Illinois School Lands on ‘Top College to Avoid’ List
Where did you go to college?
Once upon a time I was a junior in high school and had to start applying for colleges. I will tell you, it was a weird year.
I spent most of my childhood wanting to get an A+ in every class I took and school came easily to me.
However, once I started taking AP classes in high school, easy wasn't so easy anymore. That's when I started getting really stressed out and then when I started applying for schools and didn't get into my top choice, Northwestern University, basically just told my parents I wasn't going.
Eventually I did go to college, I went to Drake University in Des Moines, Iowa, but it just wasn't the same as what I thought it would be like to go to my dream school.
Neither one of those schools made the 'Top Colleges to Avoid in America,' list, but there is a school nearby that landed in this slideshow.
Apparently we should not go to the 'School of the Art Institute of Chicago.'
Four years here will set you back a whopping $230,000 – and the return of the investment is pretty dismal. In fact, after 20 years of work, an average student will still find themselves $25,000 in the minus.
That doesn't sound so wonderful.
