It is the time to reconsider "the most important" choice in life-College! I saw the clarity once after college: I would not again pay over 60K per year (back in 2014) for my college degree! This is obvious to me after studying abroad in Germany. I would much rather pay € 700 than $ 60,000 for a college degree annually.
In this episode, Tracey (the Director of college counseling at Kents Hill School) and I will unfold the option of earning a college degree in Europe. The conclusion we made is simple: It is a great option! Like the trademark of Nike, I would say: "Just Do It"!
But what are the hurdles of European college admissions (e.g., Germany, the Netherlands, and Spain)? Do I need to speak the native language? If you have questions like these, this episode is made for you!
