So, I have been accepted to a few major universities. I am now trying to decide how I am to go about going to them. I want to look at both the economic and educational sides of it. I would like to attend Central Mich. for 4 years, but it will cost me tons of $$$ in loans. What I was thinking of doing is going to Community College for 2 years, getting my required courses done there, then transferring to get my 4 year. It will be cheaper this way, but the downside is of course the social aspect of it, I will pretty much loose all my friends, as they are going away to a 4 yr school immediately, but would I loose out on any vital edu by doing this?
So, my question really is this.... what have you, that went to college, do? What plan sounds better, meeting both the econ and edu aspects of it, going to a 4 yr right away, or going to CC first, then transferring?
