Dear Min, Is going to college really a good idea?

Dear Min, Is going to college really a good idea? I'm not that good of a student so I'm not sure if I should even try. Maybe I should go into a trade school instead…


Hi, thank you for sharing this with me. Personally, I don’t think college is a requirement, and not getting good grades isn’t a problem either. Getting good grades and understanding the lesson are two different things. Maybe going to school isn’t your thing. Going to college or trade school is entirely up to you. If you consider studying for yourself is a luxury, and you don’t want to continue it, you can choose to attend trade school. Maybe you already have goals for your future/dream job. A Trade School will be a better choice if you factor in the cost of your studies. But if you want to pursuit knowing, then college will be the best choice. I think you should relax a bit because both college and trade school prepare graduates for your career paths.
