Default UCR or Cal Poly Pomona

Anyone go to any of these colleges. If so, what good and bad things do you have to say about them

What do you plan to do, major-wise?

Here's some good information:
USNews College Rankings
Students Review - feedback on schools from students

UCR is the lowest ranked, overall, but experiences always vary. Cal Poly @ SLO is a good place for engineering. I don't know much about CalPoly Pomona; I vaguely recall someone on HT going there, but I don't remember who.

go to a junior college, get in the honors/IGETC track, and try transferring to a "better" school. http://www.assist.org for some info on that

I went to UCR (transferred to UCSC) and went to Cal Poly Pomona for grad school in CS and I didn't like either school.

Its not like your post is gramatically correct either, so please just keep unecessary comments like that to yourself.

not worrying about capitalization and adding a period to the end of my sentence is a little bit different than purposely misspelling words like a 10th grade high school girl



personally, I would go to pomona

riverside is a shithole of a town

Pomona isn't that much better either, unless your gf is going to be living from home and commuting...

Like I said, go to a junior college like Mt. Sac, SMC, or OCC and transfer out.

Yeah, This is the best option. SMC and PCC are the two best CC's to transfer to a good UC from

A UCR and a Cal Poly education are probably going to be quite different.

UC Riverside has improved quite a bit since the early 90s, and even though everyone rags on the school, it will still provide an excellent education that the UCs are known for. You don't get to be the best public university system in the country from being mediocre. All of the UC campuses are now in the top 50, and all provide good courses and some departments really stand out. UCR has an excellent Biology department (almost every school in the country uses Neil Campbell's Biology textbook, he is a prof at UCR). If you want a well rounded, moderately competitive, academic education, then UCR is a good pick.

Cal Poly will be a little bit more practical than UCR. If your girlfriend wants to be a PT, she is going to have to balance having a good academic/research oriented biology background from UCR against a more practical/applied biology background from Pomona. Keep in mind, Cal Poly has an incredible engineering program, their biology programs are not all that great. I would advise going to UCR and doing as well as she can there, don't take a college education lightly. I transferred from UCR to UCLA and got my *** kicked my first quarter. Grades at UCR are a little harder to get than at Cal Poly, and admissions committees know this, so they are more likely to admit a 3.8 student at UCR then a 4.0 student at Cal Poly or any of the other CSUs. The CSU system is not research oriented, so they do not attract top flight faculty. Some argue that CSU profs like teaching more than UC profs, but my experience at UCR was that the classes are small, and the teachers care and are good at what they do. Also, Cal Poly is a bit more crowded, so it will be harder to get classes and graduate on time.

Pierce College is also a great school to transfer from, if you did want to go that route.

Let it be known if you go to Cal Poly; there aren't many girls, so finding cute girls become hard. I knew I should've went to UCI. =p
