How many of you went to college? Are you happy you did it? Did you drop out? Do you wish you had stayed in?

You can look at statistics charts all you want but I want to know from real people these things. I fully plan on going to college, because I plan to pursue a career in being a pharmacist. I was just wondering your story. I guess just to get the polls interesting.

I went and graduated. I almost dropped out because I didn't know what I wanted to do. Instead, I got a generic degree in History which has helped me. If I had not had it, I wouldn't have been able to get all of the good jobs I have had even though my degree was not in the same field. You should definitely go especially since you have a clear profession in mind that is and will be in demand.

I went, I loved it, I dropped out having a kid, wish I would have finished and thinking about going back starting over especially having a much better idea of what I'm looking to do in life now

I went and dropped out, then became a certified Medical Assistant. I will be going back in August to study Nursing, hopefully if I didn't wait too late to register. I do wish I had stayed the first time around
