(Don't go to college unless you legitimately have a passion/calling/connection with your concentration of study. If you don't you'll end up like myself with a degree and no "grown up", big boy job. Also consider at least one school in NY offers rock climbing (I dont think the degrees name is simply rock climbing...) as a bachelors. No joke.

Follow happiness and balance and don't force higher education on yourself just because everyone else does. College doesn't mean you'll end up with a good life partner, will improve at all in climbing, will make any significant sum of money, will bring happiness or your kids will turn out "good")
