I really really really don't get it. Why is everyone so inclined to go to university right after high school instead of 1 or 2 years of college first? (By college I mean University Transfer Program). From what I know, college|
- is way easier to get into
- is much cheaper (plus you can probably get more scholarships if you have good grades, since the competition is not as fierce)
- has smaller classes
- offers more gradual transition from high school
Oh and aren't college students getting their first choices of classes when transfering to university?
I know that universities are more prestigious to go to, plus the quality of education might be a bit better (although isn't the UT program supposed to be compatible with the equivalent 1-2 years of uni?). But I just dont understand why would someone choose uni just because of that.. I would much rather go to college first, and then tranfer to uni..
I am trying very hard but I cant seem to see the flaws of it.. Am I missing something here??..
