If so, at what age did you decide you wanted to go? If not, at what age did you decide it just wasnt for you?

no I did not go to college if you mean the 3-4 yr programs....I just went to business college to get my "typing" certificate so I could start working asap....after high school...I had wanted to go to university but my father had made it hard for me to do anything and decide for myself what I wanted to do...but thankfully I had an elderly aunt that paid for my tuition and room/board....I never really felt I could become "anything" with a college degree but I applaud the one who did go to college and got their degrees....

It was just assumed that I would go to college, so I never really thought that I would never get to go. Thankfully my parents paid for my school so I didn't have to worry about that but they did have significant input into what schools i could and could not attend.

I went to a community college right after my high school graduation. I needed that time to pull my GPA up and get my requirements out of way.

I've also always wanted to go, and was also expected to go. I went directly after high school.
