I was sitting with a friend of a friend recently who had some concerns about their financial package for a state public college. The estimated cost of tuition, books and room/board… drum roll please…. $32,000 per year!
What I am saying is that by just assuming that college tuition is what it is and so be it, might not be so healthy for your long term financial self.
– Community college then transfer to local university. – Military or ROTC programs for college tuition. – Trade schools. – Online certifications.
The middle schools have college shirt days and they're all told they are worthy of a college education, even if they have a reading level that is currently at second grade.
They're constantly bombarded with filtered lifestyles on social media and told that they HAVE to go to college to succeed. And yes, 8 times out of 10, most people who have a college degree will earn more then someone who doesn't.
Well that really depends. Sure teachers, doctors, lawyers, engineers, and numerous other degrees might land you a job right after college.
