WE HAVE TO MAKE DECISIONS NOW!?!?: Yeah, it’s a scary thought for some of you that decision-making is primarily going to be all on you and the outcomes of these decisions will fall on your shoulders. I don’t tell you this to scare you. Not my intention. I tell you this because the outcome of your decisions will fall on you, so make the best decision you can.

Notice I did not say right decision. Who knows if it the right decision until you make it, right? I make plenty of bad decisions, but I learn from them and it builds my character to be better next time and not make those kind of decisions.

The best way to make the right decision is the have as much information about your choices as you can. There is no exception when it comes to colleges and careers. You don’t have to spend a lot of time on this, but take it seriously, and make your own decision.

It’s a lot more fun to reap the GOOD rewards from your awesome decisions!!

It’s tough to make the right choice in colleges or universities, especially at your age. Up until now mom and dad, or your teachers, guardians, counselors…have made a lot of decisions for you, or helped you along the way.

THIS IS THE TIME: This for you to seriously consider what your interests are in selecting a college. Think about…or make a list of what main things you are looking for in a school of higher education (after high school).

Remember that there are four main types of higher education institutions:                                                                                                                                                            *Vocational schools that teach specific technical/Career specific  degrees                                                                                                                                                                                                           *Public institutions like state universities and colleges                                                                                                      *Community/junior colleges                                                                                                                                                            *Private colleges
