M8 i would def. advise going to uni, even if you feel the degree is a bit mickey mouse. I must say i'm now in my third and final year and can't say i feel like i've learnt all that much (but i'm pretty sure i have), but wot it will give me is a piece of paper saying that i'm able to stick it out and learn and potential employers need to pay me more.
And here come the best bit - the life style! You'll only ever have this one oppertunity to live pretty much care free, spending most of you time playing footie/rugby, going on tour, and drinking in the bar - all of this on school nights. Add women to this equation and you've got it made.
I'm tempted to do masters once i finish to get another year of sports and drinking done before I hit the real world.
Neway this is just one self-confessed eternal students 2 pennies worth.
NB: This will only happen to students that get involved - not sit in their rooms doing stuff that would make their mums v.ashamed.
