    £2 million isn't really enough to keep you going for 60 years, considering inflation and that.

    Though if it was the Euromillions (as in a £100 million jackpot), I may reconsider.

    I probably would but then im thinking about dropping out/changing course anyway so having a load of money to go travelling again would make that decision easier

    Hell no. I'd stay and buy all the books I need, new designer clothes, new phone, laptop, all the food I can eat and go mad with the spending.

    tbh I would only be really happy if I won one of the multiple rollover jackpots like the ones that reach £90million+

    But even then I would probably finish my degree programme.

    I'd stay! Uni is meant to be the best time of your life, enjoy it whether you have money or not :p:.

    Nope. I'm there to learn about History. My end result isn't a job it's an improved knowledge.

    No, instead I'll pay off my loans and go rent a swanky apartment near the university while I attend it.

    Oh, I forgot winning the lottery entitles a few million squids.

    In addition, I'll smuggle some students from India and let them go to university for me. :p:

    No, definitely not... not much longer left, so there's no point in wasting over two years of work.

    Yeah. I'm not sure why I'm staying in the first place. I suppose I quite like maths.
