Advice !!!Which one should I go for?

<p>If I got admitted to Cal Poly Pomona, UCSC , UCR, maybe UCSB or UCI
Which one should I go for?Also give me some information about the city and campus life of those schools
My major is electrical/computer engineering.</p>

<p>Also about SJSU and CSUN</p>

<p>cal poly slo :]</p>

<p>I can say from experience, that if you like doing things, SLO is absolutely the wrong place for you.</p>

<p>I prefer fast lifestyle and a lot of activies but need to be a good school too</p>

<p>wasnt SLO ranked top 3 undergrad engineering program in the us?</p>

<p>ucsb then uci for best lifestyle</p>

<p>Ya SLO #3
Pomona #15</p>

<p>Keep in mind pomona is private (not cal poly pomona)

<p>waht u mean?</p>

<p>Pomona College-private
Cal Poly Pomona- public</p>

<p>There is another Pomona University the belongs to the Claremont McKenna Colleges that is a private liberal arts college.</p>

<p>Pomona College, not university. they joke that Harvard is the Pomona College of the East. but since your cs/ee, shouldnt you be applying for harvey mudd instead?</p>

<p>nvm, he never applied to any claremont colleges.</p>

<p>Yea he just applied for CAL Poly Pomona.</p>

<p>out of those schools, SB and Irvine are the only ones I would consider going to.. then I would look into their engineering depts because i honestly dont know how good they are. but why dont u want to go to cal poly SLO?
SJSU is good for engineering too</p>

<p>SLO is top of the engineering program schools... if you get excepted there, check it out.. but its like so far from life and everything else... its up to you to decide, we cant make a decision for you. You just have to go to that area and/or campus and find out if you like it for yourself.</p>

<p>Pomona College doesn't offer an Engineering Major. It is a private, liberal arts college. You must be referring to Cal Poly Pomona, which does.</p>

<p>yea. How is Pomona city? IS that like Santa Monica , Glendale or somthing like that?</p>

<p>I live about 15 minutes from the Claremont colleges (or I used to before I transferred). Pomona College is not actually in the city of Pomona, but in Claremont. Claremont is a small, upper class city with a beautiful, but quaint downtown next to the colleges. There have been complaints in the past that the shops in downtown are too upscale to serve the average student, but in the past 6 months or so it has undergone a pretty big expansion: including an independent movie theater, restaurants, and clothing stores. I think the expanded area is trying to copy the style of Santa Monica, but it is definitely a lot smaller in scale.</p>

<p>It takes about 15-20 minutes to drive into the mountains for a nice hike, and about 45 minutes to 1 hour to drive to the beach. Los Angeles is about an hour away, where there are lots of things to do (of course). If you don't have a car, however, Claremont has pretty much dead. I do hear that the colleges put on a lot of activities for their students, so it isn't too much of a problem. Let me know if you have any more questions about the area since I lived there my practically my entire life.</p>

<p>I also went to community college literally right next to Cal Poly Pomona, so I'm familiar with that area too.</p>

<p>If you are talking about the area surrounding Cal Poly Pomona, it is pretty much dead. Cal Poly has a huge agricultural program so its surrounded by hills, cows, and horses. There is absolutely nothing going on in the area AT ALL. </p>

<p>Pomona is a pretty gross looking city-- but Cal Poly is not in that area. The atmosphere shares more in common with the city of Walnut than with Pomona.</p>
