There are pros and cons to each path taken after high school, including the military. The military can be the perfect choice for individuals uncertain of what they want to do in the future. One should carefully explore the lifestyle of having a military career because it is most certainly not for everyone.

There are so many choices to make out of high school and it can be very difficult for students. Taking time off is a valid option which many view as a bad decision. This time off can be a good time to sort things out and decide on what is best for you.

A degree is a very good piece of education that can become of great value to someone looking for a job. Though a job can be acquired without one, a degree may make it easier to land a well paying job, depending on what the job and the degree is. It all comes back to the base of what is right for an individual.

There are a number of people who became successful without the help of a college degree in hand. These millionaires left the degree behind and worked towards their future success. Bill Gates who was at one point the richest individual in the world dropped out of college to build his own company. Steve Jobs who dropped out of Reed College later became the co-founder of Apple. Halle Berry also dropped out and moved to Manhattan to pursue her own career in theater.

Steven Speilberg, another well-known millionaire, dropped out of California State University Long Beach to later become a famous successful movie director. Simon Cowell dropped out of Dover College and continued on to find himself on American Idol as a judge making millions. Going to college really comes down to who the person is individually. Depending on your talents you may be eligible to skip out on college.

If one were to graduate from college, on average the person would have a large financial debt. It becomes a big burden to the students once they have to start paying the bills. "Experts estimate that up to 25% of student loan borrowers are delinquent right now." This is a problem because this is when someone has not paid their most recent bill. Several issues can arise through having financial debt. The possibilities of deferment, forbearance, and default.

When contemplating which path is the best path, one may want to look at future salaries. Studies show that students that have a job that requires a four year degree average about $37,750 and those who have a job where a four year degree is not a prerequisite average about $32,500 a year. This may seem obvious what is the better path, but one must be successful in college to obtain this status, also they will graduate with a debt.

When deciding on what truly is the best path to take after high school, there are some things students need to look at. There are several bad reasons why teens will choice college out of high school. For example, "because everyone else I know is going it." This reason is just peer pressure, people feel an obligation to attend college because "everyone" goes after high school; it is the "next step." Going to college because others are expecting you to is dangerous because you have to want to be there or you will not like it. It is not fair to be forced into something you do not want to do.

More poor reasons students claim why they are attending college include the following: it just might seem like a good idea or if you decide that you want to party. If you do not know what to do with your life, do not just decide to go to college because you have nothing else. Why not try working for a year until you know what you want. It is not smart spend a fortune on something you do not know you want to do.
