    It was making me utterly miserable. But they're gonna go APE at how much they spent. I'm going back next year (2010).

    this line worked for my mum:

    "i hated the course, i was miserable and depressed and if you think about it, im going to be graduating 1 year later, and hopefully in that 1 extra year the effects of the recession wont be as big so ill be more likely to get a job".

    worked on her

    Well my sister dropped out just after second year and they pretty much kicked her out; she had to live with her boyfriend. Although she dropped out after second, I'm after first, and she knew she was never going back, I'm going back next year. Hopefully they won't be too mad. TOO being the main word.

    If it was making you miserable then surely your parents knowing that you are happy is worth more than any amount of money spent. After all why carry on with something miserable that could stay with you for a lifetime if you carry it on into a job etc when you know that you had the chance to change and do what you feel best doing. They'll understand when they put it in perspective.

    That would require full time, but make no mistake, you can make thousands with ease ontop of your daily life. Pop a pill for a month and get 2 g's for nothing.

    Easy money.

    Why did it make you so miserable, if you don't mind me asking.

    You going to go back for a different course and/or uni?

    It's all in the presentation. Don't use phrases like "dropped out". You've deferred your exams for a year so you can earn some money and return refreshed to your course ready to score a better degree than you would have if you'd just ploughed on. Mmmkay?

    yeah I've heard, it sounds good, as long as you're not dealing with dodgy totally new medicine.

    Do you have a student loan? I think they cover an extra year of study if you need it... since it's quite common for people to drop out if they're miserable, or don't like the course.

    I think they might just get annoyed because you didn't express your doubts to them first, but if you were truly unhappy...
