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


In order to become a teacher you need to graduate from University. Then 2 years in teacher's college.

@ O.P
Am I missing something here? Or is community college different from where you are? O_o
From where I'm from. Community college's are for immigrants and people who dropped out of high school. When you say community college do you mean regular college??


I don't plan on becoming a teacher, so I don't really care for their requirements.
Didn't know you had to graduate from a University to become a teacher.

Any other job that doesn't require for you to graduate from University,
might be a better idea to attend a community college.

OR if you already have a plan set-up; then go with what your plan goal is.

Community Colleges aren't that bad it's cheap but only good if you have some goal setup already.I have already setup my goal, I will take COmmunity College for two years then transfer myself to Hofstra with a decent grade if not i'll go to Stonybrook University or Dowlin Aviation University for flight instruction.

its better to be able to say haha i go to harvard and you?
rather than saying hahah i go to a community college. not dissing anybody that does but i personally would rather have the bragging rights.
If I could and have the patience to then i would go for the masters.

Had to edit my post. There seems to be a difference from where I am. When people usually say "community" college. We refer to those colleges in community centers where immigrants attend to get their education and graduate to work here owning a small business or something. Or people that dropped out from high school who are looking back to get back on their feet.

I should say that if you will be having a choice of course you would rather be in a prestigious university rather than a community college. I'm not saying that community college aren't good what my point is choices may vary depending on financial capacity

oh i see. i was just surprised when you said it's just for immigrants because i know a few immigrants at my school and they're going to universities with good reputation.

Mmm , Canadian universities aren`t as expensive so I don`t think there`s much difference
between universities and colleges here . One is more likely to get in a university here
if one has amazingly good marks . If not , off to college he / she goes ! So , the advantage
is the probably just the name . Here , we go where we feel we might be successful 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.


That still made no sense. Why wouldn't I "see" doctors or auto mechanics.... Wtf do you mean..

Dude, wtf are you saying?

What's the point of transferring to Hofstra or Stonybrook? Hofstra is already really easy to get into without transferring and Stonybrook is like... one of the cheapest universities in the nation.... O_o.

Some careers are best done in university, while others are best done in college. It's a matter of what career you want to do.

Okay, you're an idiot. I'm talking about Uni and CC. And how can Uni lack more majors than a CC?

I asked you to "elaborate" something, yet you gave me something even more ambiguous. Judging by your mindset, I doubt you can even get into a university. Dumbass.

O_o Well, some people can't barely afford to go to College.What's the big deal of Community College's so what it's cheap you can still get a job in two years save up money to transfer out to another prestigeus college.Also, I have to dissagree with the guy who created this topic that only poor and immigrants go to Community College and dumb-ASS, my brother is poor his an immigrant he went to COmmunity College he told me that it's a best way to save up money.He told me thatall his friend who goes to a prestigious colleges are often the one has to pay a lot of money when they graduate like they have like 80,000 loans my brother has 30,000 loans that is perfect so you dn't have to work so hard to get that money.


===
--So, Onces you get out of college you can make more money.

Nope, you need a skill in order to get a job,right now looking for a job in the US will be difficult beause of our economic problem.If you do manage to get a job it will take you a year to pay off that much loans.Why would I want to go to college for four years to a prestigious College that I can take 2 years and another 2 years in Community COllege then I can manage to go to Aviation school.
