the "B average" reference is misleading (& unsourced). CSU never said it would only take kids w/ B averages. What they said is that each campus will assure a spot to all "CSU eligible" (top third of class) kids from their "service area." So every Paly kids who is eligible has a spot. At the other CSUs, there will be a huge campus-by-campus range, i.e. B average definately won't get you into Cal Poly & probably not enough for SD or maybe Sonoma. But it's a sure bet at East Bay, Dominguez Hills and Monterey.
For those who opt instead for community colleges, some advice: Get your classes/sections as soon as possible, because the popular ones WILL fill up far faster than in previous years.
