Just a few questions: Internationals, Architecture, and Financial Aid

Apparently, according to this thread:http://talk.collegeconfidential.com/cal-poly-san-luis-obispo/599965-how-many-international-students-calpoly.html?highlight=international, there are only 0.1% of the student body are internationals. I can't seem to find the info on the site so could someone verify if that sounds about right?

Lets just say that that stat is around about right...
Is it because Cal Poly SLO doesn't accept many internationals? Or do less internationals apply compared to other colleges?

Also, how is the finanical aid? Especially for internationals? Is a large portion of the aid loans?

I've heard/read some good things about the architecture program at SLO. Is it very competitive to get into? I know architecture itself is generally a competitive major to gain admission into but does anyone know the acceptance rate to the architecture school?

That's all...for now. xD I'd really appreciate it if someone could help me out here. ^^

    As it is a California state school, the financial aid is not much. I'm not sure why there aren't so many internationals. But it has one of the best architecture programs.
