If the only reason you are going to college is better money, you are going for the wrong reason. Plumbers and electricians can make 50k-100k per year.
I know people that go to college for 4 years and are in hock not only for the 100K the had to burrow, but also the lost wages for those 4 years, and then get a mediocre job.
If you want to teach, great, but what are they paying 30-50K (in Wisconsin, thanks to Walker), but there are some bus drivers in Madison that made 100K per year, with no college.
I also know of commercial pilots that only make 30K-50K, after investing 50K-100K in training.
Nurses that make the same as above, with the same or more of an investment.
Now if that's what you dream job is great, then your happy. But don't buy in that the only way to make money is through college. It's a sell job
