Wasim commented on Infographic on the Cost of College

Another thing to look at regarding the satisfaction students get from going to college is what they studied. A lot of college graduates look back and regret the major they ended up with. Here's an article on Regrets About College : http://economix.blogs.nytimes.com/2012/05/14/regrets-about-college/?_r=0.

Hello Eric,
The thing that stops students from getting into better ranked schools is their GPA in high school. So they go to community college for the first year of college, and transfer somewhere better their second year. It doesn't necessarily have to be the top school in the nation that they transfer to. It can be a more reputable school in that state or city. (Ex. UofH, UT, A&M)
Thanks,
Wasim

Thank you, Tamara. I've noticed more and more students enrolling in community college just for the first year and then transferring to high-ranked schools their second year.
