It's important to do your research about colleges. My favorite statistics to check for any college include:
What percent of students actually graduate in 4 years
What is the average amount of debt per student
What percent of students are employed after they graduate
What percent get admitted to graduate schools?
It's amazing what you can learn when you read the fine print. We found a college where only 50 percent of kids graduated WITHIN SIX YEARS! Can you imagine half the parents paying for TWO WHOLE YEARS EXTRA??? I was shocked!
Learn more about how to evaluate colleges in "Finding a College" on DVD. And when you are doing your research, remember to look at the fine print!
