Decision to start university career at MJC makes sense

When people ask me why I chose to attend Modesto Junior College, I sometimes don’t know how to answer their query or even where to begin. It’s not that I regret my decision. No way. And MJC wasn’t my only option, either. I was accepted to every college I applied to. I spent many an hour sitting at the kitchen table poring over homework, after tennis practice or a 4-H event. I pondered going to UC Davis or Cal Poly SLO and wondered how it would work out. How could I choose the best path for me, my future residence for the next four years, at least, if I was barely turning 17 when I applied for college.
