Vocational Colleges

Vocational Colleges

While I think that these places can be a mistake for people who just aren't ready for college (our culture has transformed going to college into a matter of when and does not ask students to consider whether they are ready for college or even right for college, that's my two-cents), I think that they can be fine places for people who are looking for a different career, are settled to a career and need a degree for a promotion, or people who don't think they want to go get a liberal arts degree and have a very set goal in mind like being a dental assistant. Before signing up for a semester with a vocational college though, bear in mind that while some of these places are great resources to get an education, I've heard that others will sign you up for the benefit of collecting the loan funds that you will have to pay to enroll. So do your research when it comes to enrolling at a vocational college. So-called admissions counselors are more salespeople and may try to pressure you by giving you statistics about how all their students find jobs within 6 months or something like that. Like the previous entry on statistics--they can be manipulated. Try to do research online or speak to current students.
