wetsuit too big?

I’m wondering how much affect my too-big wetsuit actually has on my swimming.  I just got started doing triathlons a few months ago and I wasn’t sure if I would keep up with it.  So I considered myself lucky to have a friend who had done an Iron Man a few years ago and still had her wetsuit that she was willing to sell to me for only $75.  It’s probably only 1 size too big so it fits pretty tight (especially around the neck!  ack!), but there are small folds in the shoulders and hips.  What really makes me wonder about it is when I take it off, a LOT of water pours out of the legs.  Is that normal?  When I’m swimming sometimes it feels like there is a lot of water built up in the lower legs of the wetsuit.  Again, I don’t know if that’s normal or if it’s due to the suit being too big.   Now that I’m still wanting to enter a few tri events here and there I’m wondering if I’m okay with the wetsuit I have or if I should bite the bullet and buy one the right size?
