Well if you are good at chemistry, Chemical Engineering has got some pretty awesome shit going on right now. One of the professors at my university developed a polymer that captures mercury from contaminated water, and glows when it does so. Another professor developed a molecule that glows bright as a flashlight when it comes into contact with certain types of cancer cells, making it possible to visually remove cancerous areas. Seems glowing things are popular right now.

I'm currently halfway through my senior year in high school, and I plan to get a bachelor's in biochemistry. I hope to use that to get into med-school for neurology and possibly enroll in a M.D./Ph. D. program. That last bit could end up happening several different ways, but atm I'm pretty intent on ending up with both a Ph. D. and an M.D. BUT that's about six years away from even starting, so it very well may change. I'm kinda keeping my eyes open for IT and counseling just in case I need a backup or change my mind, and if all else fails I can always perform as a magician.

Currently doing my undergrad. I want to do a Masters and then a PhD, but funding is pretty impossible to get.

I am currently doing geography, I want to specialise in either tectonic geomorphology or glacial geomorphology.

Went to college years ago. Ended up being too much for me. Wish I could finish now that I don't have the obligations I used too, but it's impossible to get a loan these days, and I'm too dumb for any kind of scholarship. My street education is flawless, however, but it doesn't get me shit.

I went to college straight out of high school. Flunked my first semester, dropped out my second. Started working instead for a couple years, went back, flunked again. Found a boyfriend, lost my virginity and came out to my inlaws as gay (who were actually accepting). Went back to school, straight As two semesters in a row so far :)

I basically had no hope for myself and was in denial about being depressed. I live in a homophobic town and obviously that wasn't helping.

I'm only going for my associates in Information Technology, and unless I REALLY want to continue to a bachelors I'm finding a decent job and moving the fuck out of this town ASAP.

That sounds so cool ;A;
Engineering majors require all 4 semesters of calculus and 2 semesters of physics, though, and I don't really want to take more of either one... Hmm...
Well, if I don't do CHEN, I'm planning to at least do a chemistry minor, so I'll be taking a few of the right classes if I ever decide to switch, I guess.

Got my bachelors in the mid 90s. Will be starting my masters soon, so I put "pursuing a masters" since that's the most accurate.

Oh, my degree was in Computer Science. When I go for my Masters, I'll either stick with CompSci or I might go for A.I.

Studying for another HND on information technology and thinking of going for an honors in Software Dev.

Graduated high school, had my mother effectively force me into community college by way of guilting money out of my grandparents and then passing the duty of repaying them onto my dad, then didn't go back after the first semester because it was too much money that I didn't have to be in the same exact classes and environment I was in with high school.

Guess I was a high school dropout. Don't really think dropping out of 5th year counts, but oh well. Currently gaining more 'school' qualifications, though I'm becoming tempted to just get a job.

Bachelors in Political Science. I'm considering post graduate education but I just can't make up my mind in what, when, where, how, and if I really want to. Instead, I might just study Chinese again . *shrug*

Community college is both cheaper and can get me into a bachelor's degree program where I will have already had the basic classes and education of a 2 year college student.

Truth be told, my campus is actually three colleges where the credits between them transfer quite easily. It won't be much of a problem to get into their bachelor degree program for biology when I get my associates. I will have lessened the debt by quite a lot this way as well so I saw no reason to not do it.

I am hoping to get into a master's program eventually. I was thinking about medical studies.

Burned out way too early and dropped out in my senior year of high school. I wish to wait until a good opportunity arises before spending money that I do not have on schooling that I will not use in the future.

In high school, but due to mental stuff probably will be going for my GED. Then I'll take a year or two to rest and recover/think/etc, then maybe consider college.

If I decide to try for college, it'll be a two year course to become a vet tech.

I'm just going to a community college for generals, I have no clue what I want to major in though. I'd go for game design but I'm far too stupid for that.
Only true statement so far.
I'm an acting major.
lmao
Totally ain't a single thing wrong with not going to college. I know several people who didn't and they're all pretty successful. One of them is rocking a BMW as an insurance salesman.

Your use of multiple negatives makes that claim very believable.
