Cal Poly SLO has become more and more selective--crazy selective, along with CSULB. Those, I understand, are the top choice CSUs now. My son's best friend got in with high ACT scores, including a perfect 36 on the math section and nearly straight As from a no-grade-inflation high school, so you can see what the competition has come to. Brewplanner, you are lucky you got spring admission to Berkeley. Really lucky. Take it and run! JYM, you are right. The wait lists are always variable, but now is the time to lay claim to the wait list if you really want that university.
