Adriana, this is a very important question so you don't waste time and money. You need to find the best value for your money that fits your personality type and supports your vision for where you are going and want to go in life. Once you know that, the options can run the gamut from on-line, to community college, to 4 year undergrad, grad, etc. I would break this down into 3 steps: 1. Know Yourself, 2. Research options - including best value and likelihood to be admitted. 3. Commitment
Know yourself - I have a 4 step program for this, but it's know your personality type, know your talents and strengths, know what you care about (sectors of the world), and know your values. Going through this process will ensure the college is the right fit for you and supports your vision/mission.
Research options - this is researching schools, talking to people and getting the lay of the land. then assessing which match your above criteria and then doing the cost/benefit and admissions probability analysis.
commitment - is just that, committing confidently because you've successfully completed steps 1&2. Good luck!
