While this episode was recorded before the pandemic, the information is particularly relevant today as many students and their families scramble to make alternate college plans.
Over the years, no more so than now, I've heard many parents say, "We're just going to have her go to community college because she doesn't know what she wants to do."
Changing course can often be a great choice, but there are some risks that come from opting out of the first 2 years at a 4-year college. The most important thing is to have a clear understand of both the upshots and downsides of opting for a transfer track before making your decision.
Here's the thing, though. Whether you opt to go straight to college, head into a transfer track, or defer enrollment to take a gap year, you get the most out of each experience if you know what you want to do with your life.
After 12 years in the college admissions space, I've worked with so many students who were checking the boxes to take the next steps without really understanding the Big Why behind their actions. So I've created a course to help.
The inaugural run of my live-led program, My Big Why Life, kicks off started on November 1st. I'd love to have you be a part of the journey so that you can gain clarity of purpose as you transition to adulthood.
