    Was medically deferred from the military - planned to go to university afterwards anyway though, but my whole career trajectory has changed now from engineering to high-finance.

    There was a guy from hp who tried to solve it, but that proof was flawed

    I feel as though either "wanted to learn more about my subject" or "wanted the opportunity to conduct research" should have been an option here...

    I wanted a backup plan if my career goals fell through.

    They did.

    So did my degree.
