Staying in college could determine the kind of car you drive College Life

Hi everyone:

Did you know that staying in college and graduating could affect the kind of car you drive, the kind of house you live in, and the kind of vacations you take? It’s true.

Although there are the Bill Gates of the world who never graduate, becoming drop outs, most of the folks I know have gotten their dream jobs thanks to their hard work and graduation from college.

The U.S. Census Bureau statistics support my statement. College graduates generally earn more than $1 million more over a 40 year working life than do high school graduates, and master’s degree folks generally make more than $1.4 million more than high school graduates.

This affects the kind of car they can afford to drive. It makes a difference in the house they own and where they go on vacation (do you really want to go to your mother-in-law’s house for a week or would you rather go to Hawaii? Your call.)

Don’t drop out. Stay the course. Even if you end up working in a field different from the one you planned, it will be worth it all. The U.S. Census Bureau says so.
