I didn't do muchJul 16 2018Computer Science
I didn't do much. I transferred from another university since the programs there were severely impacted. Many call this university "Second Chance U".
ACT: 27 Male
This school is a joke to get inApr 12 2018Other
This school is a joke to get in. As long as you weren't a failure in college I promise you'll probably do fine.
It honestly isn't too hard to get inJun 02 2015English
It honestly isn't too hard to get in. I had a pretty high GPA in high school, but many of my friends had anywhere from a 2.4-3.0+ and were still able to get in. Remember, the school is now impacted, though, so it may be harder.
ACT: 32 Male
It is a fairly average school, so don't feelOct 01 2014Other
It is a fairly average school, so don't feel like you have to be a 4.0 student to attend. Make sure that you try hard in High School, and if you are an average student with a great intrest in the school then you will most likely be admited. Make sure your personal statement stands out, be original and be yourself.
It is fairly easy to be accepted hereMay 04 2013History/Histories (art history/etc.)
It is fairly easy to be accepted here. Do not think that since you are a B or C student that this is your only option. Try and go to Santa Cruz, somewhere were the school takes its students seriously. 17 weeks takes a long time, and your teachers will procrastinate as much as you do, making you feel like its a bunch of worthless time. Truth is, I do as little work as possible to pass, because the busy work makes you feel like your in prison and it gets you nowhere. Don't come here unless you are from a shitty town/school, otherwise its a downgrade in education. Marina is a shit town as well.
