I am a high school senior, and I am working on the whole college decision process right now. I have between a 3.6-3.9 unweighted GPA. When I graduate, I'll have taken two AP classes and maybe three AP exams. I have an ACT of 28, but I'm pretty sure that it has gone up since I have retaken it. I will be taking the SAT in week, and on the first practice test I got an 1170. As for my financial situation, my parents have been saving for my education my whole life. I am well off and will have no problem paying for college after scholarships are added into the mix.
I say all this to ask if it is weird for me to go to a community college. I know that I could easily get into any of the state schools (KY) and some good private ones too. The thing is, I haven't visited a college that I connect to. I know that many of the colleges that I can get into have extremely good academics and professors and lots of good research opportunities, but they just don't seem like the right fit.
I have little to no interest in the social aspect of college. I have no interest in parties or joining a sorority. Living in a dorm sounds like it could be a nightmare. I go to an extremely small high school (about 60 students 9-12) and I have never enjoyed being surrounded by people.
If I go to community college, I'll go to the one that is down the road from where I live. I pass it everyday going to school and I know a few people who go there or will go there next year.
Basically I'm asking if I should step out of my comfort zone and go to a four year or if I should take the 2+2 approach. Any advice would be much appreciated.
