There were 454 responses to this week’s Up/Down, and the vast majority of you said “YES!”

YES

87.7% (298)

NO

12.3% (56)

Consistent with last week’s survey where most of you responded you plan to be better-off than your parents, the overwhelming majority of you also believe you’ll be out of the house by the ripe old age of 30. Although this may sound like good news for parents out there, the reality is more-and-more students and young professionals are migrating back home due to the tough economy! So, if you want to be out and financially self-sufficient by 30, you had better get a good career plan together and be sure to make the most of your internship! Remember, whether your internship turns into a job or not the connections you make will be key to your next steps!
