We all know in life that our choices mold us who we become. Especially in terms of education, one must pick what's best for him/her. But did you make the right choice in terms of education? How did it affect your life now? On a personal note, It's not that I regret my choice of education. My choice is more because of my situation in life. But given a chance I would still want to become a lawyer. I know I would make a good one!

Go ahead and be a lawyer. :) Anyway, I wish i took a business management course in college. I took Info Mgt which is a computer course. I think I was able to master the techniques in putting my own business if I decided to study about it in college. But graduating with a course you don't really want is better than being an undergrad right ? So it's okay with me, I actually enjoy working than studying. It feels good to earn my own money. Good luck on your future endeavor.

I think I let my family, other people, and life get the best of me. I always wanted to become an engineer, but I let too many people get the best of me by pulling me down. Some of the decisions I do regret because I turn 31 next month and I am still chasing a bachelors degree, and some of my friends have always rode me about not finishing college, while they have these powerful degrees. Now, I have disposed of these people, I can't really dispose of my family until I move away. What I don't regret is that I had to work for what I would get, and some of the schools I went to, a lot of kids were getting things handed to them left and right. The school I am at now (one more year, and yay) is so gritty in that everyone works hard, no matter where they're from. I think the school i am at now is great because you learn what you need to learn in the class and make up the difference working hard to succeed. I might not be the smartest person in the world, or the most successful, but in the end, strength and hard work will bring sustainable success.

Actually, at first i regretted having to obey my father into taking up my course BSBA. But not anymore. Because i was able to get a job, right after failing the board. Though, because i am not interested in numbers i failed in the board exam. However, this course is really what is being sought for in offices. Though, right now, i am not with accounting anymore, but as an executive assistant to the Senior Vice President of our company. But still, i get to use my degree still, because i verify the details and entries in the vouchers and checks my boss has to sign.

You can still become a lawyer someday. It has no age limit anyway. My choices were mostly influenced by my parents and I didn't have any regrets. My parents did well in making me understand how important education is a person's life. They were not pushing me to make the choice but they made me see how life could be better if i made that choice. Thus, i don't have any regrets. Regret is something that i don't harbor in my life. I really don't like regretting what i did in the past. I just learn from the mistakes if there are any and move on.

Hello Zenki, I never regret for what i am today.I never did what i did not want to do.I am an engineer and i always wanted to be an engineer even my parents also wanted me to be an engineer. Though when i finished my engineering my father wanted me to be an IAS(Indian administrative services)officer but i always knew that i don't have potential to clear the entrance so i never tried for it. But today i feel i am bit satisfied to be an engineer.

I think I'd like to have tried different subjects before I decided on one. Education is expensive and at such a young age we still don't really know what we want to do. I think people should explore the world and themselves before they settle down to a single education.

Hi Zenki. Well originally I went to university to study psychology, because I was good at it and I knew it would give me good career prospects. I didn't hate it, but I didn't love it either, and I eventually gathered the nerve to swap to a course I do love. I'm now doing Zoology (either with Animal Behaviour or Herpetology as a minor, I have another year to decide on that bit!) and I love it. It's harder, as I don't have the natural aptitude for it that I did for psychology, and I've no idea what I want to do with it, but I enjoy it, and given the £30k ish debt I can expect to come out of university with, thats important to me! I think I have made the right decision, but I guess we'll see later on!

As of this point in time, I don't really regret my choices in education. As of right now to say the very least. Now years and years down the line, with the benefit of what is going to happen in the future, I really think that could change. Of course there are a few other choices that I might regret and changing them could really cause a lot of choices that I made in other ways. Changing one choice could really make a lot of other choices needing to be remained. There are just a lot of times where it just feels like changing one choice is going to open up a box where many other choices will need to change to say the very least. However right now at this moment in time, there are no regrets at the moment. Who knows what regrets I might have in the future.
