Applied just to see where I could get in. Definitely not attending since there is no way I am going to pay the full 60K+ when I can go to a great state school. Sucks that transfers can't defer enrollment. I could pull the scholarship money I would need in that time-decided to apply at the last minute.
If I didn't have to consider cost, I rather go to BU rather than UCB, and UCLA where California CC students have priority and pay instate tuition (plus they don't even look at HS transcripts.)
