Cal Poly Pomona applications for fall 2014 entrance have increased to 46,202 undergraduate applicants, which is 2,899 more than the previous year (43,303).

“The increases in rates show the university’s soaring popularity among CSU campuses. People are realizing the value of our polytechnic, learn-by-doing approach, which has been a hallmark of our approach to education. We make it a point to blend theory and practical experience. That leads to prepared graduates and highly successful alumni,” said university President Michael Ortiz. “We used to be the best kept secret in higher education, and now the word is quickly spreading about the quality of a Cal Poly Pomona education.”

Among freshman applications, the university experienced a 4.2 percent increase over last year with 32,418 freshman applications. In comparison, CSU system applications are up 2.8 percent.

Transfer applications have increased 13.2 percent. Cal Poly Pomona has the second highest transfer application increase in the CSU, only behind Bakersfield. At the system level, campuses saw an average increase of 0.2 percent.

The increase in applications to Cal Poly Pomona is also higher than local CSUs in Dominguez Hills, Fullerton, Long Beach, Los Angeles, and San Bernardino.

Undergraduate admissions offers will be sent beginning mid-January and will continue through April 15.

That is because this school specializes in STEM majors. You make much more money in STEM jobs. Frankly, you should be going to UC Berkeley or Irvine, but this school is there for the rejects.
