Great question! I was a transfer student from a junior college into a four year and totally loved my choice! Not only was I given the time to decide where to embark my career path on, but also I saved tons of money doing so!
There are major benefits from transferring over, such as security of acceptance depending on the partnerships/agreements your junior college has with the four year you decide to transfer to. For instance, a local community college can require students to take "X" amount of classes/units, possibly specific courses, and the ability to maintain a certain GPA level in agreement of transferring over to a specific four year college.
Because I went to community college and transferred over to a four year, I was not required to take the SAT exam.
If you decide to go to a junior college first, great! If you decide to jump straight into a 4 year that is great too!
I think it is different for everyone. Junior college does help for those not decided on a major and those who would like to save a little financially before embarking into completing their undergraduate degree!
