Hi I am planning to transfer to UCSB as Chemistry major. I am taking bio, chem and physics at CC this semester and realize that it is a bad idea. I am planning to drop physics with a W. I have fulfilled the requirement of 1 year gchem, 1 year bio, and 1 year calculus, but this is my first physics class. I am not planning to take any physics class prior transfer if I drop physics now. I'm not surde how this will affect my chance to go to UCSB. I have read the requirement from UCSB, and it doesn't seem to require finishing physics for admittance. My reason of dropping Physics is that I might end up with a straight B this semester, so I want to focus on my other 2 classes. What do you guys think? Thank you.
This is from UCSB website:
"All biological science majors must attain a grade point average of 2.70 or better in science and math preparatory courses, complete one year of general chemistry with laboratory, and complete a sequence (2-3 terms) of major-applicable general biology with laboratory with no individual grades less than C. To graduate within two years of transferring, it is strongly recommended that applicants also complete one year of organic chemistry with laboratory, one year of general physics with laboratory, and one year of calculus or calculus with statistics. Any of these courses completed with a grade lower than C might not satisfy course prerequisites at UCSB."
