Transfer out of 4 year university into a community college
I am a first semester freshman at Baruch College in NYC. I live in LI and the commute is about 1.5 hours. Unfortunately, do to a family issue, I wont really be able to make the trip day in and day out after this semester. So I was wondering if it was worth it for me to transfer out of Baruch and into Nassau Community College. I was planning on transferring out of Baruch anyway (I dont like the school at all), and going to Binghamton after 2 years. NCC is only 25 min from my house and I had pretty good grades in HS (3.7 gpa), so Nassau should hopefully be a cinch. I wanted to know if schools like Binghamton would really put much emphasis on my former college, basically if very high grades from NCC are better than average grades at Baruch. If it really is that much of a difference, I might have to get an apartment in the city. Also, if it helps, I was planning on transferring to the Binghamton SOM. Thanks for all the help in advance, I really appreciate it.
