So true .
There is no such thing
You are asking the wrong question. Your children can have a very happy, successful life doing an apprenticeship or attending a trade school. The world will always need mechanics and plumbers. I have several family members who never went to college that make more money than I do, and I have my Masters degree. (Granted, I became a teacherâ€¦ But that one is on me ðŸ˜¬)
If so, how do you cope?
Few people actually have the genetics to be a plumber. A waist that is situated 4 inches below the top of your butt crack is not that common.
I have some advice. I have several graduate degrees, and here is what I tell parents of kids who are worried about them being employed after college.
"Tell them to be a plumber, they will never ever be out of work, and their income potential is limitless, no matter what condition our economy is in.."
One scored 98% of what? Percentile? That's not bad, but 99th is what the smart kids score, just FYI. Also, 4.0 is the GPA that you get now unless you do really poor work and get some Bs. That said, there are some excellent religious schools that will take your kids.

My kids have 3.95 GPAs in engineering and chemistry. And one scored 98% in the MCATs. So take that you right-wing climate-denying head up hour a__ motherfkkers.
True. Big Ten schools like Penn State and Ohio State are open admission, so your kid can't really be too dumb to attend.
Huh? You should see some of the knuckle-draggers at the public State Schools in Pennsylvania.
Unless your kid has Down Syndrome, he/she is in. I've even met some high-functioning Down Syndrome kids that could perform better academically than some of the idiots I see at these so-called "learning institutions".
