Chances are you will go to a college near where you live or go to one online. Many people now do parts of their degrees online then attend the college physically for awhile.
In-state is always cheaper than going to a college out of state because your local government subsidizes residents at the local public universities, not the private ones. Private universities charge whatever they want to everybody. Publicly-funded ones are much cheaper.
The real issue is what do you study. Do you listen to what everybody else says including the world system or yourself?
That’s the eternal question. Will I be the hero of my own life or will I be a clone, following everybody else?
College is not necessarily the answer to life. You are. Whatever lives inside of you is strong, unique and vital. College can help you find it but by itself college is a fantasy land for young people.
