Is Going to College Worth It?

Is Going to College a Good Idea?

With tuition fees on the rise, many have debated if going to college is worth the expense.

A Bucks blog piece recently highlighted several important considerations high school students should think about before heading off to college. This includes choosing a "real-life" education by working instead of studying for four years at a university, taking a gap year before entering undergrad to work or volunteer, and figuring out who should foot the school tuition bills. Those are all great pieces of advice, and should definitely be discussed prior to making the decision to attend college.

Personally, I had a really good experience at college and feel that higher education has really helped me attain my dream career path. What about you — do you think college is worth the expense?
