more or less the attitude I took at the time.
It was tough that my friends were doing a 1 or 2 year tafe
course (or nothing at all) then getting jobs and money and
buying cars etc when I was a poor uni student. But I was
determined that I was going to graduate, no matter how long
it took, and it took me 6 years (BSc) part time and working
part time (as a car detailer).
I believe it paid off. As others have said uni gives you
a good grounding. There's also the fact that uni is a great
time in your life, a time you'll look back on in later years
and vaguely remember between all the drinking.
