What is EOP?

edited November 2006 in College Admissions
On the UC application, they ask if I'm applying for EOP or not? Can someone please explain to me what is that program. Is there any advantage in applying for that? Would that affect your admission decision in any way?

    Yes, EOP is a program for students who might not normally attend college. In other words, disadvantaged, neither parent has attended college, etc.

    EOP is short for educational opportunity program

    The Educational Opportunity Programs (EOP) represent the University of California's effort to identify, retain, and graduate a diverse student body. With that in mind, the mission of EOP is to promote the retention, academic success, and graduation rates of first generation college, low-income, and educationally disadvantaged student populations, and to assist these students with preparation for admission to graduate and professional schools.

    EOP provides an array of services including orientation, academic and personal advising, peer advising, tutorial assistance in specific subject and writing areas, and preparation for graduate and professional schools.

    Well, I'm going to be the first one in my family to go to college. So I should apply for EOP? What I'm still confused about is the comment above "Students who might not normally attend college". Is that students who are doing bad in school? Or is this program for disable students?
