Which is more beneficial to the majority of people who are going to colleges ?

More expensive but higher quality education and environment of a prestigious University or a cheap and easy institution such as a Community College, but only offers a two year study?


I would choose university. (Not because I'm already in one....)

Honestly, I would go for just the "name" and I would know that the success rate of me in a Uni would be much greater and that I am capable of making all the money back.

But some people have different point of views. They would rather go to CCs because they're cheaper and then transferring out after 2 years.

This post needs more thought in it since it's like comparing a Mansion to an apartment. Of course, people would refer Harvard over a community college. There's a reason why one declines some of the top ranked students worldwide while one accepts anyone. You can compare a regular 4 year university to a community college. Then you can ask whether going to the 4 year school is better or starting off at the community college then moving to the university for the last 2 years is better. Tough call then since it depends on your financial situation, what school you want to go to, what you want to do, and how you want your college life to be.



I'm not an idiot. So hypothetically, your family's economic condition has worsened and that now it's difficult to pay off the loans which are used in the universities. In this kind of dilemma, which school are you willing to go?

I think going to University will benefit you more than Community college when you're getting a job.

I can't say anything but agree with the first post.

if you're trying to get a job as soon as possible, then community colleges are better. if you're going for the long run, then if you're a university graduate, you're likely to be hired with a nice, decent paying job. however with the economy nowadays, even uni grads with master degrees have some trouble landing jobs.

next year i'll be a senior in high school, but i'll also be taking classes at a nearby community college. after i graduate i'll probably go to one of the big universities in texas like UT or Tech. i think i'll have around 5-6 college credits when i graduate. i could have more, but i hate english and science. hoping to major in business or finance.

It all depends on what field you want to be in.

Wanna elaborate on that?

That was very vague.

You won't see a doctor in college, and you won't see an auto mechanic in university.

you save money by going to community colleges but you miss out on the freshmen experience. so it balances out. employers can careless about what community college you went to as long as you transfer to a nice university.

Prestigious universities...that would be a good one
but then community college is better

Personally, I would rather go to a prestigious university, mainly because I know I would have a better future. I definitely would rather have the higher quality education, even if it's expensive. I want to work in the medical field, so a university would help me alot more than a community college.

If you're planning to become a teacher or something, a community college might be better.
