I would advise myself not to take community college lightly. There are more scholarship and school involvement opportunities than you would think and you should take advantage of as many as possible. I wouldn't have had to work as hard to pay for college if I'd done this and so I would've had more time to take more classes and might have been able to transfer sooner.
Also, even though a class seems easy, do the best you can in it because it may make the difference in your GPA that you need to move forward in your education.
Knowing now what I do, I would tell myself to make sure to apply for all of the scholarships and grants available. I would try harder to get the money, and I would make wiser decisions. I would tell myself not to go out of state for college, as it costs a great deal more. Community College is a wiser choice unless you have plenty of scholarships. I would also suggest to never skip classes. I know that you will want to, and I know that your friends will want you to, but it’s not worth it. College really teaches you the value of money, and classes are money. Take college seriously and never give up. You can do it.
