I'm going into my junior year and people are telling me how it's time to start getting info about and visiting colleges. im excited to get some independence, but cost is my main fear because i dont want my family to be broke just so i get a good education. another thing is i dont know if its social awkwardness or whatever but it scares me to go someplace new and have to find friends. i want to go to school in nyc, where theres a shitload of diversity in interests but im still worried about leaving my group of friends at home to go find new ones to skate with and like the same music and stuff like that. like how do you find kids who like that shit? idk man its to far away for me to worry, but i am for some reason

Craig basically hit the nail on the head. But for right now, I really wouldn't worry too much, because if you look at it, you're really only half way done high school. Focus on that right now. Take the SAT's, maintain a good GPA through out high school, and when it comes time to apply, apply. 

Leaving home and parting with friends and family is something everyone has to do at one point in time or another. It's all part of growing up honestly. You never really know, you might change your mind sometime between tomorrow and HS graduation and be hyped to head off to school. 

Things change in life, nothing stays the same forever, it's just something you need to cope with. As far as the social aspect of it, look at it this way, you and every other freshmen at which ever school you may choose to go to, are in the same boat. First year away from home, a brand new start. 

But overall I'd suggest do what Craig said. CC and then transfer, you'll make friends, save money, and it will help you grow academically. 

You'll be fine.

First off, go to a state university. Save the $.
How good are your grades? If you are a "meh" student, go to CC for 2 years. Fuck the pride aspect. If you are a really good student, just go straight to a university and apply for scholarships. LOTS of them. Get financial aid. And remember, this is undergrad. Don't stress it too much.

Furthermore, junior year is a bitch. Make sure you have a good classload with AP/IB/honors, or whatever your school offers. Do well on the SAT/ACT. Your family will guide you through this decision.

If you can skip CC, do it. You'll save money and time by taking GEs and Core subjects at the same time to whatever program you're in. As for social aspect, try to be careful on joining frats. If you're really into your studies, then join an academic club, otherwise join the greeks. I don't have a good GPA (2.9) mainly because of the fratlife lol, I don't regret it tho brah haha.

Look, it's normal to worry. College is an investment. It's what you do in college that matters. Take advantage where ever you decide to go. Also, college is a place to experiment, discover yourself and make substancial changes. If you are worried about finances, I'd advise attending a CC for 2 years and transfer. You'll get the best of both worlds. The fact is where you go won't change you. You can only make those adjustments yourself. If you go out of your way to meet people, you'll see yourself hanging out with more people. That's how life works. Nothing is handed to you. You just have to go get it yourself and get out of your comfort zone.

i dont know what state your in or howmuch your family income is, but check to see if you fit the criteria for financial aid. and everyone is fucking young and dumb in college, im sure you'll fit in somewhere.
