WoW has changed my life though I'm torn as to whether it was for better or worse. Freshman year of college I changed rooms after the first semester ended due to an absolutely horrible room mate situation. I moved in with another fellow WoW player. I moved into a room with him one floor down in the same building I was living in. The first time I walked out of that room I noticed a sign hanging at the top of my neighbor's door across the hall that read: "Scryer's Tier" and there it began. It turned out that about 10 of the 19 rooms on that floor were occupied by wow players and I ended up making some great friends!On the flip side, WoW is not conducive to study habits unless you are a very well disciplined person. While others wasted their time drinking and partying, I wasted my time drinking, partying and then returning back to the room to blow up guild chat. Though in terms of professional skill, I feel I am one of, if not the, most qualified members of my graduating class. Downside being that I'll be here for another semester, while all their lives and careers are getting started.I could go on, but I'll leave it there. I've made great friends and great memories, but at a cost.

I paid a similar cost to MUDs, given when I went through college.Let me tell you: That cost is minimal. One extra semester (or year) isn't that big of a deal in the long run. The friendships can persist for much longer, and the price was well worth it. :)
