By Degree Jungle Is College Still Worth It
What I found most interesting is the section at the bottom: Things college grads say. Roughly half of all grads had some regret about their major and not finding an internship while in school. Also, 75% of grads said they would do something different if they could do it over again. Wow. I’m sure plenty of people would say the same about a lot of times in their life, but college is such a critical time. Students are asked to make some big decisions at a young age, when they may not quite know what’s best for them yet.
Do you think college is worth it? Do you have any regrets about that time in your life?
