets and not get the visa. That's the part I'm scared off – sentido Feb 24 '18 at 18:54

    What is your citizenship country? – alamar Feb 24 '18 at 18:56
  • Please make it more obvious if you dropped out of school or finished it. – InaccurateWeatherReport Feb 24 '18 at 20:14
  • @asfarnorthaspossible I take it from the title that they finished high school – user16259 Feb 24 '18 at 20:18

If I assume that you just finished high school, you are currently not student in any educational institution. Your situation is very open to be understood as over-stay or illegal immigration. I am afraid that your application will be possible subject to fail. But if you were a college student, I would say that you can easily get the visa by providing necessary documentaries.

If I assume that you dropped out of the high school, your situation is even worse.

Even if the situations are like this, if I had no monetary problems, I would apply for visa.

    I assume that the OP is an USA citizen, will have a return ticket when setting out and stands a good chance on getting a stamp in his passport on arrival in most European countries, including Schengen and the UK, so does not need to apply for a visa. – Willeke Feb 24 '18 at 21:14

    @Willeke why do you assume a US citizen? It seems unlikely to me that a US citizen would know what Schengen visas are without also knowing that US citizens don't need them. – phoog Feb 25 '18 at 13:33
  • High school, use of English and general information out of the question, but it is a guess. (US=USA) – Willeke Feb 25 '18 at 14:09
