i'm located in Rosamond, lemme pull up a picture


picture is maybe a few years old, there's a bit more neighborhoods built across the school

yeeahh it's pretty much a stop town for road trips. only thing we have is Willow Springs and i'm not into cars.
i go to school downtown at Antelope Valley College, where it's packed and the school is downsizing, to the point where you'd be lucky to get one of your core classes even if you've priority registration. plus it's even harder to find a job with all these people

tl;dr
-shithole desert town
-also hot, boring, and even a dirty ass town
-impossible to be a fulltime student, or get a real job

honestly i wouldn't mind if there's not much at Santa Clarita as long as i can make a living there while going to school. it doesn't take much to know how much better it is there than over here. plus it's closer to LA and such, and not too far from family. perfect.

i don't really know about SMC's reputation, but I can tell you for sure that a better college does mean a better education. a competitive college's courses with the same name as a less competitive college will usually be 100x harder, providing a much better education. i know this after talking with my friends who go to different colleges.

although you can definitely get a good education at less prestigious schools, you are much more likely to get a better education for a given major at a better school and have a leg up when you start your career

i got a couple of questions about fafsa.

last year i was enrolled and registered at Cal State Fullerton. i was ready to go. except my fafsa wasn't coming through for some reason. i talked to the financial aid people at CSUF and they said it'll be a while before it gets there. at the time i couldnt find a job and my parents were having trouble paying the rent/bills so i panicked and dropped all my classes.

now my questions are: do i have to pay back FAFSA? i dropped 17 days into the semester and i never received the fafsa money. but i just checked my financial aid history and they said i got/was going to get $1800

also, im trying to go to a CC this year but im wondering if i have a chance of getting money even with the fact that i dropped out last year?

this shit is stressing me the fuck out.


If you didn't receive any of the funds, then you do not have an obligation to pay back the financial aid you were supposed to receive. Besides, this only applies if the money you were going to get was a loan. I'm guessing the money you were awarded was in the form of a grant or scholarship (neither of which have to be repaid).

Just some clarification for you, FAFSA is not an organization that gives you money. It is an application that the school uses to determine if you are eligible for any financial aid. Financial aid can come in the form of grants, scholarships, work study opportunities, or federal loans. Out of all these, only loans have to be repaid (but there are still ways to get out of repaying a federal loan).

Yes, you can still receive financial aid for community college as long as you are not enrolled at another college or university at the same time. Since you say you dropped out of the other college, then there shouldn't be a problem with you getting financial aid for community college.

telling you man, in no way could it not be an upgrade from the AV. it'd just be nice to get out of here, but be close to the family, and also closer to LA

how hard's getting classes there though?

registration for CoC has been happening for about the last week.
A lot of my friends only have one registered class for the upcoming semester.
Its BEYOND difficult to get into all, or even the majority, of the classes you want. When do you plan to go to CoC?
This fall semester?? Today is the day that the 11th and 12th graders can sign up for classes @ CoC as well, so the competition is ridiculous. Personally, I'm really glad that I didn't have to end up going to CoC.

PM me if you have any other inquiries
Aug 11, 2010 @ 16:06
^ already taking CoC out of my plans that i'm considering haha. sounds even harder to get classes at AVC. it's just impossible to get core classes, everything else is pretty open.

good looks though, about to PM ya

Went to SU for a year (last year, so 09-10) but transferred out at the end of the year. Its a school in transition and I'd take a long look at it if you're thinking of going there. I had troubles with the rain and all but I was from out-of-state and I see you are not. Other than weather it has overcapacity issues, they keep raising class sizes and don't have the money to expand, I think housing this year is like 112% and a bunch of my friends got kicked out of their rooms or forced into "economy" triples at a strikingly under-discounted rate. The area is dope though and some awesome cultural stuff (music, movies, ect). I left because I felt they were modeling growth after Gonzaga (sports being improved at the expense of academics-lowered acceptance standards to get better athletes) rather than try and develop the strong academic reputation they had built up to. Overall it was a good school though, just some things to consider.
