Episode 6: Getting a Degree vs ”Going” to College

Three questions everyone should ask before going to college, and how to look past the "all-expense-paid-vacation" marketing colleges are pitching. 

Ask an 18-year-old about their future education, and then ask a 38-year-old about their future education. What you’ll notice time and time again, is that the 18-year-old talks about where they're going to college while the 38-year-old tells you what they’re doing. Whether it's a degree, a license, or a certification, adults tend to focus on the credential. 

In today’s episode, we’re going to strip away some of the experience of romance and bring adult wisdom to the process. 

120 credits = Bachelor's degree average

The average college allows you to bring in 30-90 credits before you enroll. Always outsource as much prior (cheaper) credit in advance to the maximum allowable number.  

Colleges that guarantee acceptance of a LOT of alternative college credit: 

  1. Do I know my target occupation?  
  2. Do I need to go to graduate school? 
  3. Can I wait?
