I am a BioE major at UCSD, trying to do a junior transfer out of here. I really dont like BioE and I don't like San Diego. I came into UCSD as a pre-med, but I don't want to go to med school anymore, but UCSD is only known for its life sciences, so I am trying to switch out.
Is it true that intercampus transfers must have a forceful reason for transferring? In my case, do I have to basically apply to majors that UCSD does not offer?
Also, I know sometimes UC's will ask for additional information, like rec letters and such, does this happen often, and is it for borderline applicants only? I don't know any profs here personally, I hate this school.
Does anyone know much about the ChemE department at Berkeley as far as transferring is concerned? Is it impacted or fairly open to transfers? That's what I am looking at right now.
