In 2011 for the first time American women have surpassed men in gaining advanced college degrees as well as bachelor's degrees. But in 2013 it was reported that many women with top degrees stay home. 60 percent of women who have a bachelor's degree from prestigious institutions work full time. Among married mothers who earned degrees at top-tier schools only a third of them have full-time jobs. Are women with higher education wasting their degree? Keli Goff argued that a woman who obtains an elite education has an obligation to use it pursuing a high-power career outside the home. "That degree could have gone to a woman who does want to spend her entire life using it to advance the cause of women not simply advancing the lives of her own family at home, which is a noble cause, but not one requiring an elite degree."  On the other hand, the answer is different if the women who stay at home dedicate themselves to volunteer, civic, and educational organization in their communities, and later re-enter the workforce after their children have entered school. Well, the joy of motherhood can compensate for the loss of achievement that women have built up. However, when women with degrees decide to stay home, they often struggle with the guilt of having unnecessarily competed against others that could have better utilized their degrees. Furthermore there is no guarantee that women with elite education raise their children to be intelligent and confident leaders. For the next few weeks, students and parents may feel the anxiousness of the college decisions. The situation has been getting worse since most colleges renewed the record high rate in competition every year. Now it is the time to discuss the purpose of an education and its cost before investing the time and money.
