    I regret going
    I do not regret going
    I regret it somewhat
    I haven't been, but I am planning on it
    I haven't been, and I am not planning on it


    I've given this a lot of thought. I've done a video and have a blog on it. The bottom line for me now is unless I was being a doctor and professional I wouldn't go. Check it out. I finally pay off my student loan next month. Woop! It's taken 10 years nearly...it got me thinking though even though I only took out £9k, paid back £10 with interest would I even bother going these days if I was 18 years old again given that the £9k could actually be as much as £50k. What if I had invested that £10k instead?
