Has the current poll affected anyone's thinking about college? I ask that especially of Jackie, who requested it.

Me, I answered 'no' to the poll. The universities I attended actually tried to make a good citizen/employee/person out of me, so it's not their fault that they failed. What I learned more than anything else in five years of college was how to procrastinate until the absolute last minute, sleep whenever I felt like it, skip class as often as possible without failing, and squirm my way free of responsibility when I did screw myself. Those of you who were my classmates back in college may (or may not) have shared a good laugh with me about my tendency to skip a lot of classes, but I pay the price for it now; it has been a daily struggle to make myself get off to work when I set my own hours and face little consequence for not going. Being a college student taught me that laziness is a virtue, and now that I'm in the real world, I have to spend time re-training myself to think differently. That's what the poll means to me.
