    It's cool, it's nice to see someone who enjoys what he's majoring in. And you seem to have a well understanding as well as background in the architecture/CE aspect of things. Truthfully, I'm glad I went to a CC first because if I didn't like what I was doing I could easily switch what I wanted to do and take a new structured set of classes, even though It'd be longer, but It's opened my eyes a lot, and I just love math, physics, a little bit of chem I guess but not too much haha. I just hope though whoever looks at my application that they realize that I put some classes that I couldn't fit into there primary class for example physics in the major related course. I mean I think it was okay since if you got on transfer selections for CE physics is under the required classes for that major. But as i said earlier we should defiantly meet up if we both get accepted to SLO.

    Sure, I'll most likely be at Open House if I get in or not, because of Design Village. The CE and Arch students definitely need to keep in touch, because we might be working together some day.

    long story short, Cal Poly SLO doesn't do transfer agreements with anyone. tust me if there was one i'd be all over it.

    It's just gotten very annoying, living down here in SLO i've met so many of the other students and there are so many of them in for things like engineering or architecture that just don't know why they are doing it. They either drop, change majors or go through with it for no reason. Whereas yeah i spent my first year at my CC slacking, but then i really clicked and i've been working by butt off, get rid of my first 2 semesters i would have a 3.5, probably better. Hell, last semester i took dynamics, and both strengths of materials classes and got B+, A, A respectfuly. Plus took welding and psycology and got A's in those too. But those are grades that poly doesn't get to see. and wont help me.

    There were 2 girls from Poly in my strengths class, one archy and one civil, barely could do the statics. Just kills me that they are where i want to be and i could tutor them and not be there.

    I just hate myself for that first year, it's what's gonna kill me if anything does.

    Oh and about the avg. GPA being a 3.38. That year i knew a few people who got in for engineering (civil) with 2.5's. so if you have a 3.0 with all required classes done, you should be in a very good position. That's the GPA for all the transfers, not just engineering and architecture. No offence, but there are some majors where the material just isn't the same. Where I am going through semesters with 3 or 4 solid major related courses, multiple labs in a semester. There are some students taking bio classes that 90% of which i learned in high school.

    yeah thanks for the information robert, 2.5 seems low for civil. I will tell you this, you and I are in the same boat i too kind of slacked first year but doesn't seem as bad as you were, the last 2 years where i really decided to want to become a civil engineer i quit the slacking and what not, and this year so far has been phenominal for me. I hope both of us get into the engineering college. I'm sure with you going to cuesta you have a shot, since majority of transfers are from that school. What major are you in again? mechanical?

    yeah I'm an ME.

    I know 2.5 sounds a bit low i know, but it's what I was told about the guy, He transfered after my first year at SRJC. It was kinda funny, gave us all hope :P

    But yeah, i think i got flat C's my first year except 2 B's, one in first semester physics and the other in my engineering graphics. Chem, calc, english, and a others i just didn't put in the effor for homework or anything. But that's all behind me now.

    yeah especially for me since im a CE lol. But yeah i have all the pre-reqs done plus much more, so hopefully the pre-reqs get me through. A bunch of my friends are majoring in ME, so far only one has gotten accepted as a transfer, and 3 more are still waiting to hear back. My friend and I are the outcasts since were civil majors but oh well haha. How is cuesta?

    I spoke to my friend. She got in for CE a couple weeks ago. She had a 3.6GPA and all the classes for transfer credit. She has an AS in Physics and Math, and Pres. of the Engr. Club at my JC.

    RobertMW, I understand what you mean about people in CE and Arch that really don't take it seriously. What ****es me off about other Arch. majors at my school is that many of them don't take the structures classes seriously or they don't take the designing seriously. How they hell can you be inspired to design multiple simple square floorplans, seriously? There are a couple bright lights down here, but most think that Arch. is a load of bull. I heard that one of our students went out to UNLV. She was awesome in designing, but when she was at my JC, she didn't take structures seriously, so she failed up at UNLV. These committees need a better decision making process that determines the students that will really go the distance. I don't mind people changing their majors, that's cool, but people need to understand that CE is more than math and Arch is more than art. Respect your major.

    When do you think the next wave of notifications are going to take place infinity? And i completely understand what your saying, I don't do engineering just because i like math, but because I want to design things, and make things safe for people to walk over or drive on. I really hope I hear this week. I was told that i was going to hear within the next 7-10 days when i called friday. It was weird.

    I hope you hear something too. I have come to terms with my situation, I'll hear by at least April 1. From what that officialtold you, that sounds about right. Early march is usually when acceptances come out (for SDSU and Pomona at least). We'll see. I hope the transfers here soon (except the Arch students, let 'em suffer! hahaha).

    haha, i feel sorry for you having to wait till april 1st. But yeah she even told me that if i didn't hear anything by march 2nd to call her, because you should hear regardless of a decision within the next 7-10 days and that was this past friday so hopefully its true. I'm hoping what robert said was true about some of his friends got in with a 2.5 as a CE major. That seems way low, but anything is possible. Have you heard from anywhere else yet?

    Got a letter in the mail about my Waitlisted status. Might not hear whether I'm in until mid-May. Blah!

    If anyone wants to know about Design Village, the site just came up today:

    Design Village

    We have to take in consideration the existence of zombies. Weird, huh?
