Geez my kids make twice that, after completing junior college then transferring to a 4 year school.
HUGS it gets better.
I'm one of the fortunate ones, who've majored in something useful, and found a niche that pays for my knowledge.
For many others, including the author of that postcard, higher education is no longer paying off. The education bubble is popping.
It matters what that BS was in.
It really does.
indeed. you are wasting your time if you aren't in science / engineering.

My boy is talking about wanting a psych degree.
I am encouraging him to do private industry for a year before college. He can meet lots of folks with psych degrees when working at McDonalds.
if he truly has a passion for it, than tell him to minor in it, will look good on a resume, he will learn quite a bit of it, and his actual degree can be in something useful. getting a minor is actually pretty easy over 4 years as you can simply use all your free elective hours towards the minor you want
Thanks, that sounds very constructive.
I want him to get a major in electrical engineering. He has no interest in that.
But getting a financial accounting degree might be useful with a psych minor.
