Getting into college is a major challenge. Yet, once in, prepare to work hard to uncover your capabilities and apply yourself. College can be a fabulous launching pad to a successful career or a series of careers.
However, if college plans are not set and thought through, a student can easily get derailed:
On average only 67% of students will return for sophomore year.
Only 19% of students finish a four-year degree in four years.
For the Class of 2015, only 14% had ‘career type jobs’ lined up after graduation, and the average student debt load for each was $35,000.
