Everyone wants to have a good time at college and drink and adhere to the college stereotype; to a certian point, I don't think that's a problem.

Don't waste your money like me, commit 100% to your studies and to the industry that you want to be a part of. That is precisely what I did when I went to Cal Poly San Luis Obispo for Aerospace Engineering. I spent five years at Cal Poly only to come out with a 2.99 G.P.A. It doesn’t matter if GPA isn’t an accurate indicator of a person’s work abilities, the companies out there use it. So you need to have a good one in order to get a job in your field.


From campus tours, and talking to students and staff that currently attend the school, the kind of person who should NOT attend this school is someone who is lazy, arrogant, and unfocused.
