    I do have to continue to disagree with you, you are basing this on subjective experience, not fact. Being at university myself I know a lot of people who are here to further their education and to propel them into the graduate world with a decent degree, which will hopefully help them continue along a chosen path. Personally I was not sure about what I wanted to do after 6th form, so followed the university path. Just because I went instead of getting a job without a clear idea about where I was going in life... and I guess I was delaying the inevitable of going into the working world... does not mean that I will not utilise the opportunities presented to me. Sure I go out and sure I drink, but I am still going to finish with a decent mark and go on into the working world and strive for a good job and career.

    Many of my peers are the same and I think that your comments are quite narrow minded and do not reflect the univeristy population as a whole.
    The fact is, you're not so much "continuing to disagree with me" as you are utterly failing to grasp my point. Did I say my comments reflected the university population as a whole? Or did I say "University as a whole is not a pointless experience", which is the exact opposite? I hope you are on a "drinking course" rather than a serious one, you can't even read properly.

    You also criticise me for basing my post only on subjective experiences, rather than facts. You then continue to post about your subjective experience, without offering any facts at all. Which makes it very hard to take your post as anything but a wind up.

    Yup, drinking myself silly. Can't wait until I can collect Job Seekers.
