    Need help deciding what to do..
    I left school after standard grades because the commute was too much for me. I'm turning 20 and have a steady job that I enjoy most of the time. I recently applied for a collage course in Glasgow and got in.
    My question is, do I leave a good job to become a student? Most people I know end up not enjoying collage. What's it really like being in collage?
    Most people said in school that high school will be the best years of your life.. Does the same apply to being a student in uni or collage?

    Thanks
