Date: Nov 04 2006
Major: English (This Major's Salary over time)
There's a lot to like about CPP. The campus is a great mixture of old and new, and it is very green. Unfortunately it is located in the middle of nothing. Pomona is a dump (literally- the dump is across the street). If you're an Engineering, Agriculture, Architecture, or Science-oriented major, this place is for you. If you're anything else, you may find the available courses somewhat lacking. As an English major, I love the faculty, but there is simply not enough course variety (nor is an English Degree from CPP very valuable). No, I didn't start in English, I left Engineering because I was not particularly talented in that field. Also, the Math department is horrendous. In that department, 9/10 teachers speak poor English, or have the most incomprehensible accents. In January, I am transferring to UCI.
