Why does everyone want to go to college in California?

Anyway -

I have the reverse dilemma. I am on schedule to graduate next year from a CSU, and I'm trying to find a graduate program in marine biology or marine science or related field somewhere in or near New York State, preferably within driving distance of New York City.

My fiance has an internship with a company whose main location is in New York, and if he is hired with them we might move to New York after we are married. I saw a really nice one in Rhode Island, wow it looked good - but it is too far to commute, way too far. Any suggestions/help?

I am a sixth grader but for years, I have been interested in studying sharks. I would really like some input on how to pick which college or university to go to get that opportunity. I would really really love it if you people would help me.
Thanks a bunch.

yeah i want to be a Marine Biologist to and im 15. I haven't done anything with the deep sea but i would love to. Plus my boyfriend is going to take me scuba diving and i don't know if i will change my mind or not i don't think i will but you never know until you have done it before. I mean we are young and there are so many things me might change to or want to be something different. What i would say is learn alot about Marine Biology then see what you think but don't just focus on that learn about other jobs to and see if you might like something better.

Im in 8th grade and want to be a Marine Biologist im not sure what collage Would be the best but I do know that, any one who wants to be a marine biologist should work VERY hard in science classes, be a good swimmer, take extra biology classes,and love lakes and oceans!

Hey Sarah...yeah me too!! I'm a junior I've wanted to be a marine biologist since the 2nd grade. Check out Univerity of Tampa, New College of Florida, and Eckerd (also in Florida). Those are the ones I'm looking at now and they're all located on the coast. Its also a good idea to look for a school that has zoology too, as you might be interested in different species of animals.
You should also get your SCUBA certification. I have mine and although I've never gone deep sea diving, I have been scuba diving in Australia and was the best thing I have ever done!!! Hope this helps.

Hi, im 13 years old and im soon going to be in high school. Ive wanted to be a marine biologist since 2nd grade. I recently have been doing research and looking for good colleges for this topic. I really would enjoy training whales or even dolphins, but im not sur eif this fits into marine biology? and to tell you the truth im not so big on scuba diving. so i was wondering if there was anything else for jobs that i would enjoy. im an excellent swimmer and im really eco-friendly, im recently volunteering for roadside clean up and other enviromental activities...
does anyone have any suggestions for a good college and job that is in the field of marine biology (without the scuba diving)???

Most of the universities in the U of C system are actually quite good. In particular I'd recommend taking a close look at (in no particular order) UC San Diego, Santa Barabara, Santa Cruz, Northridge. Several of the others have very good programs as well, but those stand out in my opinion. For reference, I'm finishing an MS in marine biology and looking to start a Ph.D.

If you are looking for good Marine Biology schools in California,I suggest either UCSD (San Diego) or UCSC (Santa Cruz). East Coasters best bet is Florida, if you consider yourself dedicated to Marine Biology, you might consider moving there, because im sure these statesalso have thebest job opportunities as well.

Hey im in the 10th grade and I also want to be a marine biologist. Depending on what type of student you are I would suggest going to Hawaii Pacific University. They have a wonderful program. I have done numerous research papers on marine biology and have used Hawaii for a reference. Another school to look at is University of South Florida. Their program is good also. Im going to apply for an internship at the MOTE MARINE research lab. It is always on Discovery. They do great research.
Good Luck!
