• How are CSUF and ASU similar? – Fresno and Arizona are very much similar, I could find hardly any differences. But the weather and areas are very similar. Both schools offer my major as well.• How are they different? – Arizona is a slightly bigger school and a little harder to get into then Fresno.
• Why did you choose CSUF and ASU? – I chose CSUF and ASU because they are my top 2 schools and I thought it would be nice to compare the 2.• What do you personally like and dislike about each college? – The only complaint I have is about ASU and that’s out of state tuition… to much money it could be the reason I end up not going there.
Based on your research, has your opinion or interest changed about CSUF or ASU?• No, my research hasn’t changed my opinion on either school. Arizona is still my #1 and Fresno my #2. I would honestly be happy at either school. The only reason I would end up going to Fresno is if my parents really can’t afford ASU or if I don’t get in… God forbid.
