If I could offer any advice to those hoping to embark on an adventure in thgthge world of higher education, it would be that it is OK to wait. It is OK to take time off to work, Dave money, and explore new interests. It gives you time to applky for scholkarships, mature a little, and navigate the real world. Don't feel as though you need to have that degree in your hand at 21 years old. The rat race will wear you down. Wait a while and learn about yourself...pay attention to what gives you joy and what makes you cry. Choose to do meaningful work.
