Hello everybody! I have a choice between an out of state university, which costs a lot, and a community college. Either way I plan to transfer to the "best"(intellectually rigorous) school I can. (I want to be around primarily people who think so I am thinking a college like reed college, HMC, University of Chicago, etc) What do you guys think. EDIT : I might be able to apply as a freshman (and only go to a college for three years) if I go the CC route. I could be a non-degree seeking student. Also I am from the US.
