Interesting next step in your transfer guide for community college students. I like the “lifeline” concept that demonstrates how community college can be a fresh start if you could have done better in high school. In fact, many community colleges have what is called a “Fresh Start” or academic forgiveness policy that actually clears a person’s college transcript (usually for 10 years ago or longer) if they didn’t do well when they started college. Up side–you can discard bad grades on a college transcript. Down-side–you have to discard good grades along with the bad. All that to say, even if you messed up your first attempt in college a long time ago, you still have a chance to clear your record.

I do have a question, though. What is your basis for the $10,000 differential between a “top” or Tier 1 university salary and a Tier 2 or 3 university? Is there research along these lines? I tend to disagree with your advice on this. Let me know how you got there.
