I'm a high school senior who wants to eventually go to grad school and want to make sure I start off on the right foot. My mum thinks that starting off at a community college would be fine, but I think that they would probably not take me seriously. The reason for the community college is that my family does not have much money and she does not think that grad schools give out full rides. My boyfriends friend says that if you don't get a full ride to grad school that you are doing something wrong. Any advice?
