Local Community Colleges

For students with average GPAs it’s often difficult to know which colleges to apply to.  You don’t want to waste your time filling out applications, especially if there are fees involved, only to find out that your application for enrollment has been declined.  Here is some advice if you fall in that category of students.  Don’t bee too proud to give your local community colleges a chance!

benefits of community colleges

Local community colleges have many benefits over larger, more prestigious institutions.  Here’s a list of advantages local community colleges have over major universities:

  1. Community colleges are much cheaper than big name universities and the college credits count the same toward your degree.  So why not spend less money in the beginning and go to the local community college and then transfer your credits over to the university of your choice.
  2. Community colleges can be a stepping stone to prove yourself in the classroom.  Their acceptance rates are much higher than major universities and once you are in, you can prove you belong by making the grades.
  3. Class sizes are often smaller at community colleges.  That means you will have a lower ratio of teacher to student, which means you will get more one on one time with your professors.
  4. Parking is usually much easier at community colleges
  5. Campuses are less crowded at community colleges.
  6. There are more community colleges available, which means there is probably one closer to your residence than a major university.
  7. Community colleges tend to be slightly easier than universities.  This point is debatable; however, in my own experiences of attending a community college as well as a division I. university, I think the community college classes were much easier.

Those are just a few advantages.  The important thing to realize is there is no shame in going to a community college.  It is a practical and economical alternative that makes sense for millions of students across the country.  If you hadn’t considered it before you definitely should now!

The Easiest Colleges to Get Into Based on High Acceptance Rates

Let’s face it, most high school students are average with average grade point averages, average SAT scores and average ACT scores.  Not everybody can make the Dean’s List and flaunt a 4.0 GPA with high SAT and ACT scores to boot.  It’s easy to find good college information for the smart kids and governor scholars of the world, but for the average Joe it’s sometimes difficult to find good information.  The purpose of this blog is to focus on the average high school student and provide information about which colleges are the easiest to get into.

CUNY Staten Island has 100% acceptance rate and is one of the easiest colleges to get into in the United States.

Exactly what do I mean when I say, “easiest to get into”?  By that, I mean which colleges will accept you as you are and let you enroll regardless of whether or not you have high marks.  A recent report by US News and World Report named one hundred colleges with the highest acceptance rates, meaning the colleges that accepted the most people and turned away the fewest.  According to their study, thirty-one colleges accepted everybody, one hundred percent of those who applied for enrollment.  There were also many more that accepted ninety-nine percent of applicants for enrollment (almost everybody).  With those colleges and universities instead of it being hard to get into them, it is actually hard not to get into them.  They have certainly reversed the trend.

It’s important to note that some people have complained that their report is misleading and although those colleges do “accept” everybody some of them then make each applicant go through a screening process in which some of them are denied.  However, more often than not, the report is pretty accurate.   In this blog we will be showcasing colleges and universities with very high acceptance rates that you should be able to get into very easily.

We will be previewing many of these colleges and universities, but not all of them.  Here is a list of 15 institutions that had 100% acceptance rates for the Fall Semester of 2011 in no particular order:

  • Goddard College of Plainfield Vermont
  • Fisk University in Nashville Tennessee
  • Granite State College in Concord New Hampshire
  • Baker College of Flint Michigan
  • Boston Architectural College in Boston Massachusetts

We will be featuring many colleges in future posts, but as I mentioned, we are focusing on colleges with the highest acceptance rates, so you will sure to receive the “congratulations” letter instead of the “sorry” letter from your perspective college in response to your application.
