    I'd get a job - but it would be good to not worry about money at uni, and to be able to buy a house straight away when I finnished.

    And the money won't last forever

    I'd go to uni, if only to give myself something to do, as I get bored fast. Also find the idea of uni a good one. Afterwards I would get a interesting job, whatever that may be.

    I'd still carry on with my education and perhaps do multiple degrees with the money - an education is the one thing money can't buy.
    Unfortunately I don't have a lottery ticket and never ever intend to purchase one

    Continue my education, so many life skills and important things to pick up through life, if I were to just stop suddenly and become a spendaholic (no doubt I'd spend loads even though I'd continue my education :p:), I'd be a bit odd personality-wise, perhaps not very communicative etc.

    It might be fun being the "rich guy who doesn't need to bother with education" for a while, but it'll lose it's excitement eventually.

    Life is all about challenges, challenging yourself to do better physical/mentally/emotionally or a combination of the lot. Uni is a challenge I wanna complete whether I win the lottery or not.

    whether i'd able to concentrate and focus would be interesting though. i suppose i could as i wouldnt want to fail something

    I'd still go to education otherwise I'd never achieve my ambition careerwise. In fact, after gaining a job I'd probably go part-time or something after qualification and do something else with the money, perhaps studying part-time for different areas of discipline that are not covered by my career, such as Anglosaxon, Norse and Celtic studies etc.

    Yes. I would get tremendously bored just sitting around staring at my trinkets.

    And believe me, I know money does not buy happiness or fuffilment. But uni can give both.
