What interests do you have in college studies?
Why would anyone head off to college, incur the big expense, and not have a well-defined plan for study?
I don't know why people would, but I do know why people do. It's just a lot easier that way. Parents are too busy in their own life to sit down and spend the time with their child for mapping their college plan.
No, I'm not saying that kids need to know at age 17 what job they want for the rest of their life...of course not! But I am saying that a path to college and life success includes having:
- a vision for the future
- a plan for their role
- an interest in a particular field of study or profession
- specific knowledge in that field of interest
- the ability to express it all
I ask you, is it an unreasonable request to spend considerable time in developing this in considering the magnitude of college expense and outcomes?
More than ever, colleges desire students having a vision, a plan, an interest, knowledge and awareness, and most of all, the ability to express it with passion and desire. Colleges will award students who can do this effectively with higher rates of acceptances and larger scholarships. It's that simple, yet that elusive.
