I need help deciding where to go, some one please help.

I'm looking to major in psychology, so it's a must that the school have a good (and preferably renown) psychology department(as I'm planing on applying to graduate school). My EFC is very low(4) so, the school will also need to offer quiet a bit of financial aid. The setting/location is not very important to me, but I would prefer: to stay on the west coast, and be able to live on campus.

I have a 3.8 gpa, scored a 1370 on my SAT, and am planing on attending a local community college at first, and then transferring. Where should/could I go?

Why community college? You have excellent scores. Did you take a challenging courseload? Any APs? If so, and if you can raise your SATs by 100 points, you have a real shot at many top private universities that would cover your financial needs.

'Why community college?'

I'm going to a comunity college to be close to home. Why? Well I graduated a little early, I'm 16, and honestly I just don't think I'm ready to be on my own quite yet.

If you want to stay on the West Coast, look into the UC System. Many of the schools (not just UCLA, and UC Berkeley) have top notch psychology departments. A short list:

UC Los Angeles
UC Berkeley
UC San Diego
UC Riverside
UC Santa Barbara

Psychology is a popular major and you shouldn't have problems finding a very good program on the West Coast. All of the programs have famous faculty members.
