alright while college isn't in my immediate future, it is definately on the horizon seeing i am on the verge of the summer of me becoming a junior. i just started thinking about where i really need to go to college, seeing how my sister is in the same situation as me. i have 3 options, 2 really but the other is always there. 1st option, go to the local community college 20 minutes from my house. it is a respectable school with a lot of options to work and study, and at the same time still be able to ski. its affordable, and there is no reason they wouldn't accept me based on my solid B average. my second option is to take the traditional route, and go to State college. It is more expensive, would require i work harder, and probably limit my skiing time. It would open up more doors for me for colleges/jobs/oppurtunities in other states, but do i really want to rack on 80,000 dollars in debt (parents aren't helping) and come out with a diploma that would be just as valuable as one from my local community college. my third option is not as realistic as the other two, but definately plausible. Take the route of going out west, either to Western State Colorado (correct me if i'm wrong) where i can ski and do all sorts of shit, or any of the various west coast mountain colleges. I'd do the 5 year plan, and get my skiing in that way. My plan is to take college courses leading to a successful business career, although i dont know what i want to major in. we'll see when i decide, but as for now, these seems like 3 plausible options.
So anyone with any advice who has been in this situation before tell me what's good. also, if it matters i live in maine, and i'd rather get out as soon as i can. also, if i attend state for 2 years i can most likely switch to a western college 2 years later and finish my degree up there. always got to think of something.
