Yesterday I attended the info session at CSU Channel Islands (I will be applying to 9 school's, this is my first choice) and was told that even if you only take one class at a community college in their residency area you can get the 4 points. With those 4 points I would have 35 points and without I would only have 31 points. I know that 2012's applicant point range ended up cutting off at 31 but the info for 2013 was not included and he couldn't remember. The dilemma is I live 61 miles from the nearest CC in their residency. My idea was to take one class next fall at that CC. It would be an added expense of $20 a week in gas plus obviously the long commute through LA, but I most likely could get a class between traffic times. Is this too crazy or is it worth the investment?
