The goal that the author Nicolas Sollitto achieved in three life skills learned in high school was different than the college article.

However, even though high school might lack a suitable curriculum, which would prepare a future college student for the rigors of university studies, high school does teach students some valuable skills that can be used in college and beyond.” The skills that Nicolas learned in high school that he thought was valuable was social skills, time management and test taking. Although he didn’t have many skills learned there was a similarity. Time managing and prioritizing fall under the same category.
