Is college the best option after finishing high school?

After you graduate from high school it’s hard to know what you want to do because you might not have the money to do so or you might not be able to decide for yourself. Some think that heading right into college is the best thing that it is for you to do.

Others think that you should take a break from school for one year and think of the jobs or universities you can go to. The thing is that after you graduate from high school you don’t know what to do and if you do you don’t know-how.

Most of the options after high school are a 4 year or 2-year college, military, or work full time. Most people who graduate from high school go into a 4-year college. The other choice that people pick over others is to work full time. The other choices that are not so popular are to go into the military or attend a scientific school. “I don’t want to be a burden for my family to pay my college tuition so I’m thinking of working full time until I can pay for it,” said Lily Hoesoy.

Others are more laid back when it comes to college “I don’t know what I might do other than find a job and go with the flow,” said Harold Hughes. Despite the idea that after high school college is the best option, it isn’t for everyone. There are many options for others out there as well.
