How many years do you want to spend in school after high school?

I don't even plan on graduating from high school.
Absolutely none.
I'd be okay with spending a few months or a year getting some sort of certificate.
An associate's degree (2 years) sounds like a decent amount of time.
I'm okay with spending around 4 years learning, but I'd rather spend that time in an
apprenticeship actively learning my trade than in a classroom.
I want a bachelor's degree (4 years), but I don't think I could spend any longer in school.
I'd be okay with getting a master's after my bachelor's degree (6-8 years total), but I think I'd
burn out after that.
I really don't care; I'd be willing to spend up to 10-12 years or so to get an advanced degree,
like an MD or a PhD.
