There are many differences between going to college and deciding not to. Some may think there are not a lot of differences and that going to college is not a very big decision to make. In reality, this is a huge important decision you have to make. It can affect you in more ways than what you think and I believe after you read this maybe you will agree with me. So hopefully, I can help you make a better decision with the differences I will be discussing. First of all, you obviously can get a higher education. I know I am stating the obvious but I don’t think people actually think about what that means.

You would be able to try and manage your money that you are making at your current place you are working. On the other hand, you will probably suffer from trying to pay your mortgage, rent, car, car insurance, electricity, etc. without your degree. So you will have to weigh out your options and decide which one is best for you and what you think you can
