I've noticed that a lot of the comments focus on how SDSU is a commuter school. I'm sorry to break it to the out of state people, but ALL the colleges in SD are commuter schools; the county has five major freeways running through it so it's pretty common to drive from school to the sea, or out to the desert. As has been mentioned by others previously, the college is in the middle of a funding crunch and they only admitted 6000 students this year, too many of which think the place is Arizona State with a beach. If anything, the party school mentality of the freshmen is a major stumbling block they need to remove. You will need to apply yourself, but not as much as at a UC school. If you still want to go, remember that pretty much every major is impacted, all the basic courses are jammed to the gills, and that certain courses are only taught once a year. It would be best to go to community college before you hit this place and that goes for

in-state and out-of-state students unless you have the maximum amount of grants. Finally, if you come here recognize that the school is carrying a lot more students than it was in the 1990s, so it's actually a pretty crowded campus; watch out for the swarms of pedestrians if you're driving, and if you live on campus the dorms will be tiny.
