    Well I'm not there yet, but I will go, just because I've never considered any alternative tbh. The thought of going straight to work after college terrifies me.

    It's just always been something that I 'need' to do.
    Plus, I like being a student. The longer the better.

    Because in the current economic crises I think I would feel a bit left out if I too didn't have a massive debt problem by the time I was 25

    And the learning thing I guess....:rolleyes:

    My college tutors persuaded me to and as I didn't have anything else lined up upon finishing college, I thought I might as well go to uni.
