I know. It seriously made me be like, "Really dude?".
Would Quentin ultimately have been happier if he had chosen not to attend Brakebills?
Probably not. He would've just been miserable about different things. It was clear he wasn't happy with his life pre Brakebills and I don't think he would've done much to change that. He would've finished out his senior year pining away for Julia, went off to college been excited for a moment saying, "this is it! this is where my life begins!" and then the shiny newness would wear off and it would be back to square one.
