My name is Mike and I'm currently a junior (well now a senior I guess) in high school. I'm in the class of '06 and will be graduating next year. I currently live in TX, but I have moved a lot throughout my life. At the beginning of this year, I began to look at colleges. SDSU was and still is my first choice. I am going to look at the campus this summer (later this month actually) and from what I can see, it looks great.
Furthermore, I have a couple of questions for those that are currently attending SDSU. From what I've seen hear, it seems hard to get into the college. I have a 3.7 GPA, have made A's and B's (I've also taken Spanish3 and pre-ap pre-calculus) throughout high school, and will be taking a class to get ready for the SAT (I'm taking it later this summer). I play sports as well. What are my chances in general? I know they look at different things, but have you found that it might be hard for an out-of-state student like myself to get into this college? I really want to get in, because I feel it's the best college that fits my criteria. Oh, and I was planning to major in Business Administration, and I know SDSU is known for their good business program.
Other things: I will most likely be taking a car to SDSU if I get in. How far are the closest beaches? How far is Petco Park? Basically, is the campus close to things like the mall,etc.? For people under 21, do you usually have to find parties or is it easy to get into clubs and things?
I'm still uncertain if a friend of mine will be applying for SDSU, but how easy is it to meet new people? This campus and the surrounding area seems to be great, so it shouldn't be too hard.
My real love is baseball, and I was hoping to get a job with the Padres, Angels or Dodgers sometime during college.
Anyway, I'd love to hear from those who are attending SDSU.
