College achievement

Data piece: 50% of those entering college for a degree don't make it.

  1. That's disturbing, but at the same time, not surprising. It's actually scary when you picture sitting in a classroom and half those people won't make it. At the same time, though, it's actually impressive that half the people do. I know I went to Catholic school and we had like a 98% rate of those going on to college. And it really seems like they did (I waited, and kinda watched also) I think almost all my friends dropped out, did not finish, and work normal jobs now. Getting back in touch with the seems about 50/50. But so many wait these days, being non-traditional students, getting motivation later. So I wonder, is that 50% that "make it" is it less of the teens right out of high school? Interesting.
