    Smile String + Scanner!

    Okay, im using netbeans as my compiler. And don't judge me for my text. Im new and im just texting stuff. I can't get my Scanner to work with a String. last thing on the code, i got a School variable that i want to set to Good or Bad. And i want to use the (true/false if statement) But i keep getting errors. So, if anyone could just have a quick look at it, it would really help me
    Thx!

    package tester;
    import java.util.Scanner;
    public class Tester {
     
     
    public static void main(String args[]) {
        int age, sex;
        String School = "Good";
        Scanner scan = new Scanner(System.in);
     
     
                System.out.println("What's your sex?");
                System.out.println("[1] Male [2] Female");
                sex = scan.nextInt();
                System.out.println(sex == 1 ? "A guy huh." : "A woman huh.");
                System.out.println("What's your age?");
                age = scan.nextInt();
                System.out.println(age >= 23 ? "No school? Nice!" : "Still in school... That's boring");
                if (age <= 22){
                System.out.println("How is your school? Good or bad?");
                School = scan.nextString;
                System.out.println(School == Good ? "How nice" : "Aww, that's sad");
     
     
     
     
     
                }
     
     
        }
    }

    all errors!


    School = scan.nextString;
    symbol: variable nextString
    location: variable scan of type Scanner

    System.out.println(School == Good ? "How nice" : "Aww, that's sad");
    symbol: variable Good
    location: class Tester
    2 errors
    The following error occurred while executing this line:
    Compile failed; see the compiler error output for details.
    BUILD FAILED (total time: 0 seconds)

    --- Update ---

    If you don't know how to fix it, can you do it on another way? With the true and false statement? :/

    Where is the error message? What you've posted has left off the text of the error message.
    That's in the first line of the message.
    Here is a sample:
    TestSorts.java:138: cannot find symbol
    symbol  : variable var
    location: class TestSorts
             var = 2;
             ^
    Here "cannot find symbol" is the error.
    If you don't understand my answer, don't ignore it, ask a question.

    Cannot find symbol
    symbol: variable nextString
    The compiler can not find a definition for nextString. You need to define ALL variables that are used in the program.
    Cannot find symbol
    Symbol: variable Good
    Same problem. Where is the variable: Good defined?
