A college education of any kind, regardless of the school you choose, can be a wonderful investment in your future. Or it can be a complete waste of time. Like any sound investment strategy, it depends on how wisely people spend their money.
Too often these days, young people use college admissions as a high-priced form of competition, a race to see who can get into the most schools and who can get into the top-ranked and most expensive schools in the nation. And to me, as someone who has advised people how to invest their money for more than three decades, that doesn’t make much sense.
