i recently had to start thinking of where i wanted to go to school after highschool and all that because i had to sign up for the ACT's (michigan's state assesment test) and i got to thinking that i wanted to go to a community college for my first 2 years of schooling. it's not that my grades are THAT bad or anything, i've got a 3.14 accumulative gpa at one of better highschools in MI, you get like .14 added on to your gpa when you graduate because most of the courses are harder than all the other schools in the area, but i thought this would be a good idea because i eventually want to enroll in CCS (college for creative studies) which is a good art school in MI (probably the best, since it's basically the only one), but it's also $22k a year w/o any other class fees/books/lab charges/housing. so i concluded i want to go the a community college so i can get about 65% of my credits to transfer to the other school and save a good $40k, because, well, that's a lot of money.
i then looked into a local cc that's only about a mile from my house and it says that you can enroll in classes there if you obtain permission from your principal & counselor while still in highschool to start obtaining college credits. i thought this was a really good idea because i want to go into web design/graphic design stuff (ha, i'm in 'web design' at my highschool right now but it's a joke. i could teach this class in about 1 class period) and it'd be easy for me to get permission to start taking classes in this category because i made the website for my school (not yet up though, i'm not getting paid so i'll post it when i feel i want too lol) and i teach the graphics 4 class 7th hour, so umm, it should be easy to get permission to do this.
my question is, has anyone done this before/do you think i should try it? i'm not sure if they offer summer classes though, which is what i'd want to take (since that'd be the soonest time i'd be able to start, whenever their current semester ends, actually ****! their school probably gets out in 2 weeks, i'd have to sign up really soon, arghhh, better go see my counselor today), and i'd think because i've kinda blew off highschool (for my parents standards, my brother got a full ride scholarship in pre-dentistry and is going to be going into dentistry school when i graduate highschool) that it'd show that i actually want to do something with my life that will look good when i apply to another school.
