Transferring to USC/ Go to CC or a 4 year help
Hi all. I've been following the USC transfer posts for awhile, and now I'm in a situation where I want to eventually transfer into USC. I'm not sure if I should have posted in that section or not. Anyway I'm graduating from high school this upcoming June with a 3.6-3.7 gpa unweighted and a 1970 sat. USC has been my dream school (Marshall), and I was not accepted. I got into UCI, UCD, and SCU. I've been considering the cc route, and attempting to transfer to USC in the fall of '08. Would it better that I attend UCI and attempt to transfer to USC, or do the cc route and attempt to transfer? I know that I would need to find out which courses transfer with UCI because USC doesn't have an articulation agreement unlike the cc that I would attend. If I attended the cc I would be working as an assistant track coach for my high school, and as a personal trainer part time at the local gym. I feel that I would also be able to look for internships and other extracurriculars easier by staying local. These are some of the factors that have me leaning towards cc. Any opinions? Sorry for the long read. Thanks for any input provided.
