did you go to college primarily to become gainfully employed or simply to become better educated in your chosen field?

what spicoli said, pretty much seemed like the thing to do. Plus it's free where i'm at. It's far from being 100% what i'd love to be doing, but not bad.

I was good at school, so it just seemed like the normal thing to do. There was honestly no under reason at the time. It was only once I started University that I actually figured out what I wanted to do with my life, and I'm damn happy I found that out.

I went to college for both reasons... I wanted to get a finacially stable job, but I also wanted to expand my mind... I learned more about myself than I ever expected in college...Great times...

I am first generation college. To my parents, it was a ticket to a better life. Hoenstly, for me, it was the only option in my mind at the time. However, now, I see that it was the best choice for me. If I could afford the pay downgrade, I would be a professor when I get my Ed.D.

Never thought about. I guess I just always assumed I'd go. Seemed like the thing to do.

Got tired of working in call center. I went to school when I was 18-19 dropped out cause I was hanging out with friends and partying way too much. Now, Im 25 and really dont want to be working in a call center or be a supervisor, so Im going back to school. Going back to get a degree in finance.
