Not sure. Given my current situation, I'd probably wait a while, and have my parents loan me some money and tell them I'd pay them back with SUPER-interest. (Well if I won millions, they'd get a nice early retirement regardless) That's if it was like a huge jackpot. I wouldn't want to go crazy thinking about and spending money, along with all the taxes I'd have to do while I'm in school.
Reminds me of this time I was telling my Dad a story. "So I wrote down my numbers, but the line got really long and I didn't buy the ticket" To which he replied "Good." I said "No, because if I waited online you'd be 75000 dollars richer!" (I wrote down the exact first 5 Mega Millions numbers that came out that night!!!! I already decided if I ever won I'd give him a huge chunk)
Alas, I missed my chance.
It'd also be fun to know that I'm financially secure - and see everyone freaking out b/c someone won and didn't claim. So yeah, if I won a jackpot I'd wait until I'm on break from school to cash it. If it was a multi-million jackpot I'd borrow some money from the parents for the time being.
