My parents want me to graduate a year early because of financial reasons. I pay full tuition and board at a private college and my brother does also. Since I have a lot of AP credits, I can graduate early with a major and a minor. I am also a year older than everyone else in my year (I turned 20 summer before sophomore year--long story). It makes a lot of sense to graduate early since college is very expensive for my family.
My parents would like to not only save money but also help me get started on my career. They would rather have me work [they claim they are well-networked for jobs] then experience college more.
I'm worried about several things:
1) Not having the best GPA due to less time to pull it up
2) Not getting job offers
3) At a disadvantage for going to school for only 3 years
I consider myself mature for my age and my year but I'm hesitant on graduating early.
