Cal Poly Pomona receives largest donation in Cal State University system history.

<p>Great job Cal Poly!</p>

<p>Cal</a> Poly Pomona receives $42-million cash grant, largest in Cal State history | L.A. NOW | Los Angeles Times</p>

<p>do you think that money will help get the remaining people off the waitlist?</p>

<p>If anyone is still on a waitlist, they should just assume they didn't get in! </p>

<p>I hope they use the proceeds wisely, like helping out students in need and raising retention and graduation rates. I am not sure they can use any money to increase classes or not, but that would surely help both the under represented groups and the university as a whole.</p>

<p>some people got accepted after they were denied....which is kind of ridiculous since there r people on the waitlist. so you can't say for sure that the waitlist people wont get in so it would be a little nicer if you were more optimistic</p>

<p>I am just being "realistic". Don't tell me you're still waiting! Not a single post recently has been from a person still on the wait list. If anyone is still waiting, I hope they would have practiced their options by now!</p>

<p>I seriously doubt there's room at Cal Poly Pomona. If you didn't get in at this point, enroll at a community college and reapply in one year. Good luck.</p>

<p>well i had fullerton as my back up and i got in on friday to cal poly so my optimism worked after all</p>

<p>@amcarder,
Congratulations on getting in. It is unprecedented that someone would get accepted in the middle of summer. Just curious, what's your major and stats?</p>

<p>thank you! I had 3.5 at my high school and i took 5 classes at the local community college while in hs and had a 3.45 average there.
and my major is enginering technology.</p>

<p>As I understand it the windfall is to be used for various populations that need a boost to make it through college; vets returning to school, foster kids who have 'aged' out of the Foster Care system, first in family to go to college applicants and the like. I congratulate CPP on such a wonderful gift!</p>

<p>@amcarder,
that's at least higher than last years average and technology isn't typically an impacted major, tho all the rules are out the window this year. I guess your situation just goes to illustrate the changes Cal Poly Pomona is going through this year. I think it's a combination of budget cuts and hopefully an increase in demand for our campus.</p>

<p>@oaksmom,
I am glad CPP is being recognized for not only providing a good public education, but also for taking their part in the CSU's mission to educate as much of the California citizenry as possible, no matter their social or historic background. I've heard many people griping about how this will be a big handout for people who are not like them. Ultimately a well educated and funded student body will be good for everyone, including ALL current student and alumni who will have much to gain from our newly elevated prestige.</p>
