I'm here now due to a limited budget. I might transfer after my second year. Most people go home on the weekends but I work on campus on the weekends so it doesn't really effect me. Other schools definitely party harder. Parties mostly happen on Thursday and Saturday. I tend to stick to the house parties as opposed to the frats. The house parties are solid though. You just have to know people to know where they are. Went over to Santa Clara on the Friday before Halloween and it was definitely more smackin. School's pretty easy right now to be honest. Only problem is balancing 5 days of work with everything else in life. It's probably the 3rd best CSU to go to overall but there are many other schools that would be more fun than this.

glad you like it. im a fan of house parties too. going to a frat party and not being in a (or that) frat is just not the biz
i know a lot of ppl just end up going to the bars/clubs downtown though since you are literally right there

^ If you wanna go to school in cali, you can get into every csu with those scores and probably most of the lower UC's as well

CSU QUESTION:
If i took summer classes at a CC to cover the credit for 2 D's, do I still have to average in the D's into my GPA or do i only average in my new summer school grades?

I am in a similar situation. I am retaking a class that I had a D in and I'm going to get an A/B in this class now. I want to say that they do, but I'm not entirely sure. I'm pretty sure they replace the grade with the higher grade. However, private universities have a different policy which factor the average of the two grades.

how many people actually take 2 years or less to get out of a community college and into a college of their choice? I see way too many people taking "breaks" from school and needing to take at least 3 years to transfer out

I myself only took 2 years and I may not be going to a college of my choice but I'm going to a decent college with a good program in my area of emphasis. However, it's understandable to take up to 3 years especially here in California considering the limited availability of classes to choose from and limited seats. It is possible to complete in two years; you just got to work at it.

yeah that's what I'm trying to accomplish. I'm on my way to a 3.2 gpa -.- with 15.5 credits this semester. I'm just wanna finish in 2 years and get out of community college. the environment is so... boring. where do you plan on going to college? I'm hoping to pick up my slack and getting into UCLA or the decent UC's

Answer: For CSUs both grades will show on your transcript, however only the higher grade will be factored into your GPA.

*** EDIT: Repeat/Delete courses must be taken at the same university, where the original course was taken.

I put 3.56 down on my apps with a D haha but it's in the process of being made up. I only applied to two CSU's Cal Poly Pomona and CSUN. I'm not going to bother with UC's cause the only one I want to get into is hard as hell and the major is impacted. I feel you. I hate my CC and I can't wait to get outta here. Good luck!

I'm sort of in the same situation. I retook only one semester of class that I got a D in, and made up the score and got an A. Im still not sure whether I need to 1.) fill in the "Fall" box (cause that was the semester i made up) with the original score and right below it put the A in the "summer section, or 2.) leave the box blank and put my made up grade in the summer section or 3.) put the made up grade in the Fall box anyway since my school accepts it and calculates that score into the GPA instead of the D.

I wasn't implying that I would have stayed the extra year to follow the pack. I want to get out as soon as possible, but seeing so many people falling into the cult of taking breaks and screwing up at community college gets me wondering is it only people in my city or others as well. Well, I'm considering in taking TAP program at my school. UCLA is a long shot for me, but it's not bad to reach for the stars. Mid UC's are what I'm pragmatically going to end up at.

уυиgѕнυи, good luck bro. those are some premiere schools
