What About Entrance Exams?

What
about them? Some people are good at taking tests, some aren’t. If your child
isn’t there are options. One is to take classes to learn test-taking skills.
Another is to attend community college first. This option has a lot going for
it: no entrance exam, ease into college, try things out while deciding on a
major, etc., etc.

 

This
is not “taking the easy way out” because you’re “too lazy to go to a real
college.” Whatever helps a particular student be successful is right for that
student.

 

Most
community colleges are excellent and provide a wonderful education.

 

But
what about getting the best jobs? Will opportunities be missed by taking this
route? Stay tuned…
