I asked my 16 year old niece about what she thought of college as she seems on the kind of track where it would be an obvious post-high school choice. She indicated that she wanted to go, but wasn't 100% sure what she would want to study and would likely choose "Psychology" (which I told her just please, don't).

I inquired what she thought college was for: "To prepare you for a job." So then I told her about trade schools as that is the explicit purpose of those schools -- not universities. Having just finishing up the process myself, I wouldn't want her to go to college right out of high school as she would end up in debt with a degree that very likely is not going to help her with a job search.
