Student or Learner
The following dialog is what I read in a magazine:
A: Congratulations! I heard you were accepted to a prestigious university.
B: Thanks, but I was actually set on going to school overseas.
Does the verb 'set' here mean that someone is determined to do something? Is it the usual way to say 'I was set on doing something'? or do we just say 'but I set on going to school overseas'?

I set on doesn't work- set is an adjective here and not a verb.
