Should I go straight into post-secondary?

Is it recommended/better to just immediately start post-secondary right after high school? #college #university #school

Hi Calvin, The answer depends on what you plan to do if you do not directly pursue #post-secondary #education right after high school. If you know what you want to major in and you have the means to go to #college right away, then by all means, please do so! However, if you are unsure of what you want and are thinking of taking a #gap-year to do some "soul-searching" or maybe #work #full-time to save for college, then there is nothing wrong with doing that either. I advise you to "begin with the end in mind." As long as you are set to finish college no matter how many years it may take after high school, your #journey to get there is all up to you on how you want to make it work. Would going straight to college be beneficial for you since you can keep your momentum as a student? Or would you rather enjoy a bit of a break to have a refreshed mind when you start college? Good luck! Best regards, Angelica

This professional recommends the following next steps:

  • Self-reflect on how you will react to going directly to college vs. taking a gap year
  • Reflect on what options/resources are available if you go directly to college or take a break
