Did well in High School, got into Northwestern University, flunked out (technically I can go back but I really can’t afford it) due in part to family issues and just me screwing up on a grand scale, looking to go to a public school in California so that I can get a degree and a better job, where should I go?
GPA in HS was ~3.6, SAT 2310, ACT 34, but GPA at NU was around 2.0, despite that I have enough credits to be a junior.
Spent the last year or so trying to get a good job (not many of those out there) and mostly working online (built a decently successful website) trying and failing to make a career out of that.
I really don’t know anything about the UC or Cal State systems (grew up in NY), looking for advice on where people think would be good to apply as a transfer student. So far I’ve been looking at San Jose, San Diego, and a few other Cal State schools, but I really have no sense of perspective on this issue.
Happy to provide more information if necessary.
