does going to a CSU ruin chances for grad school at a UC?
I never thought I'd be asking this question, since most people (whether counselors, fellow classmates, or just random ppl online) have always said the opposite, but I just read someone's rant about California's supposed "master plan for education" and how it ensures that students going to CSU's have almost no chance of getting into graduate/professional schools, especially those in California (ahem, the UC's). This can't be true, right??? I mean, it was just an online rant (and from Collegeconfidential, at that) but why would someone just make something like that up?
I'm specifically interested in law school (any of the UC law schools would be nice) and the one thing that's been drilled into my head ad nauseum from past and present law school students is that 90 percent of law school admissions is undergrad gpa and lsat score, and where you went to school matters little. But this person has me freaking out!!!
Can someone shed light on this?
On a personal note...several of my friends who went to top UC's for undergrad (berkeley, LA) ended up at Sacramento State (a CSU) for their master's...it can't be that bad right??!?
