    I think that school life easier then college.When you are in school you want to go to college.
    When you are in college you don't know what to do after.

    For most kids, college represents many firsts: independence, exploration, etc. But it also represents a transition from set path (the next expected thing) to choices and uncertainty. You don't need to know what's next right away, but over the four yrs you'll develop some interests that guide you. There is generally a lot of support on campus (career center, counselors, etc.) that can help you find your path.

    Depending on area of study, there are natural career paths with ample recruiting. So some of it is just following the path. Other areas of study require more creativity.

    At the end of the day, this is an exciting time for personal growth and to start doing things because you want to, not simply because of other's expectations.

    In school you are basically considered a child. In college, you are a young adult, usually a dependent one but still an adult. It is a time to grow and take on more responsibilities toward being a fully independent adult. As high school students, my kiddos would sometimes wish they could go back to the easy of elementary school. But they see that college life has the freedom granted to adults. Adults make choices, suffer consequences, and plan for long term rewards.
