    I have been into SEO/IM since I was 16

    I bought into the conventional idea of education like most do, and ended up doing a degree that I hated. I got to the third year, and I dropped out. I only had one year left.

    Friends and family thought I was stupid, but it all worked out in the end

    Definitely a lot of fun man! That's the only aspect that I miss

    In the UK, we can attend University on a student loan, which we only have to pay back at a stupid rate of about £5 a week when we reach an income of £21,000 or more. In other words, you don't have to pay anything back until you are making a decent income, and even when you do have to pay it back, it's a negligible amount.

    With that in mind, if you can go to University while making £££ online, then I would still recommend it, purely for the birds :D

    How about not looking only at the career side.. There are so many interesting things to learn in the world. Study something just for the fun of it like @IGKing
