So … you’re thinking of dropping out of college? The first thing I’ll say is this: it’s okay. I’m sure you know this in theory. You’ve probably heard the “college is not for everyone” adage that’s thrown around all over college campuses and beyond.
“College is not for everyone” is often the consolation remark when someone resigns to just not cutting it, not having what it takes, or not being able to afford the wildly high price tag of a college education. But maybe it is not the student who is the wrong match for college, but that college is a bad match for many people.
