Friday College Town Hall

In Friday College Town Hall, we post a question about college, and you leave an answer in the comment field.

Today’s question is inspired by Lynn O’Shaughnessy’s blog, The College Solution:

Less than 50% of students who begin a PhD program leave with a degree.

How does a student know if they’re ready to make the commitment to graduate school? Should they enroll in grad school as a default move after graduation?

Have a thought or an answer? Leave a reply below.
