    California Colleges?

    I'm starting the college process and have my heart set on California. I know that the cal state school's are nearly impossible to get in to if you live out of state. So my question is does anyone know/have any experience with private schools out there that are willing to take out of state students?

    Point Loma Nazarene. #1 school for surfing in the USA. But zero tolerance on alcohol and drug use.

    If your main intention is surfing, I'd look into some of the UC's, like santa cruz, santa barbara, or san deigo.. I'm on the same boat. Looking into colleges and will not budge from my plan of going to california..

    Or move to Cali after high school, get a low pay job for a year while you surf, to establish residency, then apply as a resident. Any buddies you could bunk with for a year?

    Try University o San Diego USD the Torreros.

    I was in my room and I was just like staring at the wall thinking about everything, but then again I was thinking about nothing. And then my mom came in, and I didn't even know she was there. She called my name and I didn't hear her and then she started screaming “Mike, Mike!” And I go “what? What's the matter?” She goes “what's the matter with you?” I go “there's nothing wrong, mom.” Shes all “don't tell me that! You're on drugs!” I go “no mom, I'm not on drugs. I'm ok, I'm just thinking, you know? Why don't you get me a Pepsi?” She goes “No! You're on drugs!” I go “mom, I'm ok. I'm just thinking.” She goes “No! You're not thinking, you're on drugs! Normal people don't be acting that way!” I go “mom, just get me a Pepsi! Please, all I want is a Pepsi!” And she wouldn't give it to me! All I wanted was a Pepsi, just one Pepsi, and she wouldn't give it to me! Just a Pepsi!

    University of San Diego is a good rec. You should try UCSB, UCSC, and UCSD. You can do the community college thing for a year and then transfer to a UC school. That way you can get residency.
