Is the bachelors going to benefit the police career? Seems like an awful steep price to pay as a back up plan. Especially considering the "once in a lifetime" social aspect of college will very likely be lost on a fresh faced sixteen year old commuter like yourself (no offense). College tuition is an investment like anything else, so make sure it's gonna pay off.
