    GPA is on the low side, it might hurt you. Average SAT scores though. I would say a low reach.

    SJSU -high match
    CSU Sacramento - match
    Sonoma State - match
    CSU Fresno - high match, maybe low reach
    Humboldt - match, probably in.

    if you leave near any of these schools, you might have a higher chance for like sjsu.

    SDSU is getting harder to get into every year, and since you're out of their service area with an OK gpa/SAT score, I'd call it a reach.

    You should have better luck at the other CSUs you mentioned, however. I think you'd be able to get into most of them.

    SDSU's a reach, I got rejected with 520M/610CR (1130) and 3.6 weighted GPA. It's a pretty tough schools to get into. You'll probably get into the rest of the CSU's you mentioned though (: SD, Cal Poly SLO and LB are the really tough ones.

    It could happen, but I got rejected with a 1220 SAT and 3.5 CSU GPA. Those somehow got me into Cal Poly SLO, though, so it's cool.
