I find it amusing when people say something like, "I've got college," to indicate that they have homework or class or whatever. And nine times out of ten, they're a freshman or go to a community college. I extrapolate that they're trying to make it sound important.
It was always "school" to me, and that seems to be the case even with grad and doctoral students. (I've dated/married/engaged enough of them to know!) I mean, every fall, I went back to school, not college.
Just observing something I've noticed before when I saw it again in a forum.
