    Although PCC has its flaws in many ways, it is definitely a school where you will get the most bang for you buck. A lot of the people I know qualify for the BOGS waiver so their school is free.

    Awesome fin aid opportunities make it totally worth your while. (also PCC is one of the top community colleges in the state). ASG is also awesome and offers neat services especially during finals week (like free massages, therapy puppies, and free testing materials before and during finals week)

    Rivals education you would receive at a decent CSU at less than half the price. If you choose professors carefully you can find Ivy quality classes at $46 per unit, worth it to do the research. Books are overpriced at the bookstore and available across the street at BookMart for a 15% discount.
