My blog discusses the important and complex subjects of college completion, college success, student risk factors (for failing), college readiness, and academic preparation. I will explore the pieces of the college puzzle that heavily influence, if not determine, college success rates.
Should I go To College?
Some students decide to go to college without knowing much about what they are getting into when they arrive. Studies by the US Department of Education demonstrate that students are more likely to complete college if they go soon after high school. But the right time to go may depend on other factors such as lack of time to study because of work and family obligations. Moreover, lack of academic preparation may be crucial, and some increase in basic skills should precede college. Time management becomes crucial for college success as well as affordability.
In sum, there are a lot of interacting facors to answer the question of this blog. Fortunately, there are tools to help students analyse and understand the many factors for college success.
