Junior College vs Universities
Hi. It is about that time when I have to start applying for college. So far, I have applied to 6 UCs and will be applying to Cal Poly SLO. UCSC and Cal Poly Pomona are my safety schools, but as I think about my future, I begin to wonder if I would truly be happy at Pomona seeing as I have little interest in the engineering field. I am still unsure of what career path I would like to choose, but I am slightly leaning towards the medical field. Should I just not apply to Pomona and only have one safety school, and if I do not get in go to a JC? What is campus life like at JCs (ohlone preferably). I am scared that I will miss out on all the fun freshman and sophomore experiences of college life, but at the same time, aside UCB,UCD,UCSB,UCI,UCSD,Cal Poly SLO, and UCSC, where else should I apply that is a decent school in Cali (because leaving the state is too expensive).14 replies
