Just thought I would throw this out there. Would love any input on other schools that might be a good fit. SDSU is #1 choice (we are in Cal but not local) with U of Oregon in #2 spot. This is my sons current list of schools he plans on applying to:
(Must haves- Club ice hockey (not too crazy high level) and good business program ideally with lots internship opportunities.) Cant see accounting or Econ as that’s not his interest. Im thinking Bus Admin with emphasis is real estate, entrepreneurship, global business ?? He really doesn’t know what he wants to focus on but didn’t like Micro or Macroecon and didn’t like financial or managerial acct. So lots of options in the Bus dept is a huge plus. NOT looking for a crazy competitive environment, looking for a place that kids support each other.

I really liked the idea of the SALT program at Arizona. Stats are good but not much of a traditional learner. Needs hands on/ project based/ real life learning experiences. Pulled some of these schools off of Dyslexia Advantage. Needs the Club ice hockey to connect and its something he loves. Although he could tech finish degree in 2 years due to the AA and meeting gen ed, I can see him stretching out the upper level classes over and extra year or so to make them more manageable.
Would be grateful for any input.
For cost, we are trying to stay as low as possible. Will not qualify for need based aid. Hoping for merit and he has 14k covered each year through another program.
