I really think that the CSUs should be prohibited from giving admission priority to applicants simply because they live in the vicinity of the campus. Remember, SJSU is a California STATE University,financed by all taxpayers in California, not a San Jose/Santa Cruz County University.
<p>Very well put Lemaitre. I completely agree! I just found out today from CSULB that I was admitted (I am an Electrical Engineering major). When the message said "congratulations, you have......" I breathed a huge sigh of relief (this being my so called "safety" school). Now with a transferable gpa of 3.85 with 84 sem. units completed, I should not have had to really let out that sigh :rolleyes: ...this just goes to show how ridiculous this notion of making univeristy accessible to most has become.</p>
<p>CSULB practices the WORST kind of unfair and partial treatment. They GUARANTEE admission for some no matter what (even if you have a 2.0) if you're from the IMMEDIATE area (that is only 3 specific community colleges in the long beach general area). They don't even cut any slack to people who are "somewhat local" (i.e. in Torrance, which is just a hop and a skip away :rolleyes: ). Last year my friend who goes to community college with me (same major as mine) did not get in to CSULB...and she had a 3.34 gpa!!! Now you can see why I was concerned!</p>
