Deciding if and when to go to college is one of the first major life choices you must make when you graduate from high school. Before you invest 4 years of time and a whole lot of money you need to know what constitutes a successful outcome after getting your degree. The following simple chart shows two life paths:
A) Going to college for 4 years;
B) Working for 4 years
Your success is based on what you learn during those 4 years, how much debt or savings you accumulate, and what your job prospects are when done. College is great, but you must go in with your eyes wide open.
