I took summer classes at a CC. Definitely much different from a University. It wasn't really for me, but I can see why others would go there.

Honestly, JC is even less like high school than freshman year at a 4-year university is in all the ways that most 18 year olds will care about. No one will hold your hand, most of the material will be a significant step up from senior year and the material that isn't is at least a great deal more specific. I personally think it's a great system and is a great choice for people who are willing to sacrifice experiencing the cultural concept of "college life". You will find people who are young and smart, probably way more than you expect. But JC isn't there for socializing, it's there for you to work hard and make the next step to a school you really want to go to.

It is a mature environment, great teachers and kids who really want to learn.

Of course if I I could go back and had the means, I would have certainly liked to go to a 4yr university from the start and experience the whole campus life. But CC was great for me and I would recommend it to anyone who needs to save some cash or just wants to get there basics out of the way quickly.
What these guys said.

Plus, the amount of cleavage at community college...good God. I didn't go to a public high school, so on my first day I was in awe.

I'm not doing the CC route, but I took some dual enrollment classes at one and I can tell you that what others have said about CC is true. Sure, the basic classes have alot of drop-out goof balls, but the teachers are top-notch and the environment allows you to get to know them.

I have a question for everyone who is in college: Are the average high school GPA's of people who get accepted into the university numbers inflated? I've seen like for Loyola at NO that the average is 3.6 but I know someone who graduated from High School with a 3.9 out of 5 (would be like a 3.0 out of 4 I believe) and got accepted, and I've seen several others get into other universities with lower grades than what appears there.

that's why you use class rank.

Class rank is ********. A school didn't accept me solely because of my class rank even though I took basically every hard class my school had to offer, and they accepted my friend who was in the 80% percentlile but took **** like pottery and crafts.

I don't know about most schools but my high school accounted for class difficulty with regards to class rank.

Not in Texas. If you are in the Top 10%, you get automatic acceptance at any state university. Which is why UT and A&M are the biggest opponents of it.

Mine didn't. They flat out told me on my rejection letter that I didn't get in because of class rank and that's the only thing they mentioned. My ACT score was like 6 points higher than their average too.

Well due to me being a dumbass and not trying in high school that wouldn't have helped me out at all, that's pretty cool though.

I attend Community College in Canada, I'm currently in my 6th (and final) semester. It's significantly cheaper, but it's a bit harder to socialize with people. If of course, you want to socialize. There are no big clubs, just a few geeky ones nobody is in. The campus is pretty small too so there's not a whole lot to do. But there are some nice professors who actually have experience in the field. I've been taking some investment courses and my professors have actually worked in brokerage houses so they have real experience. Not sure about University.

Anyways, i am attending University in Canada this fall though, and I've gotten about 1.5 years credit for a 4 year degree. Looking forward to the experience, but I'll still be living at home.

Not true, in this state, you get GPA boosts for taking Pre-AP or AP classes.
