how big of a difference does it make when you get accepted to a university?

for example person 1 gets accepted into a U.c school and stays their for 4 years vs person 2 takes 2 years of community college and then gets accepted into the same U.c school. How big of a difference does it make?

Yeah go to a community college first or online classes. Find a university that will accept your credits and find out how many credits they will accept. You will save a ton of money. I graduated from DePaul University a few years ago. The credit hours were over $300.00 per credit hour, i,'m sure they are higher now. When you graduate from a better
University your diploma will be from that university and you student loans will be a lot lower.

Going to community college two years is much cheaper. It will save you a lot of money when you transfer to university later than just going to university for all four years.

Only psychologically, Type A personalities thrive irrespective of their environment. Some may benefit from the initial financial advantage, over the course of time the "grain" gets shifted from the chaff. Safe Journey

Cee11 ^ is right. And when you graduate from the university, your degree will have exactly the same value as anyone else's. It won't matter at all that you attended another school initially.

While I didn't attend a community college, through friends and relatives it doesn't seem to matter. If you get into the same school, then your bachelors is from the same U.C. school and the community college is irrelevant. It's your prerogative to even list it on your resume. It's similar, I imagine, to if you get your bachelors at Hicksville, No where and your Ph.D. at MIT. No one even asks where you got your bachelors.
