    My daughter got the letter today, (and the email). She is in, too. She also received an acceptance to a wonderful private christian university with a scholarship, so that gives her three choices, so far. I think she applied to nine colleges. San Diego State is a great school, not religious, of course. Early notification is a great thing. San Diego sent a small envelope.

    My daughter also received her acceptance yesterday via the on-line holiday e-card. Very exciting! For those of you who've been accepted, but aren't sure yet if you'll be attending..how late do you think you can wait to reserve a room if you're hoping to get a good housing assignment? Also if any SDSU students are on this thread..any suggestions for dorms? Thanks..

    east coaster,

    New for Fall 2008, if you send in your License Agreement by April 1st, you will be guaranteed housing. Starting in February, admitted students can apply.

    And I just recently spoke to a friend of mine who goes there, and she really recommended Cuicacalli Suites. However, if your daughter would prefer a more traditional dorm, my friend recommended Zura. And Tenochca is similar to Zura, but Zura is supposedly more fun...so whatever environment your daughter wants. Also there is Chapultepec, which she said was nicer than Zura/Tenochca, but the dorms aren't anywhere close to the other dorms, and it's not as close to everything.

    My friend waited too long for her housing agreement, and got placed in the Aztec Corner Apartments. She said they are really nice, but she wishes she was in the dorms.

    I got the email holiday card also! Surprising too, as I thought it would take until March to get a decision, as I was an OOS applicant

    SoCal18,
    thank you so much for the information..I'll share it with my daughter. Do you know if students generally live in the dorms past their freshman year? If not, how's the off campus housing situation?. Also wondering..since we haven't been to the campus yet..is there a "college town" surrounding campus?..trying to get a sense of how much a "commuter school" SDSU might be..thanks again..

    Zura was a lot of fun. Different than Tenochca, not the traditional hallways. and yes east coaster...there is a ccollege town feel. At times it seems like College and Montezuma are too busy to make a real college town feel(like SB and SLO), but come the weekend from 63rd to 54th, and all around state becomes a college town

    Your gpa is too low. The average gpa last year for admitted freshman was a 3.63. Your gpa isnt high enough.
