College or cosmetology?

Hello I am part of a family of four I am 17 years old in I am graduating early and haven't decided between college or cosmetology school. I'm afraid if I only go to cosmetology school people will think less of me because everyone else in my family went to a university. How do I make a decision??? Please help. Also I have a boyfriend in college three hours away and want to make a choice with him in mind.
