look up any word, like dirty sanchez:

A place where I went as a hope to transfer to a university as a junior. I earned an associates degree in three different subjects, and I soon realized that there are absolutely no employers who really give a rat's ass about an AA degree. I got accepted to a UC school that costs 27k a year and had to decline my admissions due to the cost.

College is simply too time consuming and expensive for what it is. Many of my buddies are graduating with BA's, MA's and are in some serious, reversible debt reaching close to 100k. Don't fall into the trap of thinking college is the only way to be successful. Create your own business or invest the money into something else besides a degree. Buy real estate in this down market and cash out kids.
What we don't understand is that there isn't a mysterious job market that opens up to us when we graduate from a Community College or University. It's just the same o' lame minimum wage corporate jobs that you could get without a degree anyway. Avoid the dogmatic trap and do something more beautiful.

The only type of school that I could afford thanks to a tanking economy.

Funny enough, it also makes everything you did in high school irrelevant.
I was accepted to the University of Illinois-UIUC. But after crappy financial aid and being unable and unwilling to get many loans, I ended up having to go to the local community college instead.

A transitional phase between the acquisition of a high school diploma (during which considerable luck was involved) and either homelessness or lower-middle class obscurity.
I got an associate's degree (abbreviated "FD" for its more common term, fake degree) from my community college because someone told me the reason I wasn't learning anything in school was ADD, instead of actually making me confront the fact that my head is full of mashed potatoes and that I would be a ditch digger for the rest of my life unless I chose to, God forbid, apply myself to my education.

A type of college you pay for by course units over the traditional semester-set fees in universities.
A term which people on Urban Dictionary rant the shit out of, because they thought they could graduate with an associate's degree and be set for life, or take any courses they want and expect to transfer to a top-prestigious school. Sorry, but that's not how it works.

It's nobody's fault but your own if you weren't aware of what credits would transfer or not. You're supposed to plan this before you enroll in your classes. If you plan on transferring to state college, ideally within the same state, you're not going to have issues with your credits. However, taking intermediate algebra over college algebra isn't going to fly with most universities. If you feel your college or guidance office failed you, why don't you rant on about that particular school, so that people can spend their money elsewhere?

Trying to convince people on Urban Dictionary to avoid comm. college, or mostly trying to belittle people who do go because of YOUR misfortune is just petty. When you're in tough economic times, and financial aid doesn't give a pot to piss in, people don't have much of a choice these days. Community college can offer great benefits for some people, including affordable tuition & high flexibility, while being able to take your standard freshman/sophomore courses.

A lot of people transfer from college to university, and a lot do not. Nobody is to blame in life but yourself.
Urban Dictionary user: LOL community college is for losers yo
*goes back to playing xbox*

Me: Is it really? I'm sorry to hear that.
