I am a college senior and plan to graduate this spring. Near the end of my college career, I wonder whether college was worth what I paid.
On my Mormon mission, I learned to speak Spanish more proficiently than I could ever learn in college, and it only cost $10,000. The past four years of college have cost $20,000 in tuition alone.
I feel unprepared to meet the world. Isn't college supposed to prepare me to work and be proficient in something?
I've recently looked on a job board for entry-level positions; most required five years of experience. I hunger for practical instruction. My college doesn't adequately provide it.
For the next 60 years, I will be spending one-third of my time working. Education is a great thing, but I'm sick of classic literature and other useless information. Internships and apprenticeships should be a greater part of a bachelor's degree.
