How long have you been out of school? High School? College?

Everyone has graduated at different times, depending on what method of schooling you're talking about. I graduated from high school in 1998, so that's been around 11 years....hard to believe it's been that long. When I finally graduated from college, it was 2003. This was a mere 6 years ago. This wasn't quite as long as high school.

Hi, CRSunrise. I have graduated from high school in 1997. That was 13 years ago. I last attended college in 2003. I never graduated, I just took credit courses. It seems like a really long time ago. But, now I look at the other high schooler's and I am amazed! I am saying to myself that time sure does fly by very fast! When I was in high school, these kids were probably in elementary school by then. And now, look at them, they are graduates now, or soon to be graduates!

I graduated in 1974 so I've been out of school for 35 years now. Hard to believe but sometimes it feels like yesterday. I never went to college but had on the job training in the food industry as a manager.

In my country, the kindergarten level was 2 years, elementry school for 6 years, junior high scool for 3 years and the senior high school for 3 years. For university, it depend on what subject you choose. Generally it takes 4 years to finished it. So we must go to school for 16 years until we have degree. But when you take advance, it take more 2-3 years. I finished it 16 years, on time.
