If I was deported, what are my chances of returning to the US?

I was deported a year ago at the age of 20 from the US while attending a community college and having lived in the US since the 5 months of age. I have been searching for a way back so I may continue my education and get back to my normal life. I only speak and understand about 40% Spanish, so it has been a very difficult year since the deportation and I would like to return home. What are my options for returning to the US?

Well the issue here is why you were deported in the first place and what could have prevented the deportation. If you were deported for a criminal violations, your chances are slim to none for returning legally to the U.S. If you were attending a community college while not a US Citizen, did someone report you as being not a legal resident? If it was not a criminal violation then you should discuss this with a U.S. Attorney who handles and specializes in immigration law and deportation matters.
