    Generally Fullerton has the better reputation. In general though, everything depends pon the major. If you want a job in Orange County or LA though, local schools tend to be given extra credence.

    CSUF will be REALLY impacted in the near future. It's bad now with the budget cuts(main reason why Im going to UCIrvine over CSUFullerton or CSULongBeach) and it'll get worse shortly. CSULB is only accepting 7-8% of it's applicants this year. This means the rejects will probably go to fullerton(which geographically is the closest college and receives a lot of the same applicants as CSULB) expect turmoil.

    I'm not sure about poli sci or psych though, I'm more of a business/econ guy which CSUF is fairly strong in. google it.
