Possible California schools for an out of stater

<p>Are there any california schools with Journalism programs that are worth looking at. I really want to go to a school in California that won't cost me an arm and a leg. Here are my stats:</p>

<p>I have taken all honors and AP classes whenever available throughout high school.
GPA: 4.13 (only AP classes weighted)
AP Biology: 5
AP US History: 5</p>

<p>SAT I: 1410 (700 Math, 710 Verbal)</p>

3 years JV and V Softball
2 years V Golf
4 years in Drama Magnet and performed in many school plays - was a Governor's Honors Semi-Finalist in Drama
3 years in film club
2 years in National Honor Society
1 year volunteer for Big Brothers/Big Sisters
2 years on school newspaper staff (1 year as In-Depth Editor) - won award at summer journalism conference for "Most Insightful Observationist"
2 years on student government</p>

<p>What do you think? Any ideas on California schools with Journalism programs that could be less expensive than private schools? Any ideas on schools with Journalism that I could be almost assured of a merit scholarship?</p>

<p>Unfortunately, the UC schools don't apply to you because although they are still relatively cheap for out-of-state, they usually don't give merit scholarships to out-of-staters like private schools do.</p>

<p>do I have a chance at earning merit scholarships of any kind at USC or Pepperdine?</p>
