Post edited by mamba01 on

December 2013

1. Cal State Long Beach

2. Cal State Chico

May 2013

Many of the CSUs are good in biological sciences. But each CSU has its specialty. CSU Monterey Bay, for example, has wonderful marine biology. Humbolt, which doesn't overall have the greatest reputation, has an excellent environmental science program. Here is a thread which discusses many of the CSUs:

1. Cal State Long Beach

2. Cal State Chico

4. Cal State Sacramento

5. Cal State San Bernardino

Not sure where this list came from. But if you want to go by popularity / selectivity / impaction, the five...

Top Transfer California Community Colleges? — College ...

Is there some kind of site that has the official statistics of the top transfer CCC?

From what I "heard", Orange Coast College is the first, then Glendale College(My school!), and the fourth is like Pasadena City College. Correct me if I am wrong.

Should I go to California Community college to transfer to ...

November 2010

Err...actual this may be surprising but being OOS actually works to your favor. UC's dont really give a ***** about EC's FYI (not half as much importance as they should). The problem is your GPA and SAT score. Your SAT should be at least a 2200 to make up for that GPA, if not higher.

Just remember: For Berkeley, getting in is relatively easy, staying is whats hard. The college has crazy grade deflation. If you cant even pull off a 4.0 (weighted) in high school, theres no way you're going to survive in either Berkeley or LA...

What is American University like? — College Confidential

Can anyone tell me about life at American university? I'm thinking of adding it to my list as an option that may give me a decent amount of merit aid (as I am above average numbers wise) and what I've been reading about it has me intrigued!

-I know it has some strong programs and some weak ones, I'm thinking of majoring in...

Small engineering colleges? — College Confidential

February 2006

>>I would actually argue that ABET certification is a very minor consideration. Plenty of highly prestigious and rigorous programs are not certified, and plenty of no-name programs are certified. For example, the bioengineering programs at MIT and Berkeley are not certified. Materials Science at both Berkeley and Stanford are not certified. Yet I think very few people would dispute that these some of the top programs in the country, certification or not.<<

ABET certification can be very important or quite unimportant, depending on your field. No US state...
