I am currently a rising senior in HS and want to study engineering in college. I am interested in studying EE or possibly ME/ChemE and am looking at my college options. I have a few quick questions. Please advise.
1 Is Cal Poly Pomona better or UC Riverside in engineering?
2 How hard is it to get into Cal Poly SLO as an in state applicant?
3 Is there a significant difference between Cal Poly SLO and Pomona, or is it just that SLO is more selective? Are the programs equivalent in terms of quality of education/research opportunities?
4. How hard is it to transfer into engineering at Cal Poly SLO or UCLA/UCB/other UC campuses from a California Community College? What GPA do you need to be a competitive applicant?
5. How hard is it to get into Purdue/RPI/WPI/Rice? Will a 3.3 UW GPA/2100/32 from an OOS applicant be competitive?
Thank you all for the help. Your advice is greatly appreciated.
