What did you go to college for? Did you end up using it at all?

I am not a college graduate. I dropped out after a few days of school. I do have my high school diploma. I've been out of school for over 3 years now and I'm ready to get my behind back in! So I'm planning on taking online classes with the University of Phoenix to get a Bachelor of Science in Business with a concentration in Accounting. I'm not 100% sure that that's what I want to do, but it's a start!

  • I am a junior, completing my BA in Psychology with minors in Criminal Justice and U.S. History. I will most likely not use any of it. It was just a personal goal to accomplish. My loyalty lies with homeschooling my children and running a household right now.

  • I have a business degree....I have never used it! lol. It bores me though, and I only picked business because I had no idea what I wanted to do, and I was forced to go to college when I did.

  • I started College with the intentions of getting a degree in Business, I fell in love with art history, I got preggers and that was it.... I withdrew 17 years ago. That College is now literally in my back yard and I walked over and updated all my info recently. When my oldest son starts next year I plan to go back to get certified in Medical Administration. I am lucky enough to live between two very large hospitals and several smaller satellite hospitals owned by the Cleveland Clinic. :)

  • I would suggest really doing your research on private online colleges such as the University of Phoenix. They are not always what you think. Best wishes!

  • I'm currently going to school for Informatics and I'm already using it because I've gotten side jobs that require either the coding or tech writing skills from along the way.

  • I didn't go. If I did go as an adult I would like to do sociology and psychology.
