I would guess it averages out to about 1 class per week. I've been a lot better about it this semester in general. Previously I would say more like one day of classes per week

Impeach and try Bush/Cheney! 911 was an inside job!
I used to skip my accounting class lectures. I never skipped the labs, but the prof was a waste.

How often did/do you skip?

I rarely do.

Never. But I have to pay for my classes and my professors are very tough this semester.

most likely where they all gathered into a computer lab to do excel projects involving crosslinked tables, pivot tables, accounting formulas and other fun stuff

in the end, it is just a personal decision - some will skip, some won't, and for varying reasons

It depends. I have a hard time learning from lecture - I find it much easier to learn either from a textbook or from a set of lecture notes. This is one of the reasons I find it annoying when teachers refuse to post their lecture notes, when they have an electronic copy, in an attempt to "make you go to class" - it's stupid, what's the point, to go to lecture, or to learn the material? Imagine you're giving a business presentation - are you going to tell people there, "I'm not sending anyone the electronic notes so you better be there!" Hell no. You're going to send them the notes because, can you imagine, someone might not remember or write down 100% of what you said?

Anyway, I pretty much guaranteed miss the first 1/2 of my first lecture in a day I also miss roughly every 4th class on top of that. Based on my grades though, well, I think it would be very hard to make the case that I've lost anything due to my attendance.

With regard to homeworks and projects though, I don't think I've missed a single one. I'm almost always the person in the group that does the majority of the work because I tend to push for "overachieving" on the projects rather than doing just enough to make a decent grade. I find homework invaluable in learning the material.

Oh yeah, and I do pay for my own classes, for those of you considered people whose parents pay for their college spoiled.

I don't skip class unless it's a really really good reason. And by "good reason" I mean like being physically ill or unwell. Health is sometimes more important- if you won't be able to concentrate because of how you feel, it's important to recharge and be able to go to the next class or be OK for tomorrow.

A lot of my teachers take attendance, which I really don't see the point of.

But a couple teachers also say things in class that you need for the test that aren't in electronic notes.

It really depends on the school and you, as a student. My school has a lot of policies that screw you over, as well as teachers who will do the same.

I pay for my own college also.

I went to a public university that 98% of the professor took role because it was required since the university is given money based on student attendance and enrollment.
If you missed more than 5 days of any class you were dropped from the class.
I would probably would miss 2 or 3 classes.

Virtually never. I even attended a non-graded language school and I didn't skip.

It would depend on the class. I had a few that were just...not worth attending.

The one was some computer class...part lecture, part lab...during the lecture portions all the guy would do is surf the internet: "Oh, now this is a a good's called 'Google'". I think I showed up twice to the lecture.

Another computer class I would continuously ditch with this hot goth girl and go to the mall. Seriously, why do they still force remedial computer classes on kids in college? Does ANYONE attend this shit?

Another one was 5 hour marketing class where the guy would talk about how a pack of gum caught his wife's eye at the supermarket. In that class we were put in groups of four and every fourth week our group would have to give a basically we just cycled into the class. Two of us would attend one week, the other two the following week. Then we'd all show up to give the group presentation. Rinse. Repeat. Seriously, 5 hour long classes are brutal as shit. I'd sooner have taken a 7:30 am class.
