Hi! I'd really prefer to go to colleges in CA, but I want to have some back-ups in NJ, just in case. If I do attend college in nJ, it'll only be for a year or two, so I need somewhere where I won't have any problems transferring (I hear these stories often). I live in Bergen County, but BCC isn't exactly a great school, so I'd prefer not to go there. Rutgers has a good in-state tuition, and it's a good school, especially for social work. I'm also considering NJCU, which is a good school, and great for me because I'd prefer to be in a city. But, I'm not sure if these schools offer associate's degrees, or if they offer the kind I would need for social work.
If you want to recommend any other schools, my GPA is a 3.4/3.5, and SAT is 1410. (I'm retaking the SAT after tutoring, so I'll probably receive a 1500-1600, maybe better). I also have a few extracurriculars, and some volunteer experience. I'm starting a part-time job in two weeks at Subway, too.
