Have you considered doing uni for a year or two, THEN taking a year off, then going back?
I've talked to a lot of people who took a year off before uni, and those who took a year off in the middle and those who took a year off in the middle found it far easier to get back into it. You have more of an incentive to finish, since you've already started.
That's what I'm doing. I've been at uni for a year and a half, and I'll be taking a year off starting at the end of this semester to be a working student, then I'll go back and finish school.
