I got admitted into both colleges with a declared major in Business Administration Marketing. I'm planning on also minoring in Journalism. Which school should I attend?

    i would probably say cal poly, but i think it depends on what you're looking for as far as enviroments, they're both uniquely different

    Poly is more prestigious, but Marketing is such a huge major. You might be better off going to SDSU, it's well known for its business programs. Poly is strong for Engineering. SDSU is my brother's alma mater, he was a Finance emphasis, and now he works for Vanguard (a less known investing company, but controls more money than the Russian economy). If I were you, I would go to SDSU, because my brother has told me how rigorous the Business program is. Also, consider your location. If I don't get into SLO, I might end up having to choose between SDSU and CSULA; I'm from San Diego, so I'll most likely go there to save a little money on housing and live with my family. Take everything in consideration, look at the schools programs, research organizations that could probably benefit you, see if their are local firms that you could intern at while you study, and weigh in the costs. Hope you make a sound decision, and Congrats for making it into a couple of the most competitive CSUs.
