“Where are you going to college?” If you are a junior or a senior, you have probably been asked this question dozens of times.
Like most students, you may not have decided what exactly you are going to do after high school.
Some students may be skeptical about continuing their education after high school because it is so expensive. In many cases, jobs require more than just a high school diploma.
