    I went to a university for 5 years right after college – got a double major.

    Worked in the real world for 8 years – at another university nonetheless.

    Went back to school at my work’s university for 5 years and got a Master’s degree (had to do a lot of prereqs plus I was working FT).

    I’ve transferred several times because I changed my major, and then I realized there was a better school for my major. So, I initially attended a CC, then a university, and finally (and still) a second 4 year university. I plan to start grad school immediately upon graduation at the same school I’m currently attending (graduate in December then start grad school in January).

    I highly recommend attending a community college for the first two years. You get a chance to “get your feet wet” because it’s almost always easier and classes are smaller, so professors can (and are generally more willing) to give you more one on one help. Also, it’s so much cheaper. You get the exact same credit for the courses, so why make your life harder and spend the extra money?

    I went to one university for one year, then transferred to another for 3.5 years (double major).  I’m graduating this December (finally)!

    Other. I started out at a big university and came home after 1 semester (obviously it wasn’t for me, lol).

    Then I went to a community college and took a few classes. I had no idea what I wanted to do, until I realized I wanted to be a nurse. I took a CNA course and worked as a CNA for 4+ years before and during nursing school.

    Now I’m an LPN and will be going back for my RN. I would eventually like to have my masters and specialize in Psych.

    @MsMidwesternCharm:  It can be a big pain, but it really depends on how well you plan. All my credits transferred without a problem, but I specifically chose classes I knew would (mainly basics).

    I went to a community college for two years and I have now transferred to a 4 year school.

    ETA: Virginia community college are excellent about setting you up with a specific transfer degree, so no unused credits, and they even offer you $1,000 a year for your 4 year school.
