((un)fortunately)The plan has changed, I'll be attending law school at Uppsala University this spring instead. Dålig rygg vid 19-års ålder och risken att det blev allt för repetitivt gör att jag väljer juridiken istället, närmare hem dessutom! smile.gif

I can respect this a lot. I don't know if I'd be a good welder but I know I'm close to this in spirit, and would've made a success of myself if I'd done what you are doing. It was quite apparent I shouldn't have gone to college - I have no attention span, and didn't have any interest in what people were 'teaching' me in college - and I really didn't learn a thing. I took maybe 2 or 3 interesting classes, but general education was a bore, I didn't really find any higher level courses interesting and couldn't stand to have 201-level undergrad people TA'ing me in 101, but that was the nature of things 6 or 7 years ago when schools started to realize they had no money. Typical middle-class liberal arts degree, and I went on an academic scholarship, so I had no one to pressure me.

About the 2nd or 3rd year in, I started getting thoughts of jumping ship and trying to do something that required the use of my hands, which I am fairly adept at. I was getting my degree for free and I only had to keep a 2.0, so I stayed, and studied Korean celadon pottery and did like 21 hours in that instead. I walked at graduation with nothing but some green plates, basically. In hindsight, I should've quit college and studied joinery, or possibly automotive bodywork. Even if I had, I may not be doing the same thing today, but I feel I would've enjoyed the past 10 years more had I done so, and would have more money to show for myself.

UT San Antonio!!! Woo state school! Yeah I did retail after graduation for awhile. I have my own company now so it all worked out.

I'm a freshman at Northwestern University. I actually really like seeing support or confidence behind the idea of not going to college... that was a major faux-pas in the prep school I attended beforehand.

I too went to Austin College. (Highly recommend)

 

Given the numbers, you'd think it's a miracle that two graduates of this school would both be posting on this message board.

I think I've come across one other Aggie on this forum. If we talked more about designer cammo then I am sure we could get those numbers up.

I entered UT Austin's English BA program in 1985.  Dropped out after a couple of years and endured years of nagging about finishing my degree from various loved and not-so-loved ones.

 

I graduated in 2004.  I'm somewhat proud of my accomplishment, but I also feel pretty sheepish about the tortuous path I "chose."

 

Also got my MSLIS from UNT in 2007.

They have a BS in plastics engineering? That's interesting. Is there a plastics company in the immediate area?
