Now I’ve never posted on here but I read every article to help benefit my training. I’m 18 and live in Alaska and will be graduating from high school on May 8, I’m at the point in my life where I’m applying to colleges. Now I’m not going to any big school just staying in state. I?ve applied to all three colleges we have up here UAF, UAA, UAS and I’ve been accepted to all of them. I’ve lived most of my life in anchorage and I don’t think I want to go to UAA.
Right now I’m living 5 hours from Fairbanks so I know I’d like it there for college (UAF) and that was my plan school. But during spring break it hit me man I graduate here in a month wow; and I started think about going to UAS in Juneau instead cause it would be something totally different.
So I talked to my mom and pops and asked them what they think. They told me that college is about an experience and it should be fun while bettering my education. Then I asked my teacher she told me that if I want to do it go for it, worst that could happen is that you transfer to UAF if you don’t like UAS.
My major is going to be biological sciences. UAF has a better school for that then UAS. But I was thinking for trying UAS for a year or two and see if I like it and if I don’t transfer to UAF.
The bigger picture for me is that apart of me says to take the chance and go, but the other part says go to UAF. Now I don’t want to get through college at UAF and be like man why didn’t I go to UAS and try it. But then again I don’t want to get to UAS and be like this sucks why’d I come here.
Guess what I’m asking is what about you guys, what where your reason you went to the college you did. Just trying to get some help
