Getting a Head Start on College

I graduated with my A.A. before I even hit my 18th birthday. I'm only 19 and I'm getting my B.A. soon. How is this possible? Most community colleges have a program called concurrent enrollment. You can take courses at your community college and gain both high school and college credit at the same time. You might be thinking that this is something like AP courses, but it's not quite. You get more college credit by actually taking the college course than by taking an AP course. Usually you don't have to pay that much either. When I did this I only paid one dollar a unit. Getting a head start on college can have you done so much sooner. Thought I'd share this with everyone so they can take advantage of this opportunity.
