Choosing a college? help please!! - February 27th 2010, 05:14 PM

I know I want to be a medical assistant but would it be better to go to a college on campus or take online classes? If on campus then wuould it be better to go to a junior college or a trade school? Im gonna be a junior in august and Im taking some of the classes I need my junior year. Are there any summer programs I could go to that are close to Maryville, Mo or Clarinda, IA?

I don't know too much about colleges but I'd say that there are both pros and cons for both being on campus and taking online classes. I guess you'd have to weigh up and the pros and cons and sees what feels right and is best for you. AS for the summer programs, maybe try looking into that using google or things like that, or asking around in your local area.

There are pros and cons to both, you can take online classes, but it depends what the class is. It also depends how hands on the progam is online courses might not be an option. Junir/community colleges generally look better careerwise than trade schools and it's the same for online degrees.
