what is community college?
>>
I actually think I had a better learning experience at cc than the state school I transferred to. My math teacher was great and also taught at the state school I went to. Same for my more important teachers so they knew what they were doing. And the nice thing is that my classes were small so I could ask questions and get extra help easily.
>>
>>26144614
Community college is basically a lower-wage university that offers certificate courses, and associate degrees. They're relatively cheaper, but, have lower budgeting. Theres stigma that claims CC are just like high-schools, but, not really. Most people attend them to earn some credits for cheaper cost, and they include graduate programs to help transfer you into partnered Universities.

>>26144587

I dropped out of CC and make loads of money following my creative passions.

I liked CC. Everyone was sort of a loser there in one way or another, so we all helped each other out and everyone I met was very humble. Easy to get along with.

I transferred to regular college and it is literally all white, good-looking upper-middle class 18-22 year olds.

listen op
community college is great
you save money and then you can transfer to a state college
here in connecticut you can transfer to a state college with all your credits from cc no problem. They even have tracks for majors so you can graduate with an associates and then get a bachelors in the same program. Its much cheaper and not all bad.
>>
>>26144587
community college is high school 2.0
its two more years of high school for retards who couldnt get into a state college. And state college have like 80% acceptance rates which means these are the lowest scum of the earth. Not to mention all the elderly that go there for cultural enrichment. CC is great if you are a loser looking to sell drugs. If you want to learn anything worthwhile transfer to a state college. I know because I started in COmmunity College and blew the pants off all my professors got all a's and was blown away by how fucking easy it was. Then I transferred and I still feel like state college is a joke

basically I am too smart for CCSU
I should be at MIT or something where I am actually being challenged.

biting because not sure if troll thread

i went to university. a state school. all four years. but if i could do it again, i'd go to community college and get an associates in coding or some shit.

i'm extremely surprised at this thread. even the normie mainstream is almost to the point of openly saying "yeah college is a scam for most majors."

i log onto cancerbook sometimes. literal burnout kids from high school went to community college and are now making more than me. or at least, have titles that sound like they definitely make more money than me.

a definite technical skill, with certifications to back it up, will beat a bullshit english or economics *bachelor* degree every fucking time.
>>
>>26144587
Community college is a great way to save money doing your general education, after which you can transfer to any school in the country if you did well at a nice community college. My high school was 14 grand a year and we needed a two year break from tuition
>>
>>26145662
>most majors
well, not MOST majors. but no one is telling kids that some bachelors' don't mean shit unless you get a master's or even a PhD.

they're going into debt for no fucking reason.

don't take my word for it - look at job descriptions. monster, careerbuilder, indeed. the amount of employers who accept an associate's in accounting or bookkeeping is insane. and those jobs are like $12/hr starting. not fucking bad for two years of school.
>>
>>26144587
At least I graduated with a degree that taught me useful skills and am graduating soon from 4-year school with no debt.
Community College is a godsend in this economy.

It's different for everyone. There are people that treat cc like a place to socalize and get dick/puss and others treat cc like it's their last chance to get there lives together and get into a good university.

YOOOOOO LOL

Literally this. I took 17 credits the past two semesters and am only taking 15 this one (finishing up with CC this semester), and I feel like I have so much fucking free time that I get bored as hell. Whenever I talk to my friends who go to a university, I'm always surprised to find that we're learning the same shit at the same time, or that my professors for those classes are even ahead of them. It's also weird to think that my friends and I can study for exams together since we pretty much learn the same shit and have exams in the same format.

I thought university calculus classes would ask you about advanced theory and proofs but I guess not. Turns out some of the hardest questions were integrate so and so and I just wouldn't believe it whenever my friends told me.

The American education system really is nothing more than a huge gimmick.

How do you guys even get to 4 years at CC unless you are a special case have a job and other problems? You can take 2-3 classes each semester and get out in 2 years. Each class is about 3-4 credits and you need about 60 to get the AA degree.
>>
whats the difference between a technical and community college?
>>
>>26146801
I took four classes each semester but took a break after dropping out last spring for reasons outside of school, then came back this semester. Apparently, some classes I took didn't count for the general education requirements when I thought they did because of both me not knowing the college system that well and having kind of incompetent counselors help me schedule my classes.

Community colleges are for poor people and retards who had GPAs that were too low to be accepted by any state or private universities. If you do well in CC, you can transfer into regular state or private schools after two years.

Technical schools are for absolute complete retards who would never be able to pass college courses. It's carpentry, welding, electrical etc trades for lousy blue-collar jobs.

Alright, so answer me this:

If everyone in a country has a degree
Do the wages go up?
Does the cost of the degree stay the same?
Does the marginal benefit of obtaining a degree, or a higher degree increase or decrease?
What happens to blue collar work? Do you bring in immigrants, or will wages rise to attract the lowest rung of the white collar workers to "settle" for these jobs?

>Do the wages go up?
Slightly due to inflation, but not significantly.

>Does the cost of the degree stay the same?
The cost will continue to rise unless gov't intervenes.

>Does the marginal benefit of obtaining a degree, or a higher degree increase or decrease?
The marginal benefit of obtaining an A.A. or a B.S./B.A. decreases, but the marginal benefit of obtaining advanced degrees increases.

>What happens to blue collar work? Do you bring in immigrants, or will wages rise to attract the lowest rung of the white collar workers to "settle" for these jobs?
Wages won't rise. Outsourcing, Immigrants and robots; in that order, fill the blue-collar jobs.

>The cost will continue to rise unless gov't intervenes.
>The marginal benefit of obtaining an A.A. or a B.S./B.A. decreases, but the marginal benefit of obtaining advanced degrees increases.

So, can we agree that it's possible for the cost to rise faster than the marginal benefit?

>Outsourcing, Immigrants and robots; in that order, fill the blue-collar jobs.

So let's say the immigrants that do the jobs that cant be outsourced have their offspring also obtain a degree, because they have become a part of this "Nation where everyone gets a degree", then what happens? Do the 2nd generation immigrants compete with the "natives"? How do they do so?

Also, do you seriously believe we can have the majority (51% or more) of blue collar work automated BEFORE everyone currently employed in blue collar jobs exits the work force?

>>26145151
Don't do this if you go for a hard major. Your CC GPA does not transfer and you have to build your GPA off of classes that rape your GPA.

I did the math a few years back. CC was $6,000/yr. $12,000 for 2 years is good until you need 3 years of engineering school at $18,000/yr. You need 3 years because some of the classes were offered once a year and had to be taken in series. 5 years of schooling with a lower GPA at the end would have run 66k. Going straight to engineering school was 72k and took 4 years with a higher GPA at the end.

PA sucks for college prices no matter how you cut it. Falling in the hole where your parents are too rich for FAFSA yet poor enough that they can't pay for your schooling sucks. The last loan will be paid off in July, 4 years after I graduated.
