How's this for a college plan?

I was trying to figure out a basic outline for my college education and I'd like some input from people who have already had the whole college experience. First of all, I want to start out completing my general education credits at Northwest Visa, a local community college in San Antonio. Live at home so I can save up some money for what I have planned next. Next I want to move to California -- where I'm originally from -- and just sit tight and work for a year to establish residency. Once I have my residency I want to transfer my credits over to UC Riverside and major in biological sciences. Once I graduate from UCR, I want to apply to UC San Francisco Medical School to complete university education for my career as a doctor. I figure I'll deal with internship and residency when I come to it; for now I'm just thinking college. So, to those of you who have had the college experience, if you wouldn't mind providing some feedback, I'd really appreciate it.

Dropping out of college for a year after finish two up is a really bad idea. Yes you will have every intention of going back, but ya know life happens, and it is very easy not to go back or not be able to go back. And taking so much time off of academics can throw you off when you go back... More

This sounds like a great outline. Very mature layout. However, you must know that college is expensive and things don't always go as planned. No matter what happens, don't give up. Keep your eye on the prize and you should get there eventually.

That sounds great. Community college is much maligned, but it's a great place to start... More

California is getting really strict on who they grant in state tuition to. It may be very difficult if you have not graduated from a California high school. Otherwise, if you are 21, your parents may have to be California residents... More
