What is wrong with the following sentence?

Do you advise me to go to college or that I should get a job after high school?

Choices:
1. Run-on
2. Misplaced part
3. Lacks parallel parts.
4. Properly constructed sentence

Your sentence lacks parallel parts. The first part of your sentence is:

The rest of your sentence should continue the infinitive construction --"Do you advise me to ..." One way to correct it is:

"Do you advise me to go to college or GET A JOB AFTER HIGH SCHOOL?"
