Go to a trade school. You will learn a marketable skill in areas that have a demand.

College degrees these days don't mean much. And you incur a huge debt. This coming from a college grad.

My degree has served me well, but I got it in 1973 and had $4000 in student loan debt. Times were different then. You'd get out of school and get hired in a week.

These days kids gradate with $50000-$120000 in debt and can't find a job. Mechanics, plumbers, electricians and IT guys are all doing well.
