Okay, I haven't been in school in over a year. Left High school. Got my diploma online in a short amount of time.
Turns out the "diploma" I studied and took tests for, isn't accreditied at some privately owned colleges. I wanted to do a 9 month certificate program at Tesst College, however, they don't accept my "diploma". But community colleges do. Ive been a stay at home mom for a while and I feel its time to go to college and work towards something to make my daughters life, and mine, a lot brighter. Ive been very blessed that my SO has been able to keep me home for this past year.
Now, I want to start soon. I'm going crazy sitting on my butt letting my brain turn to mush. "spring classes" start jan 28th. Now, thats not very far away. I have to order DD's birth certificate for the financial aid. I am really nervous, especially since I haven't been in school for a while. Should I start at the end of January? I dont know what to do... I'm taking my GED test tomorrow (tesst college accepts GED's) but I feel my whole plan has changed and The community college would be the best way to go because I can actually earn a degree and not a certificate. Even though with tesst I'd have a job sooner than the community college.
I am stuck and I need to make a decision soon. I just want whats best for myself and my daughter. I was a very good student in high school. I'm smart and I feel my brain is not being worked to its potiential right now. Should I just go and start classes at the end of January?
