Insights

All college instructors aren’t hard pass, I constantly heard this from teachers in high school.

You don’t really need to go to college for a lot focuses. (in a lot of cases, not ALL cases)

Lastly, if you don’t know what to do or you don’t have a focus and you graduate high school, go to a junior college or community college to figure it out before spending thousands. (Already knew this one and did it. Just thought it was a good thing to pass on)

Other Advice/Information

If you don’t know what to do or you don’t have a focus and you graduate high school, go to a junior college or community college to figure it out before spending thousands.

If you have a passion that you want to change into a career and it doesn’t require going to college. Don’t go to college, its too expensive nowadays. You’ll likely be in less debt and you can start making money earlier.
