University of Virginia Student graduates in one year http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2006/09/19/AR2006091901779.html After reading this since I'm applying to college this fall, I am both shocked at this accomplishment and a bit revulted. I'm sure you can all understand why I'm surprised because no normal person graduates college in a year and makes a profit from attending. So I'll skip to the revulsion. If I were even given the opportunity to graduate college in a year, I would definitely not accept it. College is one of the most important transitions in a person's life to the real world. It's the first time where we live independently and one year just seems way too short. Also, college should be the time of your life. And I'm not just talking about parties and stuff. It's the best time to make new friends, find love, discover new experiences, new interests, and learn from mistakes. One year is definitely not enough. Any thoughts? Would you graduate college in a year?
