  • I think maybe 20 or 21. Stupid decision. College is a waste of time.

  • 23. I'm glad that I went when I did instead of right of high school. For me, I think I needed some of the experiences and life lessons that I got before college that I wouldn't have gotten there or later on. However, my life might have been a lot easier had I gone to college sooner.

  • 19. It didn't do me much good, either. In fact, no good at all professionally.
