Do you feel your higher education (college, university, grad school, etc.) was worth it?
As a senior in high school, the question I am more frequently asked (the nearer graduation gets) "what are your plans for the future?", followed by cautionary tales of do's and don't's that consistently slash any illusion of comfort but instead instill anxiety. I want to go to university in the worst way, but having to answer this question calls for much self-examination. How can I know it won't be a waste? How much of the end product is brought about by chance? The financial burden and pressure for an economic choice in major is enough to cripple any young person. Do you regret your mode of education? If so, why?
