Major: Journalism (This Major's Salary over time)

If you fancy yourself a thinking person, a budding intellectual that needs a place to develop SDSU is obscenely not that place.

If you going here because you get the MAX Pell-Grant which covers the full cost of tuition and fees and your goal is to just get practical training & knowledge(while doing your deeper wisdom based learning/growth on your free time) without the debt load of student loans then you should be fine, but expect nothing less.

Basically, if you have high-standards for yourself but low-standards for your university then you should be fine. And I'm only speaking to introverted, cultured intellectual people. If you live MORE of a social life and/or programatic life as opposed to a philosophical and introspective life you will enjoy this school… at least in the short term.

responseYou state that intellectual types will not be fulfilled at SDSU & you are entitled to your opinion. However, you yourself are a journalism major & go on to say that if someone is a brain, then "…SDSU is obscenely not that place" for them to attend. Using "obscenely" doesn't even make any sense. Even intellectual types need to master remedial English at SDSU prior to moving into a specialization such as journalism. You later say if you want an easy & cheap education, then go to SDSU & "…you should be fine, but expect nothing less." What you really meant to say was "expect nothing MORE." For a journalism major, your writing is horrific!
responseProbably one reason for the errors in this review is because SDSU is easy to get into, so you don't need any high academic skills in order to get admitted. Another reason is that the journalism program isn't any better than what you would find at any high school. Thus, don't expect any great writers to be enrolled in this program unless they're commuters and are just attending SDSU because it's close to home. SDSU seems to think that it's better than it really is.
