    Hi everyone,

    I've been a longtime lurker here, but this will be my first post. I am looking to transfer to a UC/CSU film program from a CCC. I'm a dual citizen, have blotchy complicated foreign academic records, am about to turn 30, and female. I already know that UCLA and USC are the best out there, but given my stats I'm aiming (a lot) lower.

    The programs I am interested in I have barely seen being discussed on this site, but I'm hoping there are people around who could provide some insight into the programs I am looking at, and how they compare or are perceived in the workforce or by grad schools.

    Since I am quite a bit older than the average BA student, it would also be nice to not feel completely isolated from the rest of the student body, so I am also wondering how many non-traditional students can be found in these programs/schools or how accepting the younger ones are of older students).

    I live down the street from CSUN, so that would be the most practical choice, but truth be told, I would love to move elsewhere. I have lived in cities my whole life, but am a scuba diving, horseback riding, redwood tree-hugger at heart. Any advice for someone like me?

    I am currently hoping I can get into UCSC, while getting denied by CSUN, so I can use that excuse to leave LA [​IMG]
    California State University - Monterey Bay (CSUMB) and Humboldt State University (HSU) are my fallback plans if UCSC and CSUN don't accept me. So I'm essentially weighing the following choices:

    A) UCSC: BA Film and Digital Media
    VS
    CSUN : BA Cinema and Television Arts - Multimedia option

    B) CSUMB : BA Teledramatic Arts and Technology
    VS
    HSU : BA Theater and Film - Film Production with a minor in Scientifc Diving
