A college education is expensive and a career is a long term committment. Don't spend that money or let your child spend his time in a career that is not suited to his talents and temperament.
If your child receives awesome guidance and assessment through his high school guidance office, wonderful. Chances are though, that he may not be getting the time or quality of assistance needed to make college major decisions.
If your child is not getting the kind of support needed, it is worth the price and time it takes to complete a good assessment and evaluation in preparation for a very important decision. Getting started in the right field early can save thousands
of dollars and several years of college.
