I know I feel more stupider after reading the article and the comments. Total drivel.

I graduated at 24 but it wasn't because of my involvement in my sorority. I worked two jobs in order to pay my way through school. I did not want any crazy student loans that would take me 20 years to pay off. I also graduated late because in January of my my "first" final semester I broke my wrist and had to drop two classes which I could not take until the following September.

I graduated at 22 after having REALLY crammed it all in and did 1 summer school session. MANY of my friends did more summer school than I did AND went at least 1 semester longer, if not a full year longer. I didn't bother even opening up the article based on the reviews here, but it sounds like a load of crap.

As far as would I extend college (by the way, most Americans call it college, not university) the answer is hell to the no. I was close to being breaking news for how stressed out I was at the end of my senior year. Add another year of that just so I could be forced to go build another friggin homecoming float or sit through another chapter meeting? Ummmm, no. In fact, I'm an advocate for allowing seniors who have been members since their freshman year to have reduced obligations to the chapter, just so they don't drop out.

Excuse me, but you did not READ the article and then report it here accurately, OP. and you didn't interpret it correctly either. At all. I think you need to stay in school.

Yes it is drivel. Look at the source. Yikes.

LOL. It's really not that impressive. People always think I skipped a grade in HS or something. Nope, just went to a private school where they let kids into K at 4!

It was annoying being the youngest all the time (ex: everyone is going out and you're not 21 YET and you feel like you will never be 21 EVAR.)

Then you get older and it saves you from being old as dirt on your second Masters and it's all good.

Did a spammer bump this before AOX81 commented? How did this random thread resurface after a year?
