High school students who want to go to college have plenty to be thankful for.
- The United States has the best, most coveted, and most accessible system of higher education in the world.
- There are over 2,000 four-year colleges here, and only about a hundred of them actually reject significant portions of their applicants.
- Except for about 50 schools where the competition is staggering, colleges have more space available and more need for students than ever before.
- There are billions of dollars in financial aid available.
- If you want to go to college, you almost certainly can go. The only question is where.
- Any college you attend will have virtually unlimited opportunities for you to learn, grow, discover your talents, find mentors, meet people, make memories and have more fun than you’ve ever had.
- What you do in college matters much more than the name or prestige of the college you attend does.
I’m thankful to live in a country where I can start a business I want to start, write whatever I want to write on this blog every day, work with people who want to do work that matters, and help good kids find and get accepted to the right colleges.
Thanks for reading my blog and for all your support of Collegewise.
