High school students are expected to know what they want to do, realize the importance of the SATs, and then gain acceptance to a top university or a four-year college. They leave home, live on their own, and are supposed to succeed in college. Most high school students don’t have that kind of a plan. Because they don’t know what they want, they are not motivated to score well on the SATs. Some students don’t have the maturity to deal with the pressures of college life. Some students are just late bloomers. If you can relate to any of the above, have financial constraints or need a fresh start, you should go to a community college.
Let me tell you a quick story. One of my best friends went to a respectable tier 1 business school (that he wishes to keep private). He spent his first two years of college in large lecture halls with over 200 cut-throat-competitive students, and hard to reach professors. Towards the end of his sophomore year, he was frustrated with his education. He had already spent upwards of $80,000 in loans and felt like he was getting “ripped off.” Thankfully for my friend, he was able to switch to a new major. Unfortunately, he will have to do an extra semester.
Now, if my friend attended community college with the plan I laid out in The 3 Word Truth To Attending Community College And Transferring, he would have been in class with no more than 30 students who were willing to work together, and a professor that wants to see him succeed. He would have spent only about $7,000 over two years and had more flexibility to figure out or change what he wants he wants to do. Then, he would transfer to the same university or better as a junior. The students would be more mature. The classes would be smaller (because they are focused towards his major). And finally, he would graduate with the same degree, at half-price, and two networks of friends (more on this later).
