I realize this has been asked in a few different variations (I have read the various associated threads here). With that out of the way I just recently separated from the USN active duty. The schools I’m looking at/applying to are SUNY, Cal, MMA, and Texas. I’m single and I will be 35 when classes commence next Fall.
For purely monetary reasons I have put SUNY as my primary interest. For educational purposes and location I’m drawn to MMA. My grades from a decade ago were far, far less then stellar (partied too much studied too little). With my GPA (well below 2.0) I will most likely have to attend 2 semesters at a Community College before transferring (SUNY and MMA seem to have a good transfer system in place).
My question is if you guys were in my shoes which school would you go with and why? I haven’t read very many good things regarding Texas A&M. The last bit of information I came across suggested students were having trouble meeting their seatime/watchstanding req’s.
