If I knew what I knew now, there is no way I would have wasted my time getting a BA in Communications! After I wasted my time doing that, I spent 8 more years in grad school getting my masters in education! What a waste. I’m sure not everyone has that same situation happen to them but if I had experienced life and working before I went to college, I would have been able to make better decisions.
From what I learned about college, here are the top 5 reasons of why kids should go to college in their 20s after working a bit.
- They have no idea what they want to do and college costs a LOT of money.
- Make sure you know which school is best to go to for your major and not just because it was the only one that accepted you.
- Partying too hard from being let loose from parents site is a big problem and usually causes more waste in a lot of money.
- It is not for everyone.
- Know about a career before you invest hundreds of thousands of dollars of yours or the banks or your parents money.
Granted I didn’t do any of this and I did basically the complete opposite and I don’t say that I regret any of it but when my daughter gets ready for college I will give her a ton of advice that I did not know and hope she’ll wait before going to college undecided.
