Time flies fast, so every second counts. Most student’s think “I’ll focus on college when I’m a senior.”, “Well, all I need are good grades to get accepted.”, or ” Senior year is the most important year to focus on.”
The truth is every year is important because colleges round-up all your grades to average them out. Colleges also look at what else can you offer to their institution besides intelligence.
The college degree is soon becoming the new norm, but only 45 percent of graduates fail to graduate within six years while only one third of graduates make at least 20 percent under the income average. The graduate average as of today remains $45,327, 20 percent under turns to be $36,261 dollars annually, eliminating the assertion that college graduates make more on average than non- graduates. Though the claim is true that the workers with the largest unemployment rate goes to workers with a high school education or lower, it is largely due to employers seeing college as a screening device.
Seniors who turn in their acceptance letters and scholarship letters to the Career Center will be rewarded.
