    Then why even bother going to a university? Seems like community college would be a much better use of your money to accomplish that

      University is meant to be higher level and teach you soft skills. Academics also aren’t supposed to be the only thing you do, but participating in clubs and sports is supposed to give students experience in leadership to make them better leaders when they graduate.

      It is supposed to be a civilian version of officer candidate school.

        So then I really fucked up by working fast food to pay for my textbooks when I could have been out playing sportsball

      2 vs 4 year degree. I do recommend going to community college first though and transferring if pursuing a degree.

        At least in the US, most community colleges offer 4 year degrees

          Maybe it varies state to state but I don’t know of any that offer real 4 year degrees, and I went to a community college

            Yeah, IvyTech here in Indiana will get you credit to transfer to a 4-year school but only offers associates degrees.

          Where? I can think of one that had a university satellite campus for a handful of programs. But those were the only 4 year degrees and they were still through a university and had university pricing.
