Pros and Cons: Comparing Colleges SDSU vs UC Davis

22 Mar

Over the weekend I attended an Open House at San Diego State University one of the two universities I am considering attending, both of which I already know I got in.  San Diego I found out a few weeks ago and UC Davis I found out in October of last year.  I had not thought I was going to get into San Diego State because it is an impacted campus and at the Open House I learned they only admitted 9% of their transfer students that applied.  GO ME!!! 🙂 Now I have to make a decision and it seems almost everyone, at least the few who know are pushing me towards UC Davis.  It is closer and a better school, two things I forgot to put into my pros and cons chart.  I made it to go over with my case manager and the therapist.  I kinda see if I move to Davis it going a lot like when I went to William Jessup and lived in the dorms which was just about the same distance away.  San Diego is a 9 hour drive and about an hour and 45 minute flight.  Here is my chart:

SDSU vs UC Davis

For my blind followers: Pros of UC Davis are:

  • 19 languages offeres
  • Has linguistics Ma and PhD
  • Already admitted to linguistics program
  • Same psych treatment team

Pros of San Diego State University

  • Cheaper
  • LGBT BA
  • Wider LGBT Community
  • Very good Open house, feel some direction
  • Only plan on being there 2-3 years

Cons of UC Davis

  • Not even an LGBT minor
  • Maybe too close to home

Cons of SDSU

  • Not yet admitted to linguistics program
  • Practically starting over
  • Need to make the decision quickly, by may 1st

    You’re making your choice by being logical. That’s a good start and not something I do that often. Good luck

      Thanks. I just feel real bummed because it seems everyone in my life is not even considering SDSU.

I'l love to hear your thoughts
