Bump. Accepted to UCR and SFSU, so far. Both of those schools were a couple of my safeties, though. Still waiting on CSULB, UCI, UCD, SDSU, CSUF and SJSU. The wait is killing me... ;_;

SJSU should be a sure in depending on where you're from. Everyone I know that applied got accepted, but that was probably bad on SJSU's part. They ran out of dorms, so they threw the rest of the students who were dorming into the HYATT hotel. But hope them acceptance letters start flowing in bruh

^ I appreciate it, brotha! Thanks. But yeah, SJSU is pretty low on my list of potential schools. I'm not too concerned about whether or not I get accepted there (knock on wood, though). The only schools that I'm really worried about in terms of acceptances are LB State, Irvine and SDSU. The rest of the schools are just whatever.

LB state is a really good school. Im thinking about transferring there from Long Beach Community College but im not sure. Ive been in L.B. my whole life and i'd rather not go there (even though it's one of the best CSU's. It'd be much easier for me to get in there though than you. Good luck with that

Going to a community college and parents verbally destroyed me. Sall good doe. People make CC to be awful and looked down but I actually like it and it's a good place to start off IMO.


Why would they be mad about that? it's cheaper and you can get all your general ed out of the way then decide on a university. My friend went to community college for all his general ed, then went to UC Berkeley for his degree, then UC San Diego for medical school. No shame in starting at community college, I actually wish I would have because around here the classes sizes are significantly smaller and it's a lot cheaper. Taking biology at the CC here in town would've meant being in a class with about 30 students, at the university I went to I was in a bio class with about 200. Plus if you really buckle down at CC and get really good grades, you can transfer just about anywhere to finish up your degree.

i'm the best mayne, i deed it

Well if you're paying for it then it shouldn't concern them. Best thing to do is get good grades, transfer to a good university, and prove them wrong smokeyface

Assuming you are transferring? if you got above a 3.25gpa you should be good for sdsu. it also depends what you chose as your major during the application process since some majors are impacted. sdsu & csulb are very different from uci though imo. they are all pretty decent academically.

^ u gotta have at least a 3.7 for berkley to even stand a chance these days.



^ Truth. A few years ago I got into a top 10 school (affirmative action plus strong application) but was rejected at UCLA (which is odd, because even though my UC GPA was only a 3.7 I had a SAT score in the top 25% for applicants) and waitlisted at Irvine. I didn't even apply to Berkeley cause I knew I had no chance. I know a good amount of people there, including a girl in Haas.


Btw, I went to school in the Valley for anyone who cares.

transferred to CSUN last fall from DVC. technically a commuter school but its packed and has a beautiful campus. just got a new rec center that shits on life itself (rock climbing walls, weights and cardio stuff on the first floor. 5-6 bball/vball courts on the second floor, and a track with more cardio and a lounge on the third floor)

joined a frat and life is good except they need to file for impaction cause i know hella ppl who arent graduating this year, receiving their financial aid, and/or arent even attending this semester because initially registering and adding classes is damn near impossible. im taking bullshit classes just to be in school and so i can stay active in my frat, plus all the bad females are on campus

Dang. I just received a rejection from CSULB through e-mail. That stings. LB State was my top choice. Sigh...I guess I just have to suck it up and move on. On to the next...

how the fuck do you get rejected from LB? i've seen semi retarded kids get accepted into LB..

Lol, that's what everyone thinks. It might have been that easy to get into LB when you were still a senior, but times have changed. Back then, anyone that could breathe was accepted to the higher-tier CSUs like SD and LB, but clearly that's not the case now, as they have tightened up on admissions. Since tuition is rising (in California, especially), CSUs are becoming impacted and currently do not have enough spots to admit qualified students 'cause of budget cuts, so students who would have gotten in easily a few years ago are now being turned down.

And for those who were curious about my stats: my GPA was a 3.25 (I slacked off a lot in the past couple of years), my SAT superscore is a 1780, and my ACT Composite score is a 27. Nothing special, I suppose, but I've been a pretty apathetic student. I thought I would have been accepted, too, but I guess my GPA and the fact that I don't live in the surrounding area killed my chances.

Fo real? Lucky-ass nigga. I got butt-raped by UChicago's tuition a year and a half ago to the point where I had to leave school, and my family is still feeling the financial aftershock today. I'd love to be in your place.

Dang I'm sorry to hear that man. My number one was USC, but I doubt the money they give will come anywhere near to a full-ride. I still get fafsa on top of that, so I'm set for all four years if I go to Howard.

I went to a private school so tuition is the same regardless of residency. I was declined at UCLA (my #1 choice) and I wasn't going to fuck with UC Irvine after I got off the waitlist when I realized that school had no niggas. If I could do it again I would've bared through community college at home just to go to UCLA in 2 years.

Yeah, USC caters to the upper middle-class and athletes. The few people I know who went there are: a girl who is in one of the 2nd-tier sororities (all the first tier ones cater to old money types) and another friend who recieves a discount on tuition because his mother works there.


I don't know much about the HBCU experience to tell you, but for greater insight you should watch School Daze by Spike Lee. He produced those right before Do The Right Thing and Malcolm X, it's a musical with a lot of style to it, very entertaining and enlightening.
