Guidance counselors constantly encourage students throughout high school to make plans for what comes next.

However, when senior year rolls around, I find it can be an extremely stressful time for those that weren’t prepared.

For those like me that didn’t magically find their calling in high school, extra time to decide and make the transition is not really an option.

I find that gap years aren’t really a viable course of action, mostly because of high costs of travel and pressures by family for students to start their own lives.

Most students end up following the path they know best, which is school.

All they can do then is just hope that they find their niche in their freshman year of college.

But this can be a dangerous decision, considering the vast number of students who drop out of college freshmen year after finding that post secondary schooling is not an accurate fit.

Students shouldn’t be put under so much pressure the moment they graduate high school.

Rather they should be given ample opportunity to reflect on their achievements and decide what’s best for themselves going forward.
