That’s just one of the sobering pieces of information given in the below infographic.
With costs at an all-time high, some feel that getting a professional certification, starting a business, or joining the military would be better investments than going to college. And of course, there are many success stories from people who never graduated or went to college.
But many still insist that the degree remains worth the cost. Some studies have shown that those with degrees have more job stability in addition to more opportunities for employment.
Either path could be disastrous if you don’t have some kind of plan. With so many personal factors that may not be included in studies and infographics (What do the future job prospects look like for your major? Where do you plan to live?), it is definitely worth taking the time to explore your options and think about well in advance.
