Iv'e been accepted to both but am having trouble choosing which one to go to. Both seem to be pretty good schools and I can't really find any determining factor to choose a college. The only plus that I have for Chico is that it is much closer to my girlfriends college(UC davis) but other than that I am still pretty confused. Can anyone help me choose? cons and pros of both?

    What's your major? If you're studying engineering, go to Cal Poly SLO.

    SLO is a really good school, but their biology dropout rate is 40% the first year. Maybe not the best biology department. But it is head and shoulders better than Chico.

    I'd recommend Cal Poly SLO as a friend of mines goes there and tells me the environment and courses are great (not sure about a biology major though). If the only plus is to go to Chico because of your relation with your girlfriend is the problem, then I wouldn't consider Chico at all. You can always manage to work things out and eventually meet after each semester is over with. Good Luck!

    Chico?! Really man? In almost every way shape and form Cal Poly beats Chico.

    As someone who lives in Chico, I'm gonna vouch for Cal Poly.
