Making the Right College Choice: Technical, 2-Year, 4-Year
Choosing whether to attend college is one of the biggest decisions that high school students face. This book helps readers to carefully consider all of the options available after high school and to choose the educational route that is the best fit. The author covers traditional paths as well as newer trends, such as taking a "gap year" prior to college and participating in distance learning. Later chapters give a helpful overview of the application process, including researching and narrowing down schools, writing essays, and filling out applications. Emotional and financial aspects of the decision are also explored, and tips for successfully navigating familial expectations are given.
