My parents do not want me to go to college out-of-state even after I got accepted.
(I apologize for this really long explanation)
I have previously talked to them before about applying to a certain college out-of-state, they seemed unsure about it but gave me the okay. So then, I started to apply to three more out of state colleges and notified them about it as well, and they didn't mind. When I finally got an acceptance letter from one of them, I was overall filled with joy and they gave me the congrats. Now, it's time to put in a deposit and schedule a registration date for picking out classes and such over the summer. All of a sudden, they now forbid me to go out-of-state after I just applied a total of 4. My reasons to go out-of-state is my way to a start in adulthood because I get to do things on my own without the temptation of having my parent nearby. I do not want to live in California anymore, I believe there are more opportunities out there for me. This is my first acceptance so far and I really do like this school. They offer a lot of academic and career opportunities for their students. I understand my parents point of view on my safety and the financial circumstance. But I really want to go to a school where I know I'll love, I do not want to spend another 4 years miserable like I am in high school. They highly recommend community college than a university because it is closer and it saves a lot of money, (no offense to community college) but I didn't suffer all those AP classes and sleepless nights just to go to community college. (excuse my language ahead) that would just mean I worked my ass off for nothing. I want the best for myself and to get a good education where I know I'll succeed. I've been applying for scholarships and finding a job to make this work, and to have them forbid my choice of what could be the start of becoming somewhat independent and responsible is ridiculous. I've done my research and all I could do, but my mom especially is being hard headed about it and won't let me pursue my goals. Would this have been different if I were a boy and safety wouldn't be an issue since that is mostly my mom's problem?
