Let me know if a thread like this one exist or not.
Thanks a bunches.

Explain your option in your opinion in great detail.

Which of these choices appeal to you the most? Would you rather try homeschooling instead of going to public school or the other way around? Would you prefer a community college instead of an university or the other way around?

While I eventually graduated from a four year university, I do have an associates degree from a community college. I think an associates degree is an incredible value that many people overlook. Two years of university, does not look nearly as good on a resume as a two year associates degree. I also think going to a community college is an excellent life experience that more people should have. Unless you live in a particularly diverse neighborhood, or have very diverse friends, community college will be the most diverse experience of your life. You meet old people, young people, parents, grandparents, imigrants, etc. In two weeks I will have a masters degree, but I still value my community college experience above all else.

I was hoping to go to an university after I finish community college yet things happened.

University, simply because I wouldn't give away the times I've had at UK in longer than I can imagine. Had wonderful moments and memories, met some of the best People and Professors that I ever could have had the pleasure of Meeting! So Yeah, its University for Me. And if I was still in High School, I would still go with Public School; the best Public school, now mind You.. in the area over Home Schooling any Day.

I grew up in Private school mostly. in my experienced opinion, Private Prep schools are great for elementary and middle school. Public schools have better options when it comes to clubs and furthering education in HS as for college depends on major. College offers smaller classes. if your looking to stay in the same area you grew up community college is the best perfect option for two years. if you need connections for your job go university route first and take freshman classes at CC during the summer and maybe go back to cc after two years at a university. never take freshman classes at a university its not beneficial at all.
