Is College Right for You?

The best way to decide whether a technical college is right for you is to try getting a job without it. After a few months of working a job that doesn't challenge or satisfy you, you'll be in a much better position to consider going to college.

If you want to be a public defender, or a skilled worker in a union, or a police officer, or a veterinarian or a teacher or a writer, and you want it badly enough, then college is right for you. All you need is the drive to make it to your final goal of having the job of your dreams.

The question isn't really whether college is "right" for you or not. The question is, where do you want to go, and will college help you get there? The rest is just a matter of how badly you want it.

College is just four years. That's not a very long time compared to the rest of your life! Put in the time and effort now, and see what new doors and interests anf friendships will open up before you! Because in reality, you'll never know how much you like college until you've experienced it.

Have you tested yourself before? Have you pushed yourself to the limits of how hard you can work, and how far you're willing to go for a dream?

The bottom line is that you need to decide what kind of life you want to live, and then make up your mind to live it.
