Lightbulb College MK6 owners!

Where do you go to school and what are you majoring in?

I'm currently a senior at Florida International University, getting a BS in Criminal Justice and will begin working on my Masters in Public Administration next year.

I'd love to hear about the rest of you guys!

I'm graduating this year from The University of Alabama at Birmingham with a double major in Criminal Justice and Psychology. I work full time in addition to school to support my myself. I'll be really glad when I can just work.

I currently pay for the low monthly down payments, since I was fortunate enough to have my parents put a sizeable down payment on the car. But only after waiting almost 3 years for it!

Drove around in a 2.0 Jetta that was falling apart on me all through out most of college.

I'm still a fresh graduate from Delaware State Univ. I currently lease my GTI but I plan on keeping it. Got a great financing deal through VW tho in the college grad. program. Look into it.

I can hardly understand how this is possible lol. Good for you though.


I go to University of Waterloo in Ontario... I assume roastpuff is the only one who might have a clue where it is. I graduate in May from Mechatronics Engineering.

Car, thankfully, is courtesy of bank of mom and dad.

Easy, $20 an hour, 20 hours a week equals roughly 400 a week. My monthly payments are 400 and I don't have rent or anything to pay for since i'm still living with the folks so I still have about 300 a week to play with.

I have a few friends at the 'Loo. Nearly ended up going there but in-province was much cheaper.

I can believe it. I get paid $3.25 an hour at Thai Lanna and on average I come home with 80+ in tips on Fridays and I work from 5pm to 10pm close. If you calculate that it comes to a little over $19 an hour. Then weekends I work at a nursing home and get paid $10.50 an hour work 7.5 hour days. then Monday to Thursday school lol but 24-7 I try to find any excuse to drive my gti
