The first year is when over 50% of your freshman drop out or quit college.
College was and still is a challenge, IMHO, but I will admit that till I got through my 'core' classes, it was pretty redundant.
I don't care about my core classes. I find all of that easy high school review stuff. But I am thinking long term.
I don't want to get out of college and get a lame 9-5 job paying 30,000 a year. To some people it's a noble thing and it's their pride and joy to work like that but I've seen my parents work like that their whole lives and I don't think I can go through that.
So I am thinking long-term, not the present.
