Eldest graduates this May and the job offers are already starting to roll in. In fact, he got the offer he wanted this week at a salary that I find stunning. Got to say am feeling fabulous about the money we have paid for school over the past 9 semesters. We told him our paying for college was his inheritance, that the freedom from debt combined with a well paying job would be a better start than a check sometime down the road.

I am convinced that the 4 semesters of coop/internships he did was critical in his landing this job, in addition to funding his spending money which was very much his responsibility. Really encourage your kids to do coops.
