As we near graduation, you may be trying to decide what to do next. Some of our students have jobs lined up. Some of you may have applied to a trade school or college. Some may still be figuring out what the future holds after graduation. If you are one of the lucky students that got accepted to a couple of different schools that you applied to, you might be wondering how you are supposed to decide which one to choose.
Trade school and college is an exciting time in your life. You’ll not only learn valuable skills that will earn you big bucks in the future, but you’ll also transition into adulthood during this time. Choosing which college or trade school you’ll go to is serious business. There are a few things to consider when making your decision:
- Think about the cost. Did you get scholarships? Are you able to afford the tuition?
- How close it is to your house? Are you able to still live at home while you go to school or will you need to get an apartment or other housing while there?
- Is it within reasonable distance from your current job or will you need to find another job to meet your living expenses and other obligations?
- Will you be happy if you graduate with the certain skillset or trade that the school specializes in?
- How quickly will you complete school?
- Will you have any friends there?
There is a lot to think about when making your final decision on which school to attend after you earn your high school diploma. Make sure that you notify the school of your choice and send in anything that they require by the deadline that they set. Keep your eye on the prize and you will have a bright, successful future!
