Don't be a fool, stay in school

Ok, quick post this week but one that I really think is important.  Time Magazine ran an article a few weeks back discussing if going to college is worth it or not...well, it is.  Seriously, no brainer.  Here’s why:

Earnings - Look at the middle chart.  College grads earn more than High School grads.  Period.  It’s easy to complain about college debt, it sucks but if you graduate with say $30K in debt....yes it blows but over time the investment will pay off.

Long Game - I talk a lot about networking and all that is the same idea.  It’s about the long game.  You won’t see immediate “results” from your degree for many years...even a decade or two.  Getting your degree is not fun while you are doing it but over the long haul it’s all good.

Networks - The other thing about college is the network you acquire.  You won’t read about this in the college brochure but it’s true.  Having a degree from Harvard...makes you a Harvard alumni and you know what?  Alumni take care of themselves.  You can’t put a “value” on it but trust me...the network you get from your college experience will be worth way more than your tuition.

Until next time...remember...don’t be a fool, stay in school
