Lucky for you, you’re reading this post and likely other great financial publications as well. The more you educate yourself, the easier things will be.At your “B” college, if you are mediocre again, well then you are going to be stuck with mediocre opportunities.Do you really think you’re going to be able to compete with the student who gets straight A’s in high school who then gets straight A’s at Columbia for the same jobs and opportunities post graduation?There are plenty of different avenues you can take to breach that magical six figure mark.Doctors and lawyers routinely make multiple six figures.Get in any of the above schools, and enter any of the five industries I mentioned and you’ll likely make a median total pay package of 0,000 your very first year. You can attend business school at 25 or 55 and so long as you go to one of the best schools, the vast majority will make well over 0,000 a year upon graduation.
You didn’t do particularly well is school and read this post a little too late.

This post names 30 firms which employ thousands combined and there are many more firms out there which pay just as well.
