    Why did you choose community college?

    What was your primary reason for choosing to start post secondary education at a community/junior college?

    My PRIMARY reason for going to a 4 year school is because my family isn't too rich.My secondary reason for choosing CC was because I was confused about a career after getting out of high school and quite frankly,I still am.

    The first two years in CC or univ is the same. Same ingridients. Everything's the same. But did I got accepted at Univ.? Nope. I was relatively too dumb LOL. I got F score on my SAT and my GPA. But seriously, it ain't that important. My 2 friends got droped out of high school and never took SAT, and they're still going to college. They can go to Univ. right now if they wanted to

    Your excellent grades and SAT scores aren't the only weapon you can use to get into Univ . I should have just phucked around in high school, don't take SAT at all. Still would have meet with the same fate.

    It's not even an option for me to drop out of school.I can't because of where I'm from.The next step WAS to transfer(Southern A&M) but I'm reconsidering that.

    LOL! Makes you wonder doesn't it?

    I was going to include "distance" as a factor as well, but apparently waited too long before trying to add another option.

    I spent a year at CC after I spent the previous year at a small private university. Wasn't happy at the first school, wanted to change majors and transfer to a larger public university, saw CC as the perfect opportunity to try out my new major in a lower stress environment while saving money. Community college professors, at least where I went, either have a lot of work experience and a masters, or have a doctorate and work at other 4 year colleges as associate professors. CC is all what you make of it, sure there will be some losers that don't take it seriously but those people are at every school, 2 year, 4 year, public, and private.

    Thumbs up

    I had poor grades in high school. (my OWN fault, nobody elses!) So while in the army I began at a local CC, my grades (after some maturity) were good enough that eventually I was accepted to a few different 4 year universities when I decided to finish my BS. Plus, it is a heck of a lot cheaper way to knock out the same pre-reqs you will have to take anyways, and get all the english comp's and math done and over with.

    My parents made me go there because I didn't know what career direction to take. I loved it there and have nothing but good memories at community college. It was so much easier to meet girls at CC than university.

    Well I did it (community college) a little backwards.

    Well what happened to me was I had a full scholarship to one of the better 4 year Universities in my state. I had some health problems, left. Decided to work 2 jobs full time and save some money. Then I transferred to an even better university but was living with a girl and when that didnt work out I moved. I ended up going to a community college after I had over 2 years of credits for a couple reasons: 1. I could go online completely.2. I could at least get an associates degree very soon which isnt a big deal but did show I at least finished something-rather than just spending several years part time plugging towards a 4 year degree that I really dont need anyway.

    I had the highest SATS in my high school class, I tooke the LSAT as a college soph just for the hell of it and scored in the 97th percentile, I had academic scholarships,etc but for me traditional college just had no point. I am an entrepreneur and have NO interest in working in a degreed field where I would have to work under the owners sons or peoples girlfriends or kiss butts to get anywhere or whatever. I only work for myself so I take classes that are directly related to things I do in life. Anything I will be involved in career-wise will be on an ownership level, and in my experiences most degrees prepare you only to be a good employee or have credentials that look good. I dont care about looking good, just getting stuff done.
