    Yes!!! I certainly would *thinks and is thoroughly aware of not only how much her current degree is costing her, but how much a masters of physio is going to cost her too: ie. 20K per year postgrad - I was like 'wtf???' :rolleyes: :eek: when I found out y/day morning'

    Omg even if I won the lottery I don't even think I'd have enough for a car lol lol or not of my dreams at any rate considering what I'd prolly do is pay off the first degree (right now I owe the govt. a fair bit ) and fully pay off the 2nd, instead of getting loan like what I'll have to no doubt do :/

    Nevermind, determined I am to achieve my goals regardless :cool:

    Anyway seriously if I won that much I'd want to put some of it to good causes, particularly environmental and for animals too :p:

    My question is, would you carry on with your education...college/Uni/training course...so that you could get a job and have a career, or wuld just just forget about education and go on a 20 year long holiday without the worry of money?
    I would still go to university and have a job when I win the lotto. The lottery money will be spent on loads of stuff, after that, there might not be much left, and it might lead to no money at all. Therefore, having a job will be good, so after the lottery money is spent and gone, there is some money from my job to spend on.

    what u talking about?

    a few million (lets say 10).

    you can pay off your education in less than £100,000 and thats 1/100 of your total winnings!

    Of course I would carry on, and would have a jolly good time at that. Wow, imagine going to university a millionnaire. I'd be able to control myself and make sure I studied though. I'd stay on in education and do my PhD etc. And then afterwards I could risk trying to become an author or something!! Don't NEED a career but I'd get one if I got bored.

    Ooh. I'd pay for the most expensive degree course in the best university that I can possibly haul my ass into. This is invariably a course in Medicine. Of course, it also means you don't have to live like a pauper during your uni days and can afford to give girls lavish treats.

    I would. what i would do is take out a certain proportion of the total winnings, say 75-100k and put the rest into an account and set it up with the bank that the money cant be accessed by me untill i'm like 28/30. i would then have enough to do what i want within limits till then. get my career going and so forth.

    Imagine the interest on the total as well after a few years!! :cool:
