    I just got accepted to Long Beach State but I am a transfer student. I started at a community college prior to transferring and I'm an Aerospace Engineering major with a 3.5 GPA. From my knowledge engineering isn't impacted at Long Beach. I was going to pursue a degree at Cal Poly Pomona but I had to wait an additional semester for that. Anyway, finishing on time will be hard. By the time I got to register, which was after their SOAR orientation, many classes were full and the ones that were available would overlap others. This will slow me down by at least one semester. I also did not know that there's upper division general ed which I have to complete too on top of two classes that did not transfer. I am two weeks away from my first day at Long Beach. It seems like a school that accepts a lot of students from the local community colleges (Long Beach City College has an agreement with them).

    I keep hearing that they got over 70k applicants a year for just a few thousand spots. With that admissions rate I don't understand why the average SAT score at CSULB is just 1026 which is just about the national average. Any insights? Are they selective?

    CSULB got that high of an amount of applicants because it's a nice affordable option for many people who can't afford UC or private school tuition. The CSU system was made so that each of the 23 campuses could take in students in their city/service area. With a minimum GPA of 2.0 to apply, each CSU is "required" to accept those students in their service area who meet this requirement. As a result, the average GPA and SAT scores (tend to correlate with each other) of those who matriculate are usually lower, and thus so is selectivity. The rest of the spots are given to those outside the service area, and these students that do get accepted tend have higher stats than those inside the service area since these spots are few in number.
