I disliked the environment of community colleges and ever since hearing about UCLA extension, I've been wondering if it's possible to transfer to UCLA (or to any other four year college) after completing 2 years worth of studies at UCLA extension school.
I actually plan to take CLEP (or finals/assessment tests if provided by UCLA extension school professors) and skip about a year worth of college therefore I will technically only take 30 or so units if UCLA extension school works like community colleges.
Otherwise, my initial plan was to start at a community college at 1.5 to second year level in most subjects including science and mathematics this summer and apply to UCLA this coming winter.
