Question by Kat: What college should I attend?
Help! I don’t know where to go to school. I want to major in Political Science and get a good job in a competitive field. Here are my choices:
San Francisco State- in-state, cheaper tuition, not a prestigious school
Cal Poly San Luis Obispo: not a great location but cheaper tuition
University of Nevada, Reno: out of state tuition, good school
Boise State University: tuition break, far from home (not such a bad thing:)
University of Connecticut: EXPENSIVE and far from home, but it is a great school and will open up more doors.
Do schools really matter when looking for jobs and internships? I live in California and I have a cumulative 3.76 gpa, and a 1760 SATs. Any suggestions?? THANKS

Schools matter only in that they will give you the connections that you will need later on. If you really want to pursue a political career of any kind you’ll want to be in a place where you’ll get the best connections.
Go for Boise State or U of Conneticut. Paying the loans back on the latter will suck but I can guarantee you’ll have good connections there. If the loans aren’t as much of an option, location-wise Boise will be better for you.
Good luck! College can be a great time, and it sounds like you have the smarts for it
