No, but I wish I had. Latin teaches you about declensions and many other interesting things about languages (I learned something about them from German).
Latin is not terribly practical. If you want to go into international business or something, German, Japanese or Chinese or Russian would be fun. If you want to know a language that is easy and practical for everyday in the US, Spanish is great, or French if you're up north. Latin is great (especially as a 3rd language, such as with Spanish- the 2 are related so it's an easy pair) if you want to go into medicine, law or theology. Theology is the only field I can think of which really demands Latin these days. Of course, a lot of the great works were written in Latin, so culturally it's nice, but nice doesn't pay the bills (thanks, DH).
Learning it on your own seems to me a pain. You can't just look words up in the dictionary until you know the structure of the language
