    I was rejected from CSULB with a 1210/1600 and a 3.68. I also played two sports in school and one in club (volleyball and swim). I also was in theater, concert choir, ASB and Academic Decathlon. Also, I became president of my school's nursing home volunteer club. With my stats that I feel pretty comfortable with, I was heartbroken. It wast very first college response too so I became so discouraged. But then later on, I heard from my other colleges and most of them were yes's. I got into Cal Poly San Luis Obispo, UCSC and Fordham.

    I got into East Bay & SF but those are local so I really rather just go to community college.
    Just out of curiosity, why is CSULB so sought after? Is is just the local, being in Southern California or am I missing something?

    I have two cousins from Washington who've applied both were rejected - which is pretty funny since I was accepted. Anyway, I just don't see the reasoning behind going to CSULB is it really that much better than other CSU campuses?

    As an out of state student, or in ForeIN's case a non-local. Spending all that money on housing, when you could live at home just doesn't seem worth it. Also in the case of my cousins as out of state students they would be paying twice the tuition if not more when they could stay at home and attend Washington State University for less! For me CSULB is local I can stay at home and bike 5 minutes to campus doesn't get much better than that...For a bachelors unless you're Ivy League material I don't see the point of wasting all that money if (when) you can stay local. The goal is to graduate debt free!

    It's one of the better CSU's with CPSLO, CPP above it (SDSU as well but that's a different story). Most people won't get into CPSLO so they look at SDSU, CPP, or CSULB due to reputation and locale.

    lol I got rejected from SDSU too! and got accepted to Humboldt even though I think its further away.

    @Meoowww Thanks thats a good point but i was also looking at majors. East bay doesnt have much so i dont plan to transfer.

    @ ForeIN That's true I forgot about universities not offering certain majors, plus some schools are more respective in a particular field - makes sense why one would move for college.
