I'm about to start college, and I don't know anything.
I'm posting this on The Verge because I need as much help as possible, and I love this website and the people within it.
I'm a senior in high school and I'm about to go to college. Essentially, I have two options:
Option 1: Go to College A (FSU) and take get into $7,000 debt every year, but have many opportunities as it is in the capital of the state which I live in. (Florida).
Option 2: Go to College B (FIU), which gives me a full-ride, and live with my parents. I'd save up A LOT of money, but I'd be missing out on so many opportunities. I don't know if this is a good idea or not, but should I just do my first two years at College B, get my AA degree, then transfer to College A?
I plan on going to law school eventually, and perhaps entering the IP field.
Basically, my question is: Which option should I take? And if i stay home for college, would I be missing out on the college experience? I've heard that many people go into debt, so it's not too bad.
