I've basically decided to forego a GED and instead take the CLEP exams instead. According to at least one comment in my old post, if I do a years worth of college-level work at my local CC they will actually grant me the equivalent to a high school diploma, which would allow me to kill two birds with one stone; getting my HS diploma while also grinding away at college-level work.
