If you have any alternatives DON'T GO TO Cal Poly Pomona. It's impossible to get classes (most students take SIX YEARS to graduate), the administration does not care at all about students and makes everything as hard as possible, there's essentially no career counseling or resources, parking is dreadful, the library is impossible to use, many of the faculty barely speak English, and there's no social life to speak of.
It's really more like a shopping mall than a college. You fight for a parking space, go to an overcrowded class, have no where decent to hang out until your next class which is two hours later, go to another overcrowded class then get in your car and go home to your loser high school friends.
Most important, if you're a GOOD student, is that many, many students that completely lack college level skills are admitted under special programs or as transfers from community colleges. So the level that classes are taught is extremely low - - more like a high school than a real college. I've been in classes with students that could not do LONG DIVISION and a QUARTER of the GRADUATES have such poor English skills that they fail the Graduate Writing Exam, which any high school sophomore should be able to pass.One the other hand, if you're not very bright and have poor skills, you'll fit right in at Cal Poly Pomona.
There are some good programs at Cal Poly Pomona: Animal Science, some Engineering, Architecture but these are not enough to set off against the real disadvantages of attending this place.You wouldn't be happy here. Don't waste six years of your life regretting your decision.
