I just checked the status of my SDSU application and here's what I found:
Thank you for applying to San Diego State University. After carefully reviewing your application, we are unable to offer you admission for the fall 2005 semester. Admission decisions are very difficult given the very strong applicant pool. Each year, SDSU receives many more applications than can be accommodated based on the number of admission spaces available for the fall semester.
We received over 49,000 applications for approximately 4,150 freshman and 4,250 transfer openings in our fall 2005 class. The average grade point average for admitted transfer students was 3.16. All decisions were based on the information you reported on your CSU application and the SDSU Supplemental Application and were made with great care. Reasons for not meeting SDSU criteria may include:
Not having the minimum grade point average required for your major
Not completing the Transfer Supplemental Application
Not having specific courses required for your major
Not having the minimum grade point average if you are located outside of SDSU's service area
Not submitting a separate application to the nursing program (if your major is nursing)
Not completing or successfully passing a mandatory audition (if your major is music or dance)
It looks to me that they really emphasize on GPAs and Required courses, I'm surprised because I don't fall under any of the statements listed above.
Trasfer student - Santa Ana College
64 Units (60 is the min.)
Will have IGETCI and all the CSU requirements done by this semester
All required Courses for my major-completed
-Major- Geography, not many courses required, but I completed all with As
I must admit that I'm really disappointed because I also applied to Cal, UCLA, UCSB and CSULB. Somehow I thought of CSULB as my safety (along with SDSU). I was feeling good about my chances on Cal and UCLA since my major is not that competitive, but I guess I was wrong.
Oh well.....all I can do now is wait
