What are Your Plans? (Post #16)

Here is a survey of the economic terrain just three months before you graduate from high school:

The national unemployment rate dropped to 8.9% last week.

The California legislature increased community college costs $10 a unit, making a 12 unit semester cost $432 dollars. Costs and four-year colleges are escalating as well.

While the military offers various opportunities, you are obligated to serve for a specific amount of time and you may be sent to one of the several active war zones.

For profit private institutions such as Heald and DeVry are very expensive and have been under scrutiny by the federal government.

To summarize: the employment outlook may be improving while college costs continue to rise. The military, as usual, provides some opportunities but it also controls your time. What route do you see yourself taking and why? What are the opportunity costs and trade offs of your decision?

Where will you be one year from now?

  1. i believe in one year from now, i will be on a community college and playing baseball. i want to go to college and stay in college and get a degree in criminal justice. this can take away time from hanging out with friends and having fun, but its all worth it in the end. when im older and i have a successful life. i plan on working hard at my oppurtunities and succeeding in life.

  2. I would like to attend the United States Air Force Academy in Colorado Springs. If I am accepted there, a year from now I would be declaring my major and beginning to plan how to spend my five year service commitment. The pros of the academy include but are not limited to a $400,000+ education for free, the opportunity to travel the world and learn new things (like skydiving and flying) at no cost, a guaranteed job out of college, and not having to pick out outfits for the next nine years :)

  3. My next chapter in life will take me to Oregon, where I will be spending the next 4 years at Willamette University which is a private college in the heart of Salem. While there, I will take courses to earn a bachelor's degree in exercise science that will contribute towards my goal of becoming a physical therapist. I will also be playing Division III football for Willamette!

  4. I see myself attending a UC or a private university and getting a degree in engineering. Although tuition is rising, nothing can beat a college degree and there is plenty of opportunity for engineers to land solid jobs right out of college. If I attend a private university I am probably going to need loans, but I believe that a degree from an established university makes it more likely to get a solid job that will allow me to pay off any debts within a few years of graduating (providing I live frugally). The military is great and an education at a college such as West Point is definitely top notch, but I think that my freedom of choice as to where to live and when to move for up to 5 years is too much to give up.

    one year from now i see myself at a four year college working for a degree in accounting or trying to become a physical therapist. i know that the college tuition is rising but with a degree in your hands, a lot of businesses wont pass you up. i have great respect for every person who enters the military, but i do not want to enter it. i want to stay and get a degree so i can start my own family and provide for them. if i attend a four year college then i will be losing a lot of spare time in my days. i wont be able to hang out with friends or go see family, but in the end, its all worth it.

  6. My plans for after highschool is to go down to San Diego with my sister and start my life down there. I plan to go to college down south if I don't get into UC Davis. But if I do get into UC Davis then I may stay here. I have a lot of decisions to make really soon that will determine where I end up.

  9. Since i am ineligible to join the marines, my route stays the same. I plan to go to a community college, and maintain a job. I plan to get my Bachelors degree majoring in kinesiology, while getting certified as a personal trainer under a gym, and in the future, hopefully being a free lance personal trainer. i do not really have any trade offs, i cant join the military because of medical reasons, so my path is set, and i am content with it. In one year i can see myself going to college, working part time, and possibly moving out.

  10. I have many open plans. The entire rest of my life depends on the next four years, to get through the next four years i need A LOT of government support. With the way the government is raising prices for college im even traveling outside of california who seems to be recovering quite slowly. I was acepted to two different colleges out of state and that is where i will spend my next four years. With my financial situation i have thought about military service, but it is greatly agreed upon that with the condition, stress disorder, i have military servie is not an option. So i plan to be a citizen for a very long time.

  11. My plans for after high school are to attend a college and get a job to help pay for all the expenses. I hopefully will be attending UC Davis, if not i may choose to go to one of the calpolys or a jc to save money and then transfer. Even though it is difficult to find a job, I need to make money to help pay for college and start to get off on my own feet. In one year i may be out living in a dorm or possibly at home, attending college , working , and getting by in life. Sloan p.3

  14. i'll be going to BYU in the fall. i want to get a degree in music, then go to medical school to become a doctor. BYU doesn't mind most of its male students leaving for 2 years at a time when they turn 19, they are very accommodating in fact. i think it'd be fun to be a surgeon. i'll probably give beginner's piano lessons along with FAFSA and scholarships.

  17. I'm attending community college first and then transferring to a four-year college. I was planning to go to the air force but I was really hesitant. I know I won't be saving as much money as previous community college students and I'm going to have to pay back some money. But it won't be too much, which is good. I'm hoping fafsa, cal grant, and other scholarships will help me with my schooling. I'm still undecided on my major because I'm interested in many majors. One year from now, I'll still be at the community college with one year left. I'm looking forward to my future.

  18. Wow, this must be the "let's depress Sasha question".

    I hope to be at CalArts a year from now, but that all depends on if I got in. While art school is different from university, we all had to work our tails off in different ways to ready our applications, with slim chances of acceptance. If I don't get in, well, I could go to a far less appealing back up school, or wait a year and apply again after taking a year at a JC (though, with art school, that won't change the fact that I must spend 4 years at CalArts, no matter how many credits I get out of the way first), while working, and then go there......if I get in the second time.
    Ah, gosh, now I'm freaking out again.

  21. This upcoming fall I hope to see my self attending a UC, preferably UC Berkeley. If all else fails I am already admitted to UC Davis. I want to major in Bioengineer and maybe minor in art. I never saw military as an option, so the trade off there are all the money benefits. I have been applying for scholarships and hope that fafsa and other grants are enough to help me pay off college. I also don't plan to work while attending college, but that might change if the economy worsens.

    One year from now I see myself attending a four year university and possibly working my way towards a bachelor's degree in Architecture. I have been accepted to both state and private schools, but my decision will ultimately be based on money. Hopefully I can get scholarships and grants, but if not, I will be at a community college for two years and then I will transfer. Money is a big issue these days, but like Caleb said, if someone gets a quality education and is able to land a good job, paying off debts shouldn't be a burden for too long after we graduate from college.

    Honestly military is the best choice but for me being away from how would be to hard for me so I'm probably not going to do that however, yes going to the military could be every dangerous but if your going to die you will die in war or even being here you never know what happens next in your life so it pretty hard to say what im doing after high school but so far plans are to go to collage and waste lots of money and try to become a nurse.

    I've never thought about getting a job, sure it would be nice to have a little extra money here and there, but after watching friends and others struggle to find work, what chances do I have? My parents have also never pressured me to look for work because they've always been able to give me money whenever I needed it. However, maybe if the job outlook gets better, its something I'd consider. This summer I will be attending the Art Institute of Sacramento, tuition is $24,000 a year and they only way I'd be able to afford it is if I apply for billions scholarships, grants, and loans - just a huge pain in the butt, but in the end it will all be worth it.

After receiving my Bachelor's degree, I plan to continue on with my schooling and eventually get my Master's. While in school, I plan to get a job to help pay for food, insurance, gas and an apartment. I have no desire to join the military, partially because I know that I am just not cut out for it.

I plan to attend CRC for 2 years and transfer to a University to study law or Pschology I then will continue to study until I recieve my masters degree. While in school I also tend to work to pay off my tutition and other personal expenses. I hope to become succesful to have the chance to enjoy life the right and fun way :D

  36. In a year, I see myself in community college, studying to be a nurses assistant, as well as taking some kind of theatre classes here and there. I also have to be reastic in the money department. Because I will be paying for college strictly by myself, I'll have to hold some kind of waitressing job in order to keep a roof over my head. I'm relying on grants and scholarships to pay for college. Im also lucky enough to be Native American and I'm registered as an official member of my tribe. Some of the rewards include money for college, its also pretty cool that my tribe will pay for any type of uniform and or tools I may need for a job. Hopefully this is a possibility, since tax cuts have affected how much money my tribe gets. I hope to see myself as succesful and content, as well as independent.

    I'm not sure what I want to do after high school yet. My original plan was attend a community college then transfer to a university. I really don't like school though and I'm not patient so I'm not sure how that might work out.

Whatever I decide will obviously affect my social life, since I'll be focusing on school more.

  51. My current plans for after graduation are to attend a 4 year university for a degree in animation. I don't see my life taking any other course. Since pre-school my parents and my education environment have encouraged me to go to college after high school for various reasons (higher salary, safe route, etc.) I couldn't imagine myself joining the military. I pride those who sign up and serve in any type of base, but that is not the lifestyle for me. I also could not see myself graduating high school and going straight into work. My parents are providing the financial support I need to go to a university, & so I plan to take advantage of that support.

I plan to study psychology while i am there and in a year i see my self with a part time job and going to school at Sac State working towards my bachelors degree. the opportunity cost of this are that the money i will use to go to college i could save and go into the military instead saving much more money but also having to risk my life.

Although it may be difficult a job I actually want within a year since Carrington recommends that their students don't work during enrollment.

I will be at either Cal State Long Beach or Northern Arizona University(fingers crossed for Northridge too) studying to get my bachelors degree in economics. I don't think we can plan our lives out exactly how we want them to be, but getting a college degree is really the first step, even with inflating tuition prices.

It is the first step towards med school and gets my foot in the doorway of the medical field. Opportunity costs are low here, everything is falling perfectly in place. Also, I hope to join a DCI drum corps as well.

    One year from now I will be on a college campus in Alabama, Tennessee, or Pennsylvania where the economy is much better. I will find a job on campus or nearby and am not to worried about my monetary funds. California is in the toilet with its economy, luckily I wont be here much longer

  74. As has been the plan since I was old enough to know better, my family has instilled in me the importance of education. As i have continued to grow I have been able to see first hand the importance of education. For this reason I am sticking to the plan and persuing aducation even after high schhool. I will go to a four year and after that grad school. Before its all said and done I plan to get my Masters or Doctorate. It is key especially in these troubled times to have the most and best education you can. There aren't very many mediochre jobs, however i'm sure that there are corporate level careers that aren't being filled simply because peolple lack the education reqhired to fulfill these positions. Yes education is becoming more and more expensive, however in the long run it will pay for itself.

    I plan to be in college, one year from now. I'm not sure which college I am going to yet, but hopefully it is a good one. I will also try to find a job, so that I can pay of some of the tuition.

  79. One year from now I'll be living in Seaside and attending csu monterey bay. Yeah costs are going up, but hey my parents are willing to pay for it when we discussed everything. If all goes well the first year, I'll be there until I finish school. If it doesn't, then I'll come back home to Galt and it'll suck. The opportunity cost will be going to a junior college for a lot less.

  81. I am planning on going to cosumnes river college where i will take all my general ed to get my bachlors degree then transfer to the university of my choice. Knowing that each class is now 10 dollers per unit makes it difficult on us studenst because we only get so much on fininancial aid. I think the government should stop making cuts on education.

    One year from now I will be attending a four year university along the California coast working towards a degree in sociology, or another social science. I plan to be the first in my family to attend a university. Although the cost of tuituon is ridiculous, my parents and I see this as an investment.

    In a year from now, I will be attending a junior college while working at the same time. I think it is smarter to go to a junior college rather than a University while not having a clue what you want to do in order to save a lot more money. Hopefully while I'm there at a JC I will figure out what I want to do with my life and go from there. But I most definitely won't go into the army, too many family members have done that and I wouldn't like it.

  85. I believe that one year from now, I will most likely be in some sort of college, yet at the same time, teaching myself some foreign languages and working on my writing and art work independently. I think that I probably would pursue a career that does not require college, but it would help to have extra knowledge. I'd like to attend a college and maybe study Japanese, or take some classes on art and creative writing, so that I have an option on what career choices I can work with in the future. I think that to those who college is important to, it will never really lose its worth.

    In a year from now, i am going to be in a community college for 2 years and then transfer to a 4 year university. With this plan that I have for me after graduation, is to save money, and gaining experience. That way it becomes easier for me to accomplish my goals, and become a psychologist with more success.

  90. I believe that I will go to community college for 2 years so that I can get my general education done for a cheaper price. Then I plan to transfer to a 4 year. The prices for college are going up, but when arent they? This is going to continue to happen and has been happening since we have been alive. I still believe college is the best way to go because it provides you with the tools needed to obtain the career of your choice.

  96. One year from now, I will be at Cal Poly San Luis Obispo, probably cramming for some test or other. I feel that the money spent (though it will surely be a lot) and the student loans I may have to take out will be well worth the education and invaluable experience going away to college will bring. I will also work on or off campus to help pay for college.

    My plan for the future is to stay in the area (whether moved out or not) and go to community college while still holding my part time job. I chose this route because, for one, of course it'll save money by attending the least expensive school for as long as possible and not having to pay room and board. Additionally, I am still undecided on a major so I don't want to waste more money than I have to on units if I end up changing my plans. For two, I have family-related reasons that I'd like to stay in the area instead of going off to a four-year college or the military. Regarding employment, I enjoy not having to ask my parents for money all the time and actually being able to somewhat contribute to things so I don't see me quitting my job any time soon. For the reasons stated, I see community college and work in my future.

  100. I would rather have a job, and pay my way through college. The military does offer many opportunities also including the help with financial needs. The only problem with that is that I have to give up a certain amount of my life to go and fight in a war. There are mNy things that can happen in a war zone. I could loose my life. I would much rather feel the physical hardships of working to pay for college than loosing my life. My opportunity cost is my life.

  101. As i look towards the future, I see myself attending Sac State where I will be furthering my education in becoming a lawyer. I haven't decided on which law school I will attend, but overall it should be an acceptable one. College tuition is alot these days, but with the aid of student loans and grants, I believe that I can truly experience the great oppurtunity of attending Sac State.

  102. After high school, I plan to attend Delta College for two years to get my general education. From there, I plan to transfer to Sacramento State to receive a Bachelors of Science degree. I much rather have to pay for college and be able to get a good job than risk my life fighting for my country. I’m not the fighting type of girl, so the military wouldn’t be a good choice for me.

  104. I still see myself going to a community college (CRC) and getting my general education out of the way, and then going to a university and doing my major. I don't really see any trade-offs or anything since that's just about the best option possible at this time. In one year, I see myself in CRC worrying about all my classes I'm taking in there and trying to get my homework done and possibly having a work to help pay for college.

    My plans after high school is to go to college or the university yet because of the rising cost it will be hard. Yet the cost would be to gain an education and have a better job opportunity. yet there can be a negative effect and i could be left with a degree in a nation that has a lot of unemployment and a be left debt. But as soon as i graduate i plan to move and hopefully get a part time job.

  106. I will be taking the college route. I realize that tuition is rising, however, there are many options to save and borrow money. I will most likely pay for most of my tuition. Rack up a huge bill pay later. The cost of education is far less than not attending at all. I love food and business so i will be combining the two when choosing my career. Architectural engineering is another career I would like to pursue.

  119. To me it seems like the government is trying to get more people to be involved in the military if they are offered so many options when trying to decide on college when most people have to pay a lot of money to go to school. I believe it is fair for the men and women serving in the military get free schooling but i don't believe things should be made harder on those who don't choose to serve.
