GPA is becoming more irrelevant as time goes on. I mean, shit, yeah it's important, but admissions factor in other things like essays, extracurriculars and shit like that.

i did shitty during my freshman and sophomore year then pulled together my junior and senior year finishing with a 3.4. I only had my academics which were sub par compared to most. I had zero activities or clubs or nothing. I applied to one state college and got in, but I decided to go to a CC. I got my waives feed and a pell grant so I'm basically getting paid to go to college. I have a 4.0 currently with intentions on transferring to a great school. I believe state colleges and such don't give much attention really as long as you have above a 3.0. If i were you, i'd consider concentrating much more if you want to get into a good school.

On an side note: What careers would be best suited for a political science major? I was contemplating switching from business to political science but couldn't think of many career choices. I'm currently doing GE requirements right now until I decide whether or not to choose a major.

northridge and easily got in. If you have above 3.0 you don't even have to worry bout SATs b/c they disregard them. I go to PCC right now, and could transfer early since I have packed on the units. I'm sure that I might have been able to attend a UC, most likely riverside but ehh. The transferring process is somewhat of another hassle if you decide to go to a CC.

so i have a 2.6 cumulative with 1st semester junior year.
2.8 freshman
2.0 sophomore
3.2 junior year, but i am retaking 2 d's from my sophomoric year and 1 more d in senior year.
do you think i will be able to pull off a 3.0 or higher if i get a 3.8 junior year 2nd semester and a close to a 3.7 my whole senior year?

unless you're applying to a more selective school, all that matters is GPA.

I recommend living at least one year in the dorms. Even though you have to share a room with some jerk you don't know, it's a huge bonding experience with other freshmen or whatever year you are and you'll have stories for years. Everyone loves a "fuck my roommate" story.

its a fact that larger schools pay very little attention to essays, often times even extracurriculars. They factor out MAD people solely based off gpa/sat/act.

There's really no way to figure out what college's actually pay attention to when looking at your application. You could speculate forever but in the end admissions is a total crapshoot. Only thing you can really do is do well in school and complete all parts of the application to make you as appealing as possible to the school. If you need to write an essay write the best essay you can. If you think you need extracurriculars go join some clubs. But in the end there's no real way of knowing exactly how colleges make their decisions.

Any good business schools in LA? I'm about to finish up my 2 years at De Anza College in Cupertino (The Bay), and I'm looking to transfer out to a state college in CA. Two of my current options are Either San Francisco State or San Jose State (where I currently live). I'm honestly trying to get out and away from home for a few years, so any suggestions would be more than helpful. Thanks

csu? Cause la has good private, or uc's that would be better off for business. BUT i've heard that cal poly SLO, SDSU, fullerton and long beach.

You should really look into that cause im not too sure.

Hey man I've been to both DA and SJSU. If you really can't get into the UC's or private schools, I suggest you try to get in SDSU or Cal Poly SLO before either SFSU or SJSU. SDSU is tiers above the rest in business. And any school that starts with a CSU is no good.

If your options are limited to SFSU/SJSU, I'd pick the one where you will have the most fun. They are very similar academically but SJSU is more of a commuter school I think (I haven't been to SFSU much). Just my 2 cents.
