Admissions Advice

Which college should I go to?

I got accepted to both Cal Poly Pomona, San Diego State, and San Jose State as a Mechanical Engineering major.

I got waitlisted to UC Davis, CO mines, and Cal Poly slo. I sent an appeals letter to UC Irvine and UC Santa Barbara which I think are very well written and compelling.

Which school should I pick given each scenario? (if you would like add why)

1. CP Pomona vs SDSU vs SJSU

2. UC Davis vs CO Mines vs CP Slo

3. UCSB vs UCI

4. Winner of 1 vs winner of 2

5. winner of 1 vs winner of 2 vs winner of 3

Thank you so much

Hey there @BRL10!

I cant tell you which schools I would pick, but I can't tell you which schools you'd like. I think it really depends on what's the best fit for you.

Factors to consider are:

- Location (proximity to home/family, campus in a city or a more suburban area, etc.)

- School type (large, medium, small, etc.)

- Academics (programs offered that fit your interests)

- Clubs and activities (or what's near the school that you could do)

- Socially (what kind of community does your ideal school have?)

- Cost (compare financial aid, scholarships, and net price)

In short, I can't tell you which school you should go to. I'm just some stranger on the internet who knows nothing about you. Only you can make this choice.
