Say, if one joins a seminary and studies there, but after a year or two he found out that priesthood isn't suitable for him, so he leaves the seminary. Do these people go to colleges/universities then? Do people feel that they have wasted time (say no please) or discovered something about themselves and the relationship with God and other people?
I ask this because many articles say that not even half of the people who entered a seminary graduates and became ordained, and I believe it is a fearsible concern for teenagers like me who are planning on tertiary education at universities.
Now I would also like to ask, are there people who felt the call to priesthood while studying in Unis (under/postgraduate), or even after finishing a degree or has start working for quite a while? When would they start feeling the call to priesthood, and/or why have they chosen to delay their choice?
Does that mean they have wasted time while studying in universities?
The same holds true for girls, of course (well guess what I am a guy and do** not** want to be a nun at all), so I hope to have the support from people here. I think I have a hurried personality, so please bear with the questions if you find them unfocused. Thanks.
