My Experience: Why I’m Choosing Community College

A year ago, if you had asked me where I would be attending college next year, I would have named three or four high-ranked options, most of which were far away from my high school. One thing is for sure, I would not have said I'd be going to community college. I did all of the things you're supposed to do – I toured the schools on my list, got recommendations from teachers who liked me and turned most of my applications in early. But my admissions story ended differently than I expected, and I'm sharing my story because I think it might be able to help other people who haven't applied to college yet.
