I transferred to Portland State University from Portland CommunityMay 24 2005Sociology
I transferred to Portland State University from Portland Community College - saved me some money taking that route, and PCC is a stellar school. PSU is great, but the faculty are less approachable than at PCC, mostly I suspect this is due to the numbers of students and pressures to produce research. Overall, I am very pleased with both schools.

It was easy to get into PSUMar 23 2005Business - Management and Administration
It was easy to get into PSU. All you have to do is fill out the application, pay the application fee, and you are pretty much in. PSU is Oregon's largest university, with over 20,000 students, so I am pretty sure they accept almost anyone.
SAT: 1300 Female

To get in: not hardAug 22 2003Biology
to get in: not hard. graduate from high school with at least a 2.5, i think (requirements may have changed)...or, failing that, have an SAT of a certain amount that makes up for the crappy GPA. it's an urban university, so even the people who dropped out of college cuz they sucked will get in. for example, me: academic probation from my first school and i could still go to PSU. yes, i suck.
SAT: 1470 Female
