    The Cal states admit by major and eligibility index.
    EI= (CSU/UC GPA (capped weighted) x 800) + (SAT Math + EBRW). For Chico state Business, you want around a minimum EI of 3700+ for the best chances.

    If your CSU GPA is 2.7, you would need an SAT score of 1540 to make the EI threshold of 3700. I would say it will be a tough admit.

    Nursing at all CSU's is impacted and you cannot apply as a Freshman to the Nursing school. You need to complete all pre-req and co-req courses before applying:
    1. All prerequisite and co-requisite courses must be completed with a grade of “C” or better.
    2. The following courses must be completed within the last 7-years. Anatomy, Physiology, Chemistry, Microbiology, and Statistics.
    3. The cumulative grade point average (GPA) for all college-level work must be 1) a minimum of 3.0 overall or 2) a minimum of 3.0 in the last 60 academic units.
    • If a course has been taken more than once, all grades for that course will be averaged. There are two exceptions 1) Oral Communication and 2) Chemistry. For oral communication you can take small group or public speaking—the higher grade of the two courses will be counted. For chemistry you can take general chemistry, integrated chemistry, inorganic chemistry or organic chemistry. If you take different types of chemistry, the higher grade will be counted. If you repeat the same type of chemistry course, those grades will be averaged.
    • The university will not accept courses from the University of Phoenix.

    4. Co-Requisites - There are four co-requisite courses that must be completed prior to the end of the first semester to progress in the nursing program. It is highly recommended that all these courses be completed prior to entering the nursing program. The four co-requisites are:
    • Nutrition
    • Child Development, Human Development, of Human Life Span
    • Principles of Psychology
    • Principles of Sociology or Cultural Anthropology

    Chico is probably a bit out of reach for both programs unless you go to a CC first.

    For Biz, Sac and SF are good targets. Nursing is just too competitive at CA publics for you to be a good candidate for any of them without a stellar performance from a CC.

    So If I were to just want to do business I should try sac or sf? Not Chico?

    My guess is that Chico is a no but, I'd apply to all 3 and see what happens. The admission threshold varies somewhat every year based on the applicant pool. the only way to know for sure is to submit an application.
    good luck.
