    This is my 4th year attending College. Tomorrow, I start what should be my last semester.

    What I found out is that I need 130 credits to graduate, and I have earned 103 credits. The max. credits I can take during a semester is 17, meaning I will have to go back to school again in the fall for one more semester. /forums/images/graemlins/crazy.gif

    I don't wanna go to school!!!! /forums/images/graemlins/1zhelp.gif

    I know how you feel. I went through 4 years, now in my 5th. It'll be another year or two before I'm done! /forums/images/graemlins/shocked.gif

    That was the position I was in, so I decided to work the next semester instead of going to school. That was 1977 and I finally went back and finished this fall. Go ahead and finish no matter what it takes, it's too easy to keep putting it off.

    Don't worry , a recent "poll" showed that the average student takes 6-7 years to complete an undergraduate degree. Atleast thats what somebody told me. /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif

    Well, I was going to start my own business revolving around parting trucks out, putting trucks together, selling parts, doing repairs, etc...

    But, thats what I tried doing all last year and I just lost money. I try to tell myself that I can actually turn a profit if I devoted more time to doing work after school is over and I have the time.

    We'll see.
