This is a very interesting question because the correct answer varies per person. Going to college definitely propels people in their lives because they are normally given more opportunities based on a higher level of education and networking. Although this normally is true, there are many jobs that do not need a college education to excel at. I do not think that everyone needs college to be successful, but I think that it will be easier to be highly successful in life with a higher level of education, as long as it is in reasonable means. I would highly recommend college to everyone, but I also can fully acknowledge that it isn’t necessary to everyone either. If you are seriously considering not going to college, you should consult your parents, guardians, mentors, and/or counselors because it is a serious decision that can change your life. College is one of the first decisions teenagers get to make for their adulthood, and it should not be taken lightly. Overall, weigh the positives and negatives, and make the right decision for you that will make you the happiest.
