I dove in for it, accepting the judgements of people. Those years of frustration on "will I ever get into a program?" taught me a lot..
I continuously searched for answers by asking a lot of questions. I'm a bit introverted but I love gaining advice that will help shape my mindset..
Since a CC has a smaller facility, it really helped narrow down and keep the connections closer to understand each other.
I realized that jumping into a University (especially quarter system) put a lot of pressure in me to study to PASS instead of study to LEARN in order to apply it for my future career.
I do not want to pay tremendous amount of money/tuition just to gain knowledge and throw out the door once the course is officially over.
Being able to master the foundation (pre-reqs) at a CC is a blessing for less $$ and maybe even less gas $$ spent on the travel.
I wish the best of luck to you too friend
