Have any of you gone back to College or University after having a break in study or working for a time and then going back to study?

Also wondered if any of you have taken a gap year so you would give yourself more life experience?

I went straight to college after I graduated from high school...
even though at first I had in mind the possibility to take a gap year
but my parents were against it and said that I should just go to college and finish it...

I went right into college right after high school and I am still currently in college. I'm about half way done with my A.A degree. Not bad for 3 semesters, huh?

I went straight to college after graduating from High school. Now after getting my AA, I'm taking a break (well it because I miss the application date for a college). In the meanwhile, I'm teaching myself how to do certain things.

I took half a year off after A-Levels to work (partly because no application was open back then and my A-Level results were horrible) and I was debating on going a full gap year and getting experience at work before picking up again. At some point I also considered resitting for exams so I can get better results -- but luckily we found a college with an excellent program that accepts A-Levels and even the results I have. The work experience was fun though.

I was saving to take another course at college, but unfortunately I had family problems and all of the money had to be spent to help my father who is divorced from my mother. Also I had to help my mother for some years because I borrowed the money from her and needed to refund. Do not have much hope nowadays...
