My dd 16 is thinking of going the CC route right out of high school. The combination of athletics and degree programs can only be found out of state. Not only out of state, but half way across the country in both directions.
I'm fine with CC, and I'm fine with her going half way across the country, but not sure if out of state CC makes sense. When out of state, a CC degree becomes about the same price as a 4 year in-state degree. ETA: Per year the 2 are equal. The total price of the AS does not equal the total price of the complete BS.
At her level in her sport she would not be able to get on the team at the big State U's. She might be able to get in at one of the small private schools, but that becomes way too high a price for the degree she wants.
Another thing... she is a-ok about moving out of state
