About This Quiz

College used to be the ideal path of choice for starting a career, creating wealth and finding a future to impress your friends and family members. Nowadays, people are beginning to develop their paths through other means, such as blogging and creating startup companies. 

If you are thinking about going to college, remember there are a wide variety of colleges to choose from. Of course, one of the biggest obstacles adults face when it comes to college is tuition costs. Yearly costs for colleges can range from under $5,000, all the way up to $100,000. If you're super smart (or very lucky), you might be able to attend college for free through various types of scholarships.

If you're undecided about a college, don't worry, because many people are in the same boat as you.
