Do you think that the growing number of non-selective private and public 4-year colleges that are going test-optional for admissions (or even transcript-optional as Goucher is doing) are in some sense trying to become 4-year versions of community colleges? Or maybe not trying, but drifting in that direction anyway? Back in the day there were quite a number of private 2-year colleges, in the East. But then, 4-year became the gold standard for middle class and upper middle class students, and the 2-years seem to be gone.
