Was it worth it?
It was a completely different world for me. I came from a very strict Mormon background. I made some great friends and we ended up doing some amazing things together. Trips, concerts, parties, hiking, biking, camping, etc., etc. I performed in outdoor theater for years. Met some great people. Had some wild times. Oh yeah, I learned shit too.

people say its the best years of your life because you dont work, you use the dorm to live, you pass tests and do stupid shit. people get pissed after that because they have to pay for how they lived and they love to bitch about o dont want to work. it makes them feel old after they get out because they dont think there is anything to look forward to. this 0lace is so fucking slow i cant wait to hit UNI this waiting for 2 weeks is really fucked up. im behind everywhere one on the east coast.
I will come back and quote myself from the other 3 'College... is it worth it'-type threads but for now I will tell you it is shitty.
It depends on where you go, what for, your timetable and the grading criteria/ how they go about teaching a certain subject, but I had to drop out after the firs tor second semester last time around. I wasn't getting any sleep, working until 11-midnight every day, my partners were generally unenthusiastic, my tutors gave no feedback and so much of what I was doing in class was either pretentious bullshit or the other end of the spectrum- extremely basic. If I could have stayed at my old high school where I got my diploma in design, I would have. I learned more there then on a course that was supposed to be extremely technologically and artistically based. Too many people going just to stay out of work.
I never went to one party or drank the entire time I was there. No time to. Not even in fresher's week.
Now I'm going back as I got into 2 different universities so I'll give it one last shot for my parents...
college is what you make it... if i could relate to to you how different I am, how awesome it is to be in college, i would. Its not just a free pass to do whatever, its like the choice to choose what you learn, find what you excel at, its like feeding my brain candy... I know so much more after one year, like factually, and it has opened my eyes to more than just what you are taught in public school. College is where you get to think for yourself

I'd rather go back to my old school for 3 years and do anOther vocational course. You are right it is not a free pass though.
well maybe it because of the program you chose?
im just saying, ive seen that happen with alot of medical assistant, coding, etc. students... they dont learn really anything, except for highly specialized nonsense.

it does hamper when your employer keeps delaying your training
