"This is the way the world ends/ Not with a bang but a whimper."So T.S. Eliot clearly couldn't have had Disney Channel's four-season run of "Hannah Montana" in mind as an apt metaphor when he wrote "The Hollow Men," but the words remain eerily relevant.The vehicle that brought Miley Cyrus into the collective cultural consciousness -- and revived the career of dad Billy Ray -- quietly went the way of so many children's series before it on Jan. 17, with the last episode, "Wherever I go."In the two-parter, Miley (recently outed as her alter-ego, Hannah) faces the finale-worthy dilemma of going to college or starring in a film. Since this is Disney, clearly both options would be equally desirable for the young demographic, so what's ideal to kids these days?Well, Miley got into Stanford.

Hannah Montana concludes its four-season run on the Disney Channel this Sunday, and the promo for the series finale shows Miley (Miley Cyrus) having to make THE BIGGEST DECISION EVER — doing a movie or going to college. I really have no idea which way she’s gonna go. When she flops herself on the couch and says, "I want this part more than anything else in the world," I’m thinking movie. But then we see what appears to be young co-eds in pajamas at a dorm and I’m thinking college. But then she’s at an airport — movie? Then she looks at a framed graduation photo sitting in a set that looks like it’s been borrowed from a soap opera — movie, but she quits, and then college? What’s your guess? Watch the promo below.

The 18-year-old actress, who also just recorded her debut album, Fight or Flight, says she wants to work with some big names: "I would love to work with someone like [American Beauty director and Oscar winner] Sam Mendes."
