First of all, I'm a computer science major looking to transfer next year to Riverside, Irvine, Santa Barbara and Davis. My top choice would definitely be Irvine or Santa Barbara. I'm also looking into a couple CSUs. My GPA is a 3.2.
Anyway, in the spring I'll be taking 3 pre-requisite classes as stated on assist.org. However, that's only 12 units and I was planning on taking 16 units. The last class I was planning on taking has been cut, so now I'm left with the following lingering question:
Since the class has been cut, should I take a '********' class in order to get an easy A and thus boost up my GPA? Would it count even if it's not on the list of classes in assist.org for my intended major? Or should I just take the 3 classes I have planned (as part of the pre-reqs) and not worry about that 4th?
Basically, I want to know if taking another class not related to my major will help boost my GPA assuming by the end of the spring I get a 4.0 GPA
