Might I remind members of the forum rules: “Our forum is expected to be a friendly and welcoming place, and one in which members can post without their motives, intelligence, or other personal characteristics being questioned by others."


“College Confidential forums exist to discuss college admission and other topics of interest. It is not a place for contentious debate. If you find yourself repeating talking points, it might be time to step away and do something else… If a thread starts to get heated, it might be closed or heavily moderated.”

I will further suggest a reread of Terms of Service, in particular Rule 6 - discussion of rules and/or moderator actions is not allowed.

Since the flags are already flying on this thread and it’s early in the day, I’m putting this on slow mode. If we can’t get back to the original poster’s question, this thread will be closed.

I’m might be time to wind this puppy down. I think the OP has received a lot of good input. At the end of the day though, nothing will substitute for walking on campus and talking to students and faculty.

Good luck to your student in their quest to find the right school for them!


I’m white and my husband is not. We lived in SLO for about two years several years ago. He says to this day that he never experienced as much racism (especially micro aggressions) anywhere else in the state. He hated the entire Central Coast. I, however, loved it there.

So take that anecdote for what you will.
