I didn't seriously go to college until after I did a hitch in the U.S. Army. The first time I went I was right out of high school and WAAYY too unmotivated for it. I spent all my time at the beach instead of going to class. Living in Daytona Beach can be a bad thing when you are young & dumb.

When I flunked out my old man broke my plate, bent my fork and kicked me out and told me the best thing I could do was to go down and see the man about joining the service.

The next time I went it was on my dime and by then I had pulled my head out of my *** enough to take it seriously. Also by then I had enough game that bagging babes was like shooting fish in a barrel.

Gonna agree with old man winter: When you are older (and it is on your dime) you will take it much more seriously. Hard to justify failing a semester (wasting a ton of $$$) when it is coming out of your pocket.

Go back and do it. More education will never hurt you, unless you get some worthless liberal arts major.

Yeah, Don't bother with college unless you have a serious degree/career you want to pursue. Some people claim any degree is better than none but that isn't proving true so much anymore. What you know, past work experience/past wages can play a much a bigger role. Also, the Lollipop guild doesn't require a degree so I don't know why you are bothering.

My sister went to college right away, got 2 degrees by the time she was 22.. did nothing with them, didn't help her at all, then she went back at 32 to become a doctor. she should be done in 2.5 years. Her husband paid for the school though... so no debts out of medical school will be nice for them.

Agree, later is better. I am almost 30 and in college for my second run. The first time I went I did not finish because I was young and using the parents money. Now I pay for it and I take it way more serious (only serious enough to obtain a decent GPA). I am going for a degree in skill trades at the moment and then will transfer into a Bachelors program afterwards.

Yup, I got got my Associates at 19, but my GPA was only a 3.0, went back at 26, now I take it way more seriously, don't really waste time hollering at girls though, too focused on my grades, rocking a 3.8 at the moment and that's because at the beginning I was a bit rusty, been rocking all A's lately.


Even though I don't try to talk to girls, they are easy as hell to holler at, never have any problem striking up a conversation.

If I was starting over again, I'd learn how to weld real well and get on the next thing smoking to North Dakota or Texas.

I graduated with a 2.7 GPA after 6 years of college for a 4 year degree.

I probably would've done better if I went later in life, but this worked out alright I guess.

Never too late to go back Luke-o.
Finished college on my first stint with a 3.2 GPA while I was working full time. Considering going back for a Masters here in a bit. My GPA went up a LOT when I started working, then it kind of kicked in..."I'm paying for this crap!!"

Let me guess....Pharmaceuticals?

Using a car to holler at females is infantile, I use my words.

I went back later. Frat boy in undergrad and only had a 2.7.....got into Grad school on probation since I smoked the GRE and had a 3.85 and was Alph Eta honors. Went back when I was mid 30s for Chem 1/2 Organic 1/2 Physics 1/2 Biochem and a few other goodies with a 4.0 since I actually went to class. An interview with Med school didn't work and a divorce hit so I gave up on Med school. Bottom line..........it's never too late and you are usually way more focused with a bit of life experience.

So I guess what the word really is... between 18 and 25, Just work while partying your *** off. Once that is out the system then try college, the motivation will be there.

Also, pull out until you are ready.

This is terrible advice. Anyone who gives that advice should go way back to high school and take a math class so they can learn about the power of compounding interest, followed by a basic biology class. Get college over with as early as possible so you can earn as much money as possible so you can retire as early as possible with as much loot as possible. Those thousands of dollars that you would lose out on for those few years turns into an absolute sh*tload by the time you are retirement age. They are also forgetting that nobody gives a rat's *** about grades after you've been hired for your first job. And wear a condom, pulling out is not birth control, it's art.


the power of compound interest the most powerful force in the universe.

this means... Live a dull life, Never do anything fun and save all your money. Then when you are free to spend it all you DIE! Leaving all the chips you earned to someone who does not deserve it. Also, go to school early so you rack up thousands upon thousands in debt, so you spend a majority of that dull life paying off an education that you earned to earn you money that you will not get to play with before you die.

f**K that, buy a stripper or two and get some real life experience. Then save up some money and pay for majority of college out of pocket so the debt you accrue is no gonna kill you in the long run.

Dude if you can't pay off loans in like 5 years you're doing it wrong. I graduated with 50k and while huge, it isn't a dramatic eternal lifetime debt like you're making it out to be.

Just turned 23 in june and seriously considering going to school this fall. Sick as hell of working a "job" just want an actual career so i can get of my parents house and just be out on my own. I don't need to be a millionaire i just want to make enough to have a home and be able to do my car/gun hobbies
