Is it possible to live at home while in college? Either online classes or daily commuting?
I'm in high school hoping to go into either a health or law profession after college. I am currently undecided about which university I want to go to and what my major will be. #college
It’s okay to not know what you want to major in. I changed mine four times over the course of the first two years of college. To help decide which college to attend, think about what’s important to you. Do you want the “classic” movie college experience? Maybe select a larger university outside of your hometown. Are costs and finances a big factor? Consider a local state or community college. For me, finances and *actually graduating* college were important, so I choose to stay local and forgo the party college experience.
Since you mentioned wanting to go into health or law after college, it seems like those professions place high value on a prestigious college degree so if you have the grades and work ethic, consider an Ivy League school or one similar, i.e. Stanford.
Marina recommends the following next steps:
If they are very strict, you may miss out on many events at college, which occur at night. However, you will still be able to have many wonderful experiences if you seek them out. Make friends and invite them to do fun things. Living on campus makes this process much easier, but if you take the initiative, you will still be able to get the same results. Keep an open mind and keep exploring the different opportunities.
It is smart to save money by living at home. Your life will be more difficult if you have debt after graduation.
