Do you agree or disagree that college might be a bad idea unless you plan on being a Dr or Lawyer?
A college professor interviewed stated that unless a student ranks better than the top 60% of their HS senior class, they should forget about college because studies find that they won't make it all the way through school.
My question is this, do you feel that the money spent for a college education now days is worth it?
My youngest daughter in taking an IT technical course at the school she attends. She makes excellent grades and can come out of high school as a Network Specialist in the 35,000.00 a year range. We always expected and planned for both girls to go to college. Her teacher told me that the way everything changes so rapidily in this field that she would be sent to classes through her employer.
I'm asking this in Seniors because many have been there and done that either with college or trade school.
abuelama....glad you spoke about scolarships. They really helped my oldest daughter when she was going to college.
When my dad passed in Oct. we established a scolarship in his name. You better believe that my youngest daughter was in the back of my mind when we did this. If all goes well with contributions we will be able to award the first scholarship in the spring of 2010 which will be when she graduates.
I feel so much better now Paul.....thank you. I've wanted to expose this person for what he/she is for a long time.
